A portion of the matrix of commonalities for the reaction canvas in the canvas sort user workshop activity
Data items Group 1 Group 2 Group 3
Overall reaction
Postulated mechanisms
Evidence of mechanism
Kinetic constants for various steps in the mechanism (organism and substrate specific)
Reaction in pathway
Enzyme inhibitors / activators
Literature information i.e. original paper and most recent work on the enzyme
Bioactivity data
Chemical group information (classification)
Chemical compound information (structure, formula, etc.)
Compound supplier information
Safety information on this compound

This canvas illustrates the commonalities of the selection of data items by workshop participants. In this case only three groups agreed on a reaction canvas.
