Conference call 19th May 2011
Apologies for absence:
Paul S. - GO meeting
Kimberly - GO meeting
Start 16:33 GMT
eggNOG discussion and model change implications for CalTech - Michael
Michael proposed 2 options but didn't get a preference from caltech
Option 2 is clean but requires CalTech to modify their postgress->.ace dumping code.
Raymond couldn't see a problem but deferred to Kimberly and Juancarlos to look into this proposal.
Michael also want to remove unused database connections from the models
HOPS_group // Sonnhammer RIO_group // Eddy
Will revisit at the next conference call.
Steinernema carpocapsae - integration - open
No specifics could be discussed as Paul S. and Erich are the main players.
Need to re-visit and improve wiki document to decide policy for accepting submissions.
Submissions / suggestions for WormBase plenary talk.
The talk is short: 7 minutes. What data and curatorial accomplishments do we want to emphasize? - Todd
Todd has a 1st session talk (7min)
Could curators send him specifics on data/curational achievements you feel should be highlighted.
Prep for workshop; slide templates, etc. - Todd
Short slots so need consistency between presentations.
Raymond volunteered to prepare and circulate a template.
Should think about getting presentations prepared for review in the next couple of weeks.
Raymond - There is still time to iron out issues / content. Wen and Ruihua to prep slides asap.
Todd enquired about post IWM meeting as we aren't having one before. Planned for the afternoon of the last day of the IWM (Paul S. to sort room??)
New website timeline - Todd
Todd and Co. wrapping up the final UI elements:
Registration Look + feel Back end code refinements Hosting Environment
Full Production Env. coming soon to allow for curator testing to identify issues/refinements/features list.
Todd hopes for a full "Laundry List" of issues so that the web team can hammer through them.
Beta release scheduled for IWM so we can make most of user feedback during meeting.
Chris proposed Beta release just prior to IWM to prep community for face to face feedback at meeting.
Abby a little concerned about time frame as testing is being conducted and this will eat into time left before meeting.
Todd - Blast indices include BLASTN against "genes"
It appears that this is a blast against genomic clones and not genes.
Re-label for time being if it works.
Todd emailed sanger about this issue as well as a few other things about blast.
Can Sanger provide EST sets with each build.
Sanger already has the data and will work to supply these using/adapting some of the code supplied to get the expected format.
Offline discussion will ensue.
Sanger email contact.
firstname.lastname@example.org contact list should be seen as an outgoing list.
People should use the new email@example.com address for contact
