WBConfCall 2012.12.20-Agenda and Minutes
Proposed Model changes
In light of the immanent holiday season and the fact that a number of people have expressed a wish to upload early for WS236, the models were tagged (WS236) on Monday 17th December. This will give people an extra 4 days to prepare uploads if they are planning on uploading in 2012.
There will therefore be no further discussion of these models.

PD - The models were signed off early to help people upload early. There were a few issues with one of the modesl but this has been resolved.
Advisory Board Meeting
Some ideas from the previous conference call:
- Advisory Board Meeting wiki for agenda and other meeting details
- what might WormBase want to do in the future?
- what does WormBase need to discuss amongst ourselves?
- ask the advisers beforehand for comments/complaints/idea - Paul Sternberg
- PIs/Groups need to decide which presentations should be made
- share presentations beforehand, so we can coordinate the content
PK - As part of the MRC grant application the PIs have been discussing rationalisations of priorities for curation. One thing that we have been thinking of how to rationalise is the TierI / Tier II curation split.
PS - We should approach curation de novo and forget the history
PK - Yes - we should discuss this with the SAB, and at the pre-meeting
PS - We could also raise how we prioritise what we do
PK - It has been hard to fit justification of the japonica annotation effort into the grant application
PK - We should brainstorm ideas for new features for the web at the pre-meeting and in the main meeting to run it by the SAB advisors. This will get them talking about functionality and tools.
