Migrating Paper Pipeline to Alliance

  • Meeting abstracts
    • Continuing to review what we have and standardize bibliographic info before we migrate
    • QC checks highlight some older abstracts with little-to-no data - propose to invalidate these so we don't migrate poor quality paper data to the Alliance
    • We can always respond to individual requests to add old meeting abstracts if they arise

Commercial antibodies

  • Daniela contacted ZFIN and FlyBase. ZFIN does curate commercial antibodies only if found in publications. Waiting for FlyBase feedback (Sian out).
  • TODO: Contact TAIR and see if they including commercial antibodies and if they charge companies (Daniela sent a message on slack). Tanya: We have not charged for placing the links but have strongly encouraged a corporate subscription for the two companies.
  • This can be an Alliance project. Need to contact companies and see who is interested (need to have a price in mind for that).
  • Can pilot text mining for commercial antibodies
  • GeneCards charges for inclusion of commercial reagents on their website: "Companies that wish to provide deep links to their products (e.g. reagents, assays, antibodies, clones, etc) in the Services and other relevant sections of GeneCards, should contact sales@lifemapsc.com."
