Project meeting


  • All-hands project meeting, or smaller discussion groups?

    • Hinxton folks have more time after the meeting

Discussion topics

  • Organisation, display and querying of RNASeq data (c.f. FlyBase)

  • WormBase / ParaSite integration + cross-resource tools (e.g. enrichment tool)
