WormBase Genome Integration Standards
This is a stub so feel free to add content.
At the last ABM we were asked by the board to come up with a list of criteria that a genome assembly/project should attain before WormBase would agree to integrate the Organism into the database.
This topic has re-surfaced as SangerWB have been in contact with the Sanger Helminth group regarding future integration of their data.
They run a pipeline whereby there are 4 phases
1) Production (X months) - No Interest for WB | 2) Finishing (3 Months) - No Interest for WB | 3) Analysis (3 months) - Depending on our criteria we could be interested here | 2) Repeat - Finishing | 3) Repeat - Analysis | x n | 4) Publish when the genome/gene set meets theIR standards
The Helminth Co-ordinator is going to send some information regarding the standards they will be working to but these will be based on the paper "Genome Project Standards in a New Era of Sequencing" so this might be a good starting point for WormBase to base our list of criteria.....(It's not very detailed :( )
