For purposes of triage, indexing (data type identification), and fact extraction, here are the types of papers in Postgres and hence, WormBase:

  • Papers acquired from PubMed searches using keyword 'elegans'
  • Papers acquired via Author Request
    • Papers added via author request are typically papers that, for some reason, are missed in the PubMed searches. In the past, we only accepted papers on C. elegans; now, as more comparative nematode genomics is present in WormBase, we are also accepting papers about other nematodes.
  • Papers entered for writing Concise Descriptions (for 'functional annotation only')
