Types of Papers in WormBase (and Postgres)
From WormBaseWikiJump to navigationJump to search
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')
