Comments from previous meeting 2011

SAB meeting would benefit from an overview at the start, or before the meeting.

The SAB wanted a list of questions to be answered.


Each site should prepare talks, possibly not everyone as in previous years?

Should aim to highlight key achievements to establish background, but then concentrate on where we are going. Could propose alternatives?

Other meeting details

What might WormBase want to do in the future?

  • curational priorities
    • Officially drop tier II (re-think historical priorities)
Currently Tier II gene curation is on a response basis, should we maintain this level
Curation of other non-elegans data (RNASeq/expression profiling/Orthology prediction and data transfer), 
     should we continue to build on this?
