Generic Brief Identification

Populating the brief identification from UniProt into the CDS would allow for a better functional description of uncurated genes (especially of non elegans species).


Apologies for lateness


Help issues

  • All resolved or in hand.

Generic Brief Identification

Todd, should we not add these to the gene objects for display on the summary page. (understanding that some rare cases will have multiple functions)

Michael - can use under license if don't change

Remove current brief_identifications in favor of New

Raymond - Should take this as a base and build up

ncRNAs ?? need to add some (source)

Need to conduct an auditing exercise to asses Uniprot and look for peculiarities

Then we can asses where to best place them and explore uses.

Grant review

  • Grant reviewed next week
  • Scores by the following weekend
  • Critiques will take approximately a month

Paul S. - Feeling confident as 2 of 3 grants submitted at same time already turned down.

Additional Items Not discussed

  • Should we change it so database info only comes in through Hinxton?
