Apologies for Absence

Paul S.


As the call has crept up on us the models proposal deadline has been pushed back to 14th Jan to allow curators to get models in for WS242


Curator: Karen Y.

Theses changes to the ?Gene_cluster, ?Analysis, and ?WBProcess models are meant to allow the incorporation of phylogenetic profile-based gene clusters created by
1. Yuval Tabach et al., 2013 (WBPaper00041947) and
2. Michael Paulini (using all WB nematode species)
The proposed model changes are outlined on this google doc:
Please let me know if you cannot access it.

Construct/Variation Models

Curator: Karen Y.?

We are still working on this, perhaps we can propose it within the 9-14th time frame?


Curator: Gary W.

I would like to propose a new model class to hold information about RNASeq libraries.


GO annotation model

Curator: Kimberly V.

This isn't proposed for WS242, but is currently being developed for future consideration.

Almost complete and will advise when ready.
