Dates list above serves as a guideline

Release schedules

WS247 is expected to be live on April 10. It will happen a few days earlier than scheduled (this weekend)

WS248 is expected to be live on June 1, according to normal schedule. So it will be live for around 3 weeks before Worm Meeting for further testing and bug fixing.

Aric at CGC

Aric at CGC would like to make himself available at the WB booth so that he can assist users in creating accounts on the soon-to-be-launced new CGC strain website.

No objections among WormBase staff

He will send Mary Ann a slide to add to the Workshop/s and is welcome to have a couple of minutes talk time during the workshop/s.

Github Issue

Scott will look at it.


How to get the version for the C elegans data in ParaSite BioMart?

  • Currently using 245
  • Things are more up-to-date in ParaSite BioMart than in Ensembl.

Would be nice to search from WormBase for parasitic genes and link to ParaSite BioMart tools
