Datomic Progress

Paul: Gary: porting, perl scripts for querying datomic Juancarlos: finished working through documentation Adam:

  • Method for provisioning machines with Datomic, website, etc.
  • Using Docker to be able to quickly deploy going forward.
  • Makes future development much easier, good error reporting

Genetomic / curation database

  • close to be ready to production, but not quite ready

WormMethods chapters PWS: getting some reviews back


  • PD: Deadline for proposals is next week


  • RL: Do we need to extend the model to accommodate the ontology? Is there a name class?
  • CG: Cost for creating a new class?
  • TD: already bringing in .obo files from other ontologies
  • Discussion about whether or not we will show the data on the website
  • CG: will create a new class for PATO
  • -- discussion about who handles obo->ace files: individual curators.
  • DR: Hold off on changes for micropublication (?Expression_patt)

> DISCONNECTED <------ sorry

Expression_cluster Human_disease (Xiaodong) GO_term (addition to ?Paper)

Raymond: should we go through a two tier process for models?

  • 1. Review process
  • 2. Put it into the models file

PD: discussion typically occurs before the proposal hits the model list? RL: Caltech is dispersed and the expertise is deluded.

WC: How do model changes work for Datomic?


TH: So do we want to formalize/enhance the model proposal process?

PD: Will come up with a working document.


Intermine: SG: Webapp is running and still a few small issues
