WS270 release schedule
WS270 Schedule for submission? (No date is filled in the schedule)
- Need to check with Kevin.
- For WS269, Hinxton will start uploading Nov 16 and will finish around Chrismas
Gene description package
- Not yet ready for handing over to Hinxton yet, but will be in the next few releases to be run within the Hinxton pipelines
Question about data modelling
Should we proposing new data models in using Datomic modelling?
- Ideally would have an architecture neutral way of modelling, but it’s not in place yet.
- For now model in ACeDB and convert at Hinxton to Datomic. Curators don’t need to be too concerned about Datomic Modelling, if the current process works.
What work is being done on the Name Service? Will it replace the modelling of the Gene or some other classes in Datomic? Will it become the primary database?
- It’s a replacement of the name service (managing names and history of gene through merges and split). It’s primary focused on gene at the moment, but Matt is working on making it more generic and handling other classes
- Potentially add functionality, such as those of the existing geneace. So people can query it instead of relying on file dumps
Is the expression_pattern_annotation class a good fit for Datomic Modelling?
- All the modelling discussion so far are through email, will need to talk with Kevin about this
Question to think about: what’s the advantage in modelling Datomic vs Modelling in ACeDB?
