This issue is assigned to Todd. It should be reviewed again in the future to track progress.


Paul D - there should be no problem implementing this, it is a simple addition of tags

Chris - will continue work on refining the tags for phenotype curation.

There was a discussion of sending papers to the Alliance before peer-review.

Wen / Paul D / Kevin - Discussion of when the changes can be expected for WS275. Paul D can make the changes to the models by next Wednesday or Thursday. The data upload is scheduled for November 22nd. It is early to avoid Thanksgiving and Xmas.


Scott said he had a user who was complaining about the number of transcripts in daf-16.

He will send Gary W his details and to have a look at the problem.


Paul S - there is a problem with many members having problems attending the SAB. We used to have a joint SAB and project meeting. We should separate out these functions.

Paulo - WormMine is being updated . We are talking to the other mods to work on AllianceMine next year. The vairious ModMines will be updated to InterMine 4.1 then possibilities will be explored after that.
