Allele / variation curation

  • Follow-up from Caltech call last week

Should the Issue Tracker be private?

Direct Message retention setting on Slack

Should we remove the ability to comment on pages?


  • upload is on the 31st of January (in two weeks)

Protein domains FTP file only has Interpro domains

  • The "protein_domains" file, for example here only has Interpro domains
  • Can we add all domains from all sources (e.g. PFAM, SUPERFAM, SMART etc.)?


Allele curation

  • Hinxton has made it a priority to get the Micropub alleles curated
  • Karen puts in alleles in the name server with paperID, these will be prioritized as well
  • AGR wide focus on allele curation, so give this high priority
  • Kevin is on the AGR Variation working group, WB are ahead in terms of sequence curation and have doing it for years
  • Use case is groups such as the UDN who come in with a human variant, we need to begin work on this. Need displays to map human variant to MOD variant
  • With data with co ordiantes, we have flanking sequences, we have the chromosome sequnce, WB has both
  • What is the backlog? Hinxton can allocate resources to this--Gary Williams can switch from gene to allele curation
  • Caltech system has papers flagged with variation, Hinxton has this as 'pending curation'
