Help Desk

  • The following 3 items are linked and the Gene has been named and a new lab created:
    • Has anyone replied to Padhu Padmanabhan (email Feb 4)? - Yes Paul D. replied on the 4th directing them to the genenames list
    • Asked about indicating Y53C10A.5 as having plasmanylethanolamine delta-1-desaturase (EC activity - Can be closed
    • Has anyone replied to Montserrat Elías regarding naming of same gene, Y53C10A.5? - This name has been agreed by Tim S. and the issue can be closed.
  • Unsure on this:
    • Could this be added as a GO MF (GO:0050207)?

Rearrangement IDs

Nameserver-to-Caltech info transmission

  • Caltech curators would like quick turn around when requesting names/IDs
  • Currently relies on a nightly cronjob to dump GeneACE to Caltech Postgres database
  • Caltech can create a local CGI to immediately update Postgres/OA with new terms before nightly dump occurs
  • Is there an effective mechanism to make updates to Caltech Postgres/OA as immediately as possible?

Disease info changes in 6 classes

  • I propose making these changes for WS278, gives us more time to revisit/change dumpers, and test the data here at Caltech (Ranjana)
  • If we want to go ahead with the new ?Genotype class, that's separate and I'm fine with that (Ranjana)

Single cell expression tool

  • Eduardo is looking for feedback on his tool to query C. elegans single cell expression
  • Tool is here: http://de.wormcells.com/
