WS277 data freeze

  • When will the schema be released?
  • Several Caltech curators may take March 30 - April 3 off due to school break

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?
    • The Nameservice is available for curators to request IDs so they can immediately continue with curation.
    • Extend the TempVariationObo system to all classes
    • Potential for a queue system so that they get automatically added (Prototype system was added for different purpose but pulled a long time ago).
    • The rest API could be used to request IDs direct from the OA meaning that they would be available immediately without relying on additional services.

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/
