Agenda and Minutes

Looking for new ways to allocate students working remotely

  • Train students to do curation on phenotype and GO.
    • Kimberly will send out the GO micropub.

Proposed New File Format for GO

  • GAF files will still be supported in the future for current tools.
  • RO is already used in WB, but not for annotation extension.

AFP alerts for new positive papers for datatypes

Jae would like to receive these digest emails with higher frequency (currently once a month). Need to discuss this with other curators and Hinxton

  • Everybody agreed on weekly alerts. They will be set up for the next AFP release

WS277 upload

Gene descriptions:

  • As of Wed. 03/18, 3pm PST, there are no WS276 files to run our pipeline on, so we have run the new code on WS275 files.
  • The new code reflects the change for orthology that now selects only those human orthologs for elegans genes that have been called by 3 or more methods.
  • We will alert Users to this change for WS276 descriptions via release notes, blog etc.
  • We decided to wait for the previous release files. Wen is already generating her files from the staging ftp site.

Human gene IDs from HGNC

  • Human genes should be referenced as HGNC ID objects in WB curation database.
  • We are currently using Ensembl IDs.
  • We decided that Hinxton will take care of generating a new file that will be imported into the OA.

Mailing list issues

  • Caltech accounts are being blocked by Google. Everybody should subscribe to the lists with their google accounts (WB.org or other)

WB f2f meeting

  • Topic specific calls could be easier to manage.
