HGNC IDs/name objects in WB

  • Have seen some e-mails/tickets about HGNC ID/names in WormMine and plans to have them in FTP orthology files
  • Are/will HGNC genes be made available as objects in WB so that we can refer to them in different datatype curations?
  • Use cases:
    • Formally refer to the standard HGNC human gene in disease model curation and other types of curation
    • This will allow collection of disease (and other) data that refers to human genes in MOD curation and the display of it on human gene pages at Alliance (one of the future plans of the disease/pheno working group)
    • Referencing human genes as expressed components in transgenes so we can link appropriately to human gene pages at the Alliance
