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
    • Referencing human genes as expressed components in transgenes so we can link appropriately to human gene pages at the Alliance
    • All of the above will allow collection and display of this data on human gene pages at the Alliance (one of the future plans of the disease/pheno working group)
