?Person class

ORCID is becoming more widely used so it would be good to store peoples ID in their WBPerson record

?Person PostgreSQL_id UNIQUE Text     // for linking to internal RDB // Text instead of Int so it says WBperson####
        DB_info Database ?Database ?Database_field ?Text     //used for storing ORCID IDs etc.

?Interaction and ?Feature models

Accommodate Sequence Feature objects as interactors (e.g. for protein-DNA physical interactions or cis-regulatory control regions in regulatory interactions). Thus, we would like to propose the following model changes:

?Interaction model:

1) Add a "Feature_interactor" tag in the model like this:


       Feature_interactor ?Feature XREF Associated_with_Interaction
  1. Interactor_info

2) Delete the "Interaction_associated_feature" tag

?Feature model:

1) Change:


       Associated_with_Interaction ?Interaction XREF




       Associated_with_Interaction ?Interaction XREF Feature_interactor

?Movie and Expression_pattern changes

What has changed: - Text in DB_INFO tag not indexed as it is just a reference to an external accession. - Microarray and Tiling_array now linking to ?Microarray_experiment and ?Analysis


Reference ?Paper XREF Movie
DB_INFO ?Database ?Database_field Text

DB_INFO ?Database ?Database_field Text # PaulD Can go at the very bottom
Type    Reporter_gene ?Text
                        In_situ Text
                        Antibody ?Text
                        Northern Text // Wen [krb 030425]
                        Western Text  // Wen
                        RT_PCR Text   // Wen
                        Localizome ?Text //added by Wen
                        Microarray ?Microarray_experiment 
                        Tiling_array ?Analysis 



Add: DB_INFO ?Database ?Database_field Text # PaulD Can go at the very bottom of the model

Add Tiling_array and Microarray under Type

               Type    Reporter_gene ?Text
                       In_situ Text
                       Antibody ?Text
                       Northern Text // Wen [krb 030425]
                       Western Text  // Wen
                       RT_PCR Text   // Wen
                       Localizome ?Text //added by Wen
                       Microarray Text
                       Tiling_array Text

Both changes are required to allow linking to Miller's Tiling array graphs.

The DB_INFO tag will contain the links and the tags for the type will serve to distinguish Microarrays and Tiling Arrays for separate display in the Expression widget -see enclosed screenshot.



DB_INFO ?Database ?Database_field Text Reference ?Paper XREF Movie

The DB_INFO tag will allow us to link out to the database. Since we did not hear back from Kris Gunsalus for downloading and storing the movies we are going to store the urls and link from there. The Reference tag is needed to have a more structured organization of the files that will allow easier addition.



Karen would like to use this underused class for phylogenetic gene clusters

This class was designed for clustering genes such as the rRNAs and act-123, but can definitely be used for other functions. Currently this is not displayed on the site

Example publication Tabach et al concerning a C. elegans phylogenetic profile based gene clustering that would be included in the Biological Topics pages.

Nature (2012) doi:10.1038/nature11779

?Construct Class

Bumped to WS242

A new class for storing Construct reagents used for generating Variation data

Summary   ?Text
Feature_object ?Feature XREF Construct
Gene ?Gene
Gene_site_targeted ?SO_term    
Fusion_reporter ?Text //fluorescent proteins GFP, RFP, mCherry, etc. (these can be put in model if people wish)
Purification_tag ?Text //FLAG, HA, Myc, TAP, etc. (these can be put in model if people wish)
Other_reporter ?Text //(if fusion reporter and purification tags are included in model, this tag is needed to other reporters) 
    Engineered mutation
    Complex // complex changes (e.g. GFP fusion plus point mutations)  
    Selection_marker     ?Text    //for unc-119(+), lin-15(+), drug selection
    Construction_summary  ?Text    //Backbone vector, mol bio

Reference ?Paper XREF Construct  
Person ?Person XREF Construct

?Protein Class


Remove the UNIQUE from the DB_info Database Database_field UNIQUE TEXT

This prevents the addition of multiple DB connections for a protein.

Extras from the deadline call

?Expression_cluster and ?Analysis class - Wen


Remove the line of "Analysis ?Analysis", and replace it with these two tags:

?Expression_cluster Description ?Text // refers to Biological meaning of this cluster group

                               Attribute_of Microarray_experiment ?Microarray_experiment  XREF Expression_cluster //Wen
                                                 RNAseq ?Analysis XREF Expression_cluster_RNAseq
                                                 Tiling_array ?Analysis XREF Expression_cluster_tiling_array

Also in ?Analysis class, we will need to update the tag:

?Analysis ...

              Expression_cluster_RNAseq ?Expression_cluster XREF RNAseq
              Expression_cluster_tiling_array ?Expression_cluster XREF Tiling_array

?DO_term - Ranjana


Worm_disease_model ?Text ?Species #Evidence

For capturing a human readable description of the worm model.

Format: free-text description.

Rational: Indexed ?Text and attached to DO_term, so if someone searched on a disease they would find the worm model. Currently I have no way of curating such disease models, because I don't have an object to attach it to.
