=== New SObA graphs ===
+
[[WormBase-Caltech_Weekly_Calls_August_2019|August]]
* May put graphs within existing widgets, but don't need to rush to get that ready for IWM
 
  
=== Phenotype association file format ===
+
[[WormBase-Caltech_Weekly_Calls_September_2019|September]]
* May be best to leave the format as is
 
* There are problems; paper IDs keep switching columns
 
* Would need to revisit the reasoning for why we do it that way
 
* When will the Alliance produce a similar/replacement file? Not sure
 
  
=== Phenotype requests ===
 
* Sent out 1140 emails on May 30
 
* Since have received 374 annotations from 54 papers (42 requested, 12 additional)
 
* 21 papers flagged as not having phenotypes
 
* Of 1140 papers emailed about, 35 emails bounced, and have received some flagging or curation on 63 (63/1105 = ~6% response rate), in first week

=== SObA comparison graphs ===
 +
* Raymond and Juancarlos have worked on a SObA-graph based comparison tool to compare two genes for ontology-based annotations

* What information does a user most care about?
 +
# What terms (nodes) are annotated to gene 1 and what terms to gene 2
 +
# For a given term, what is the relative number of annotations between gene 1 and gene 2.
 +
# For a given node, what is the relative number of annotations each gene has to the total annotations of that gene.
 +
* # 3 is actually what we applied to size the nodes in the single-gene version of SObA. Thus, not surprisingly, I think it is important.
 +
* Generally people like Prototype 2 as a default view; we could possibly have a toggle to see the other view
 +
* In either case users need a good legend and/or documentation
 +
* Jae, it would be good if a user could specifically highlight nodes specific to each gene and gray-out or de-emphasize the common nodes
  
=== IWM ===
+
=== Germ line discussion ===
* Coordinating transportation of swag boxes to Pauley Pavilion
+
* Currently, the anatomy ontology has "germ line" as a type of "Cell" and a type of "Tissue", and "germ cell" as a type of "germ line"
* Workshop on Saturday June 22, from 1pm to 2:30pm
+
* Chris would like to (1) remove "germ line" from under "Cell" and leave it under "Tissue" and (2) move "germ cell" out from under "germ line" and place directly under "Cell"
* Saturday morning micropublication breakfast 7:30 - 8:30am
+
** [https://github.com/obophenotype/c-elegans-gross-anatomy-ontology/pull/23 Made pull request]
* Workshop
+
* Chris will update pull request to include a change to move "germline precursor cell" out from under "germ line" and place it under "Cell" (done)
** Presenters: it may be best to present as use cases rather than a research project
 
** Chris will cover SimpleMine for Wen
 
** Chris: won't do live demo; only screenshots, maybe some video
 
* Paul's lab will do marathon bibs to show lab affiliation and graphical abstract
 
* Paul's talk
 
** Cover Alliance
 
** New features
 
*** SObA (for new data)
 
*** Complete for protein-protein interactions
 
*** RNASeq tools
 
*** Updated automated gene concise descriptions?
 
** Phenotype community curation
 
*** Chris will send Paul numbers on: top community curators, overall stats (number of annotations, papers, curators)
 
** Author First Pass
 
** Micropublication
 
  
=== SGD SAB ===
+
=== Script to remove blank entries from Postgres ===
* Paul attended
+
* Chris stumbled across several entries in the OA that were blank (empty strings) or consisted of only whitespace, some of which were causing errors upon upload to ACEDB
* Alliance publicity was discussed
+
* Juancarlos has written a script to look for all such entries; 66 tables have them on sandbox (likely same on live OA)
* SAB likes the Alliance orthology features
+
* Does anyone object to removing these entries throughout Postgres?
* Working on topics: displaying papers and data
+
* Juancarlos will remove all the empty fields identified by his script
* Pathways: discussion about best approach
 
* Metabolic engineering
 
* Meta data about RNASeq data
 
** SPELL tool, basically only tool of its kind available; need new tools
 
* Species-specific proteins: how best to find them? HMMs (Jackhammer)?
 
  
=== Concise descriptions ===
 
* Progress being made within the Alliance to update the automated concise gene descriptions
 
* We will still accept manually written descriptions and display them in parallel with automated descriptions
 
  
=== Micropublications ===
+
== October 10, 2019 ==
* If people are requesting manually written gene descriptions, they could submit a microreview
+
 
* Concern was expressed about how to handle a really high throughput of submissions:
+
=== Biocuration 2020 ===
** Daniela: Working towards automating as much of the processing pipeline as possible
+
* Held in Bar Harbor, Maine (organized by JAX, including MGI's Sue Bello and Cindy Smith)
** Raymond: The throughput will be handled appropriately depending on demand; priority scheme will help
+
* Dates: Sunday May 17th to Wednesday May 20th, 2020
** Not getting lots of submissions yet, probably won't be inundated in the near future
+
* Will have 3rd POTATO workshop
** Karen: tools are still being developed; the platform is not being advertised as much as it could be; will ramp up outreach and communication once tools are in place to handle more submissions
+
* [https://www.jax.org/education-and-learning/education-calendar/2020/05-may/biocuration-2020-conference Meeting website]
* Karen: Micropublications team will reach out to curators to help build submission forms for respective data types
+
* Key Dates
 +
** October 31, 2019 - Paper Submission Deadline
 +
** January 24, 2020 - Abstract  and Workshop Submission Deadline
 +
** March 6, 2020 - Notification of Acceptance
 +
** April 6, 2020 - Early Bird Registration Ends
 +
** May 8, 2020 - Registration Deadline
 +
* Academic ISB Member, early bird registration fee is $250
 +
* Author First Pass form paper, submitting to Database, biocuration issue (managed by biocuration group); authors have an opportunity to present at Biocuration conference

 +
=== SObA comparison tool ===
 +
* [http://wobr2.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/soba_multi.cgi?action=Gene+Pair+to+SObA+Graph Prototype #1] updated
 +
 
 +
=== Textpresso derived paper connections ===
 +
* For example for strains and constructs, maybe anatomy terms?
 +
* May want to flag Textpresso predictions (as opposed to manually connected)
 +
* Couple of options:
 +
** 1) At time of build, populate the papers (in ACEDB/Datomic) into a 'Putative_reference' tag and display in a distinct 'Putative references' widget
 +
** 2) Not part of database build, but make associations live (using RESTful API to link out to Textpresso and submit search with URL) using Textpresso with links to Textpresso and Textpresso results, giving users chance to see context of matches in sentences at the Textpresso site
 +
*** A link to Textpresso could be done regardless of other approaches; low-hanging fruit?
 +
*** Do a diff so that Textpresso pulls up only additional papers (not already associated)?
 +
** 3) Could populate WB page with connections made through a Textpresso API call (could cache results? maybe, but might as well choose 1st option?)
 +
* Transgene pipeline:
 +
** Arun wrote script, matching transgene names (using regex; Is and Si transgenes) to papers, automatically populate OA
 +
** Another script, captures Ex transgenes as well, automatically connects to construct objects
 +
** WB only displays verified papers; unverified (predicted) associations are not dumped
 +
* Could integrate author verification as part of AFP pipeline, even for older papers? Would we want to re-request AFP results for authors that have already replied in the past? Probably not
 +
* Could embed AFP predictions in WB display with link to AFP form for authors (and others?) to verify, via logged-in users? Or via a validation token sent via email?
 +
* Chris will make GitHub ticket to ask WB web team to add a link to Textpresso search from References widget on respective page; will require a Textpresso URL constructor
 +
* Can apply to: genes, transgenes, constructs, strains, alleles, AFP-vetted entities

SObA comparison graphs

  1. What terms (nodes) are annotated to gene 1 and what terms to gene 2
  2. For a given term, what is the relative number of annotations between gene 1 and gene 2.
  3. For a given node, what is the relative number of annotations each gene has to the total annotations of that gene.
  • # 3 is actually what we applied to size the nodes in the single-gene version of SObA. Thus, not surprisingly, I think it is important.
  • Generally people like Prototype 2 as a default view; we could possibly have a toggle to see the other view
  • In either case users need a good legend and/or documentation
  • Jae, it would be good if a user could specifically highlight nodes specific to each gene and gray-out or de-emphasize the common nodes

Germ line discussion

  • Currently, the anatomy ontology has "germ line" as a type of "Cell" and a type of "Tissue", and "germ cell" as a type of "germ line"
  • Chris would like to (1) remove "germ line" from under "Cell" and leave it under "Tissue" and (2) move "germ cell" out from under "germ line" and place directly under "Cell"

Script to remove blank entries from Postgres

  • Chris stumbled across several entries in the OA that were blank (empty strings) or consisted of only whitespace, some of which were causing errors upon upload to ACEDB
  • Juancarlos has written a script to look for all such entries; 66 tables have them on sandbox (likely same on live OA)
  • Does anyone object to removing these entries throughout Postgres?
  • Juancarlos will remove all the empty fields identified by his script

Textpresso derived paper connections

  • For example for strains and constructs, maybe anatomy terms?
  • May want to flag Textpresso predictions (as opposed to manually connected)
  • Couple of options:
    • 1) At time of build, populate the papers (in ACEDB/Datomic) into a 'Putative_reference' tag and display in a distinct 'Putative references' widget
    • 2) Not part of database build, but make associations live (using RESTful API to link out to Textpresso and submit search with URL) using Textpresso with links to Textpresso and Textpresso results, giving users chance to see context of matches in sentences at the Textpresso site
