=== SObA comparison graphs ===
+
== November 7, 2019 ==
* Raymond and Juancarlos have worked on a SObA-graph based comparison tool to compare two genes for ontology-based annotations
 
* [http://wobr2.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/soba_multi.cgi?action=Gene+Pair+to+SObA+Graph Prototype 1]
 
** [http://wobr2.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/soba_multi.cgi?action=annotSummaryCytoscape&filterForLcaFlag=1&filterLongestFlag=1&showControlsFlag=0&datatype=phenotype&geneOneValue=lin-3%20(Caenorhabditis%20elegans,%20WB:WBGene00002992,%20-,%20F36H1.4)&autocompleteValue=let-23%20(Caenorhabditis%20elegans,%20WB:WBGene00002299,%20-,%20ZK1067.1 Example comparison between lin-3 and let-23]

* What information does a user most care about?
+
=== WS275 Citace upload ===
# What terms (nodes) are annotated to gene 1 and what terms to gene 2
+
* Maybe Nov 22 upload to Hinxton
# For a given term, what is the relative number of annotations between gene 1 and gene 2.
+
* CIT curators upload to Spica on Tues Nov 19
# 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.
 
  
=== Germ line discussion ===
+
=== ?Genotype class ===
* 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"
+
* [https://docs.google.com/document/d/19hP9r6BpPW3FSAeC_67FNyNq58NGp4eaXBT42Ch3gDE/edit?usp=sharing Working data model document]
* 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"
+
* Several classes have a "Genotype" tag with text entry
** [https://github.com/obophenotype/c-elegans-gross-anatomy-ontology/pull/23 Made pull request]
+
** Strain
 +
** 2_point_data
 +
** Pos_neg_data
 +
** Multi_pt_data
 +
** RNAi
 +
** Phenotype_info
 +
** Mass_spec_experiment (no data as of WS273)
 +
** Condition
 +
* Collecting all genotype text entries yields ~33,000 unique entries, with many different forms:
 +
** Species entries, like "Acrobeloides butschlii wild isolate" or "C. briggsae"
 +
** Strain entries, like "BA17[fem-1(hc-17)]" or "BB21" or "BL1[pK08F4.7::K08F4.7::GFP; rol-6(+)]"
 +
** Anonymous transgenes, like "BEC-1::GFP" or "CAM-1-GFP" or "Ex[Pnpr-9::unc-103(gf)]"
 +
** Complex constructs, like "C56C10.9(gk5253[loxP + Pmyo-2::GFP::unc-54 3' UTR + Prps-27::neoR::unc-54 3' UTR + loxP]) II"
 +
** Text descriptions, like "Control" or "WT" or "Control worms fed on HT115 containing the L4440 vector without insert" or "N.A."
 +
** Bacterial genotypes, like "E. coli [argA, lysA, mcrA, mcrB, IN(rrnD-rrnE)1, lambda-, rcn14::Tn10(DE3 lysogen::lavUV5 promoter -T7 polymerase]"
 +
** Including balancers, like "F26H9.8(ok2510) I/hT2 [bli-4(e937) let-?(q782) qIs48] (I;III)"
 +
** Reference to parent strain, like "Parent strain is AG359"
 +
** Referring to RNAi, like "Pglr-1::wrm-1(RNAi)" or "Phsp-6::gfp; phb-1(RNAi)"
 +
** Referring to apparent null or loss of function alleles, like "Phsp-4::GFP(zcIs4); daf-2(-)" or "ced-10(lf)"
  
=== Script to remove blank entries from Postgres ===
+
=== Gene comparison SObA ===
* 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
+
* http://wobr2.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/soba_multi.cgi?action=Gene+Pair+to+SObA+Graph
* Juancarlos has written a script to look for all such entries; 66 on sandbox (likely same on live OA)
+
 
* Does anyone object to removing these entries throughout Postgres?
+
 
 +
== November 14, 2019 ==
 +
 
 +
=== TAGC meeting ===
 +
* The Allied Genetics Conference next April (2020) in/near Washington DC
 +
* Abstract deadline is Dec 5th
 +
* Alliance has a shared booth (3 adjacent booths)
 +
* Micropublications will have a booth (Karen and Daniela will attend)
 +
* Focus will be on highlighting the Alliance
 +
* Workshop at NLM in days following TAGC about curation at scale (Kimberly attending and chairing session)
 +
 
 +
=== Alliance all hands meeting ===
 +
* Lightning talk topics?
 +
** Single cell RNA Seq (Eduardo)
 +
** SimpleMine? (Wen)
 +
** SObA? (Raymond); still working on multi-species SObA
 +
** Phenotype community curation?
 +
** Micropublications?
 +
** AFP?
 +
 
 +
=== Alliance general ===
 +
* Alliance needs a curation database
 +
** A curation working group was proposed
 +
** What needs to happen to get this going?
 +
** Would include text mining tools/resources
 +
** Would be good to have something like the curation status form
 +
** MODs likely have their own special requirements, but there should probably be at least a common minimal set of features
 +
** Variant sequence curation could be a good first start (if all MODs handle their own variant sequence curation) as a common data type
 +
* Micropubs pushing data submission forms; might as well house them within the Alliance
 +
* Would be good to have a common (or individually relevant) AFP form(s) for all Alliance members
 +
** Maybe MOD curators can manage configuration files to indicate what is relevant for their species
 +
** First priority is to focus on automatically recognizable entities/features from papers

=== Textpresso: merging main docs and supps? ===
 +
* Currently, Textpresso searches in paper main documents and all individual supplemental documents separately
 +
* This results in possibly getting many results for the same publication, each scored and displayed separately
 +
* Do we want Texptpresso to search on a single, consolidated file containing the main document of a paper AND the supplementals?
 +
* Currently, the scoring algorithm is often scoring supplemental documents higher than main papers, presumably due to a weighting of documents in which there is a higher percentage of sentences with matches to the keyword(s)
 +
* This cannot be done completely manually; agreed, this would have to be largely (completely?) automated
 +
* Would be good to check how PMC/Europe PMC handles articles in which main docs and supps are consolidated into a single PDF already (in addition to individual files)
 +
* Detecting duplicated sentences would be useful, but may be quite a thorny issue (need to research)
 +
* Chris will update GitHub ticket to ask Sibyl to NOT search on C. elegans supplementals, for now, and only search on main documents
 +
 
 +
=== Europe PMC: biocuration landscape analysis ===
 +
* Dayane Araújo has asked that a curator (Chris currently) attend a conference call (next Monday, Nov 25) hosted by Europe PMC about assessing biocuration across databases
 +
* Chris has asked for details but has so far not received anything specific
 +
* Should we attend? Yes, at least to listen. If complex questions come up, we can just tell them we'll look it up
 +
* Would be great if there were aggregated references for particular datasets so that users of data and analyses could be given all references to properly cite in their own article

Textpresso: merging main docs and supps?

  • Currently, Textpresso searches in paper main documents and all individual supplemental documents separately
  • This results in possibly getting many results for the same publication, each scored and displayed separately

Europe PMC: biocuration landscape analysis

  • Dayane Araújo has asked that a curator (Chris currently) attend a conference call (next Monday, Nov 25) hosted by Europe PMC about assessing biocuration across databases
  • Chris has asked for details but has so far not received anything specific
  • Should we attend? Yes, at least to listen. If complex questions come up, we can just tell them we'll look it up
