=== 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]
 
* [http://wobr1.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/soba_multi.cgi?action=Gene+Pair+to+SObA+Graph Prototype 2]
 
** [http://wobr1.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?
 
# 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
 
  
=== Germ line discussion ===
+
=== WS275 Citace upload ===
* 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"
+
* Maybe Nov 22 upload to Hinxton
* 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"
+
* CIT curators upload to Spica on Tues Nov 19
** [https://github.com/obophenotype/c-elegans-gross-anatomy-ontology/pull/23 Made pull request]
 
* 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)
 
  
=== Script to remove blank entries from Postgres ===
+
=== ?Genotype class ===
* 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
+
* [https://docs.google.com/document/d/19hP9r6BpPW3FSAeC_67FNyNq58NGp4eaXBT42Ch3gDE/edit?usp=sharing Working data model document]
* Juancarlos has written a script to look for all such entries; 66 tables have them on sandbox (likely same on live OA)
+
* Several classes have a "Genotype" tag with text entry
* Does anyone object to removing these entries throughout Postgres?
+
** Strain
* Juancarlos will remove all the empty fields identified by his script

** 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)]"
 +

 +
** Referring to RNAi, like "Pglr-1::wrm-1(RNAi)" or "Phsp-6::gfp; phb-1(RNAi)"

=== Textpresso derived paper connections ===
+
=== Alliance general ===
* For example for strains and constructs, maybe anatomy terms?
+
* Alliance needs a curation database
* May want to flag Textpresso predictions (as opposed to manually connected)
+
** A curation working group was proposed
* Couple of options:
+
** What needs to happen to get this going?
** 1) At time of build, populate the papers (in ACEDB/Datomic) into a 'Putative_reference' tag and display in a distinct 'Putative references' widget
+
** Would include text mining tools/resources
** 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
+
** Would be good to have something like the curation status form
*** A link to Textpresso could be done regardless of other approaches; low-hanging fruit?
+
** MODs likely have their own special requirements, but there should probably be at least a common minimal set of features
*** Do a diff so that Textpresso pulls up only additional papers (not already associated)?
+
** Variant sequence curation could be a good first start (if all MODs handle their own variant sequence curation) as a common data type
** 3) Could populate WB page with connections made through a Textpresso API call (could cache results? maybe, but might as well choose 1st option?)
+
* Micropubs pushing data submission forms; might as well house them within the Alliance
* Transgene pipeline:
+
* Would be good to have a common (or individually relevant) AFP form(s) for all Alliance members
** Arun wrote script, matching transgene names (using regex; Is and Si transgenes) to papers, automatically populate OA
+
** Maybe MOD curators can manage configuration files to indicate what is relevant for their species
** Another script, captures Ex transgenes as well, automatically connects to construct objects
+
** First priority is to focus on automatically recognizable entities/features from papers
** 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

+
=== Textpresso: merging main docs and supps? ===
* Flights: has everyone already booked? No, not yet
+
* Currently, Textpresso searches in paper main documents and all individual supplemental documents separately
* Any coordination of flights from Pasadena/LA?
+
* This results in possibly getting many results for the same publication, each scored and displayed separately
** Ranjana and Valerio got a direct flight from Burbank to Boston on Sunday for premeetings
+
* 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)
=== SObA Comparison Tool ===
 
* http://wobr2.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/soba_multi.cgi?action=Gene+Pair+to+SObA+Graph
 
* Prototype discussed last week, updated with feedback from prior discussions
 
* Would this be a stand-alone tool discoverable under the Tools menu?
 
** Possibly; could be a gene page widget, but may be out of place
 
** Stand-alone tool probably makes more sense

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)
