[[WormBase-Caltech_Weekly_Calls_January_2020|January]]
  
=== Phenotype Curation Requests ===
 
* 1,229 emails sent Dec 3-6, 2019
 
* Received 194 annotations from 40 papers and from 37 distinct community curators
 
** 37 papers requested, 3 additional papers annotated
 
** 104 Phenotype OA annotations (from 27 papers; 25 distinct curators)
 
** 90 RNAi OA annotations (from 20 papers; 19 distinct curators)
 
* 43 bounced emails
 
** 2 resent to new addresses
 
** 5 have backup email addresses (also sent)
 
  
=== Worm Area Meetings ===
+
== February 6, 2020 ==
* Chris has (re)requested slots for WormBase for the Worcester Area Worm Meeting and the Boston Area Worm Meeting
 
* Will update group if/when a slot is assigned (probably not until Fall 2020 at the earliest)
 
  
=== Reference widget Textpresso linkouts ===
+
=== Worcester Area Worm Meeting talk ===
* Now live on WormBase, WS274
+
* Confirmed for December 2020 or February 2021
* [https://github.com/WormBase/website/issues/7347 GitHub ticket]
 
* Applies to the following classes: genes, strains, variations, transgenes, constructs, anatomy terms, clones, life stages, rearrangements, molecules, processes
 
* Gene example: https://wormbase.org/species/c_elegans/gene/WBGene00022861#0d--10
 
* Strain example: https://wormbase.org/species/c_elegans/strain/WBStrain00004309#05--10
 
* Variation example: https://wormbase.org/species/c_elegans/variation/WBVar00248884#08--10
 
* Transgene example: https://wormbase.org/species/all/transgene/WBTransgene00004654#04--10
 
** Known issue: searching on synonyms in addition to public name; Sibyl will fix
 
* Construct example: https://wormbase.org/species/all/construct/WBCnstr00023113#03--10
 
** Known issue: not working now; need to only search on public name when available, not on summary; Sibyl will fix
 
* Anatomy term example: https://wormbase.org/species/all/anatomy_term/WBbt:0005772#05--10
 
** Known challenge: "Psub1" will essentially never match the intended target and "P1" may find the embryonic cell or the postembryonic cell
 
* Clone example: https://wormbase.org/species/c_elegans/clone/W02C12#03--10
 
* Life stage example: https://wormbase.org/species/all/life_stage/WBls:0000038#03--10
 
** Known challenge: "L4 larva Ce" will never match; "L4 larva" maybe; but "L4" alone will not unless a synonym
 
* Rearrangement example: https://wormbase.org/species/all/rearrangement/sDp3#03--10
 
* Molecule example: https://wormbase.org/resources/molecule/WBMol:00003650#03--10
 
* Process examples:
 
** https://wormbase.org/resources/wbprocess/WBbiopr:00000001#09--10
 
** https://wormbase.org/resources/wbprocess/WBbiopr:00000079#09--10
 
* Michael has improved phrase search and combined supplemental documents with main paper documents; should roll out soon
 
  
=== WS276 Citace upload ===
+
=== Alaska software ===
* Hinxton upload Jan 31, 2020
+
* Code developed and maintained by Joseph, but not long term solution
* Citace upload on Tuesday, Jan 28, 2020
+
* Raymond and Eduardo talked about taking it over
 +
* Why have a web application vs. a command-line application?
 +
** Wanted to make it easy, but also to capture meta data for WB
 +
* Should/will find out from Joseph about how hard it is to maintain the software
 +
* Maybe it could be taken over by Alliance, as RNA-Seq/Microarray meta data are getting harmonized
 +
* Expression working group working with Brian Oliver to have GEO take in more structured meta data
 +
* Array Express tried requiring more structured meta data, but authors stopped submitting
 +
* May be possible to build a form that collects meta data while simultaneously submitting to GEO in parallel
  
=== Author First Pass paper ===
 
* AFP resent to Database
 
* Automated descriptions about to be sent
 
* SObA, write for micropub? One micropub on SObA and another on comparative SObA
 
  
=== Noctua/GO-CAM ===
+
== February 13, 2020 ==
* New version of the Noctua form released next week
 
* Imports from WormBase?
 
** Big push in coming months will be to pull in all manual annotations from WB into Noctua (on track)
 
** Need to work on annotation history on back end
 
** May have face-to-face meeting in Pasadena
 
  
=== Variation curation ===
+
=== Alliance Literature Group ===
* Have a backlog; Paul D is assigned but has been overwhelmed
+
* Held first meeting on Monday, February 10th
* Have asserted this as a priority
+
* Regular meetings will be on Tuesdays at 10am/1pm/6pm
* We have the allele-sequence form; where does it go? Hinxton
+
* Representatives from each group will give a brief overview of their literature pipelines before the group gets into details about deliverables
* Need to get allele/variation data in an Alliance-submission friendly form and pull it into the Alliance
+
* Question about centralized paper repository; group needs guidance from Alliance PIs on how to proceed
* Need to integrate curation with the Variant Effect Predictor (VEP) pipeline
 
  
=== Topic meetings ===
+
=== ?Genotype class model ===
* Asia (Taipei) meeting, Paul S going
+
* [https://docs.google.com/document/d/19hP9r6BpPW3FSAeC_67FNyNq58NGp4eaXBT42Ch3gDE/edit?pli=1#bookmark=id.7r3e8pg19rd8 Proposal]
* Aging meeting, Wen could go? (Wen: I can ask if they provide a timeslot for oral presentation.)
+
* Can aim to implement for WS277 but may have to wait until WS278
* TAGC in April, Chris going
 
  
 +
=== Genotype OA ===
 +
* Will put documentation [[Genotype|here]]
  
== January 16, 2020 ==
+
=== WB All-Hands Meeting ===
 +
* [https://doodle.com/poll/7f65p4ba6d88ztzt Doodle poll]
 +
* Any thoughts at this point?  Still need to discuss with Hinxton, Toronto.
  
=== Variation names ===
 
* Daniela entered a new allele name (tkTi1) in the temporary allele form CGI but it prompted an error: tkTi1 does not match 1 or 2 sets of 1-3 letters and 1-6 digits
.
 
* Daniela asked Juancarlos to modify the temporary variation ID form to allow up to 4 letters instead of 3.
 
* Form here: http://tazendra.caltech.edu/~azurebrd/cgi-bin/forms/generic.cgi?action=TempVariationObo
 
* From the nomenclature guidelines: Newly generated Transposon insertions, especially those located in apparently intergenic regions, may also be given Ti (transposon insertion) names. These consist of the designation identifying the laboratory of origin, the two letters Ti, and a number, all italicized. Example: eTi13 is an insertion of a Mos transposon into an intergenic region on LGIII.
 
  
=== Webinars ===
+
== February 20, 2020 ==
* During an AFP call we discussed the possibility to have webinars for authors to guide them through the form.
+
 
* Is having a webinar series something WB is interested in doing?
+
=== Genotype ===
** we will start with an AFP/micropub webinar and will take it from there based on interest and attendance
+
* We will equate superficially similar/identical genotypes for now
 +
* What if labs sequence strains later and find out more?
 +
* Labs will have to report strains and their sequence and we back-curate accordingly
 +
 
 +
=== VC2010 assembly genes ===
 +
* WormMine now returning double the gene count for C. elegans genes because of incorporation of newest VC2010 assembly
 +
* How to best handle these "extra" genes?
 +
* We could make different species entries that specify the assembly version
