[[WormBase-Caltech_Weekly_Calls_July_2020|July]]
* 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_August_2020|August]]
* 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

** Author First Pass
 
** Author First Pass
** Micropublication
+
** Automated Gene Descriptions
 +
** Community Curation
 +
** WB Query Tools
 +

 +
 
 +
 
 +
== September 10, 2020 ==
 +
 
 +
=== GO GAF Files ===
 +
* WS278 GO GAF is using the new 2.2 file format
 +
* [https://github.com/geneontology/geneontology.github.io/blob/issue-go-annotation-2917-gaf-2_2-doc/_docs/go-annotation-file-gaf-format-22.md Specifications]
 +
* GO will not be emitting GAF 2.2 until the end of the year (will try to get a fixed date)
 +
* Implications for gene descriptions, but what about other tools, applications at WB?
 +
* Some errors in the current WS278 GAF, but will get fixed soon
 +
** Impacts gene descriptions for WS278, so using WS277 for now; will be OK once source GAF is fixed
 +
 
 +
===Disease files on FTP===
 +
*No changes for WS278 FTP files, except an extra custom file that Hinxton is producing mostly for gene descriptions so that we don't get the wrong human diseases via poor orthology calls (see GitHub issue https://github.com/WormBase/website/issues/7839)
 +
*Will be some consolidation of disease data possibly for WS279 FTP files, implications for downstream tools--gene descriptions, WOBR, ??
 +
 
 +
=== WormBase talk at Worcester Area Worm Meeting ===
 +
* Chris set to give talk on December 1st, 2020, via Zoom, 4pm (or 4:30pm) EST / 1pm Pacific
 +
* 30 minute slot; complementary to BAWM talk?
 +
* WormBase members can attend
 +
 
 +
=== WormBase talk at Boston Area Worm Meeting ===
 +
* https://www.umassmed.edu/ambroslab/meetings/bawm/
 +
* Chris will give a talk September 23rd (< 2 weeks), 6pm Eastern, 3pm Pacific (probably first speaker but not sure)
 +
* WormBase members can attend; Zoom link will be sent next Monday
 +
 
 +
=== Worm Anatomy Ontology Fixes ===
 +
* Raymond working on addressing warnings and errors (missing definitions, duplicate labels, duplicate definitions)
 +
* Assessing the best way to address them
 +
* Would be good to be able to automate some edits; options:
 +
** Use OWL API (need someone proficient in coding with OWL API)
 +
** Convert to OBO, programmatically edit, convert back to OWL?
 +
** Use Cellfie plugin for Protege?
 +
** Should discuss with Nico once we have a sense as to what changes need to be made
 +
 
 +
=== Dead Variations in Postgres ===
 +
* Currently pulling in variations/alleles from Postgres to populate "allele" and "genetic perturbation" categories in Textpresso
 +
* Noticed that many transgene names were being included, which can result in false positives for the categories
 +
* Looking at Postgres table "obo_data_variation", there are ~100,000 entries, ~40,000 with status "Dead" and ~60,000 with status "Live"
 +
* Trying to determine the history of the "Dead" variations, where most of the transgene names are coming from
 +
* May still want to include "Dead" variations/alleles in Textpresso category for historical reasons
 +
* We could use pattern matching to filter out transgene names
 +
* Possible to search C. elegans corpus for all "real" allele public names in the "Dead" set to see if they should still be included in categories
 +
 
 +
=== WS279 Citace Upload ===
 +
* Local Caltech upload to Spica, Tuesday September 22, 10am Pacific
 +
 
 +
 
 +
== September 17, 2020 ==
 +
 
 +
=== Species errors in CITace ===
 +
* Wen is reviewing species coming from CIT and will send individual curators lists of species that need correction
  
=== SGD SAB ===
+
=== Webinars ===
* Paul attended
+
* We could perform a general WormBase webinar to cover all of WormBase, maybe one hour long
* Alliance publicity was discussed
+
* Allow 20-30 minutes for discussion? Can allow interruptions but plan for one hour
* SAB likes the Alliance orthology features
+
* Follow up with more specific webinars in following months: JBrowse, WormMine, Micropublication, AFP, Textpresso Central, Ontology browser & Enrichment tools, SPELL, ParaSite BioMart
* Working on topics: displaying papers and data
+
* Chris and Wen can discuss how to setup
* Pathways: discussion about best approach
+
* Should we have people register? Maybe
* Metabolic engineering
+
* AFP probably doesn't need an hour; maybe split an hour across micropublications and AFP?
* 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 ===
+
=== Transcription factors and regulatory networks ===
* Progress being made within the Alliance to update the automated concise gene descriptions
+
* Had another question about TFs, asking for common TFs for a list of genes
* We will still accept manually written descriptions and display them in parallel with automated descriptions
+
* An issue is that the TF binding data we have is in disparate forms, trying to reconcile
 +
* We have a ?Transcription_factor class; it would be good to update and integrate with other related data types
  
=== Micropublications ===
+
=== Alzheimer's disease portal ===
* If people are requesting manually written gene descriptions, they could submit a microreview
+
* Funding has been awarded for Alzheimer's research
* Concern was expressed about how to handle a really high throughput of submissions:
+
* Ranjana: should the disease working group consider more about an Alliance Alzheimer's disease portal?
** Daniela: Working towards automating as much of the processing pipeline as possible
+
* Paul S: Alliance SAB tomorrow; we'll see what the SAB says
** Raymond: The throughput will be handled appropriately depending on demand; priority scheme will help
+
* Can look at other resources like RGD disease portals and Reactome disease-related pathway models
** Not getting lots of submissions yet, probably won't be inundated in the near future
+
* Ruth Lovering is doing some work in this regard
** 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
 
* Karen: Micropublications team will reach out to curators to help build submission forms for respective data types
 
  
=== Undiagnosed Disease Network data ===
+
=== GO meeting ===
* Andy Golden will meet with Ranjana and Chris at IWM to discuss
+
* All are welcome to attend
* Andy asked about protocol pages at WormBase?
+
* Will discuss GAF format changes, etc.
* Paul: Bioprotocols and Protocols IO
+
* Ranjana: should she and Valerio attend to learn about GO changes that affect the gene descriptions pipeline?
* Maybe we could interface with those existing resources to link to relevant protocols from WormBase (and WormBook)
+
** Kimberly: there could be a particular breakout group that Ranjana and Valerio could attend to discuss
  
==June 27th, 2019==
+
=== New GAF 2.2 file ===
===IWM 2019===
+
* Kimberly has reviewed and sent feedback to Michael P
*Impressions, analysis, feedback from Users etc etc
+
* Valerio would like to stay in the loop to test the new files
  
===Giving disease model annotations a stable identifier===
+
=== Data mining tool comparison sheet ===
*Currently disease model annotations get a temporary ID at the time of dump, eg.
+
* https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vBTDBOKfXn9GcdpF1bXI62VEJ7hwyz2hOyAZcoV1_ng/edit?usp=sharing
 +
* Needs an update
 +
* Could we make this available to users? A link in the Tools menu?
 +
* Is this useful to users? Would they understand it? Maybe be better as a curator resource
 +
* Could this be micropublished?
 +
** Possible; may want to consider a series of publications with videos of webinars, etc.
