=== Progress Report ===
 +
* Review Google Doc from Paul to make sure you're latest updates are there
 +
* Doc here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1f3ettnkvwoKKiaAA4TSrpSQPEF7FmVVn6u2UdflA_So/edit?usp=sharing
  
 +
===Genotype class===
 +
*Have 27 genotypes in the genotype OA, dumper and test .ace file ready
 +
*Will test ace file in citace as soon as we get the new models file, can also send to Paul D., in advance to test
 +
*Disease OA annotations now converted to the newly created genotypes where needed
 +
*Need to work on disease dumper changes next
  
== June 6, 2019 ==
+
=== What genes should be linked to genotypes? ===
 +
* We have a "Gene" tag in the ?Genotype model for capturing relevant genes
 +
* What should we consider a "relevant gene"?
 +
* We plan to populate the "Gene" tag with genes identified by the variation-to-gene mapping pipeline
 +
* For transgenes, what genes should be extracted as "relevant"? Genes whose promoters are cloned? Genes that are expressed? Genes whose 3'UTR's are cloned? Wild type rescue genes used as a marker/selection tool, e.g. "unc-119(+)"?
 +
* For rearrangements, consider relevant any genes "inside" the rearrangement?
 +
* For now, we will omit any genes from transgenes or rearrangements from being dumped into the "Gene" tag
 +
* In the future, we may want to consider genes that have been specifically annotated as having some functional consequence and informs that the gene is of functional relevance to the genotype
  
=== New SObA graphs ===
+
=== Volunteer Community Curators ===
* May put graphs within existing widgets, but don't need to rush to get that ready for IWM
+
* Have had an additional 13 people volunteer
 +
* Single one-on-one tutorial for someone in Hong Kong this past Monday
 +
* Chris will hold a tutorial today and tomorrow for everyone else
 +
* Have received many new community annotations from volunteers (and authors), validation still pending
  
=== Phenotype association file format ===
+
=== Open Publishing Festival ===
* May be best to leave the format as is
+
* Ranjana will join as a panelist
* There are problems; paper IDs keep switching columns
+
* Other MOD curators will also join
* Would need to revisit the reasoning for why we do it that way
+
* Festival calendar: https://openpublishingfest.org/calendar.html
* When will the Alliance produce a similar/replacement file? Not sure
 
  
=== Phenotype requests ===
+
=== Move to Chen building ===
* Sent out 1140 emails on May 30
+
* Scheduled for late January 2021
* 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
 
  
 +
=== First completely virtual GO meeting ===
 +
* Kimberly: went really well
 +
* Only met 4 hours per day, due to time zone differences
 +
* Had breakout sessions for focus groups
  
== June 13, 2019 ==
+
=== Alliance Literature Acquisition working group ===
 +
* Plan to come up with use cases for OntoMate and Textpresso
 +
**Ontomate link https://rgd.mcw.edu/QueryBuilder/
  
=== IWM ===
+
* Kimberly plans to draw up most common use cases for Textpresso
* Coordinating transportation of swag boxes to Pauley Pavilion
+
* Google doc for test cases: https://rgd.mcw.edu/QueryBuilder/getResult/?qFieldConditions%5B0%5D.fieldName=ontology&qFieldConditions%5B0%5D.fieldValue=Coronavirus%20infectious%20disease
* Workshop on Saturday June 22, from 1pm to 2:30pm
 
* Saturday morning micropublication breakfast 7:30 - 8:30am
 
* Workshop
 
** 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 ===
 
* Paul attended
 
* Alliance publicity was discussed
 
* SAB likes the Alliance orthology features
 
* Working on topics: displaying papers and data
 
* 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 ===
+
== May 21, 2020 ==
* 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 ===
+
=== Volunteer curators ===
* If people are requesting manually written gene descriptions, they could submit a microreview
+
* Received surge of annotations earlier this week
* Concern was expressed about how to handle a really high throughput of submissions:
+
* All tutorials done for now; all but 3 recorded
** Daniela: Working towards automating as much of the processing pipeline as possible
+
* Each tutorial is ~1 hour in length
** Raymond: The throughput will be handled appropriately depending on demand; priority scheme will help
 
** Not getting lots of submissions yet, probably won't be inundated in the near future
 
** 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 ===
+
=== AFP tutorial ===
* Andy Golden will meet with Ranjana and Chris at IWM to discuss
+
* AFP group working on tutorial/webinar
* Andy asked about protocol pages at WormBase?
+
* Had someone on phenotype curation tutorial specifically asking about it (Kimberly responded)
* Paul: Bioprotocols and Protocols IO
 
* Maybe we could interface with those existing resources to link to relevant protocols from WormBase (and WormBook)
 
  
 +
=== Open Publishing Festival ===
 +
* Had micropublication session yesterday, went well
 +
* Had ~50 participants
 +
* Saved Zoom chats? Can get public ones, maybe not private ones
  
==June 27th, 2019==
 
===IWM 2019: Feedback from Users===
 
* Anatomy term synonym search
 
** User pointed out that "RnB" search returns 0 results; GitHub ticket made to index anatomy synonyms
 
* Ciliated neurons
 
** User pointed out that male ciliated neurons are missing as a subclass of term "ciliated neuron"; GitHub ticket made, easy fix
 
* Import of 22G and 26G RNAs
 
** Spoke to Julie Claycomb
 
** These are short RNAs transcribed by RNA-dependent RNA Polymerase (RdRP) off of mRNA molecules
 
** Should these be instantiated as gene objects in WormBase? Julie argues that these are not genes
 
*** Should these just be transcript objects? Would they be linked to a gene? Or maybe also to any transcripts from which they could be derived?
 
** Many map uniquely to the genome, but some map in multiple locations
 
** Associated data for now would likely just be protein-RNA interactions (Argonaute-RNA interactions)
 
*** May eventually include phenotype and/or gene ontology (biological process) annotations
 
* Ranjana & Chris spoke with Andy Golden
 
** Andy and his lab will submit phenotype and disease data as they become available (likely pre-publication); we will likely point to a consortium as source until paper is published
 
** There is still a strong need for cross-species variant mapping/visualization
 
* miRNA binding sites
 
** User asked at workshop and at booth; can we show miRNA binding sites in JBrowse? We would need to collect the data
 
** There are many sources of miRNA-target interactions, some experimental, most predicted
 
*** Chris compiled [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19-txXrGi-ROFuByyLnQYvWbKl3o12KZON56qto3MN6g/edit?usp=sharing list of interaction databases] for Alliance interactions working group
 
* Ontology aware diffs of annotations (gene1 expression vs. gene2 expression)
 
* Promoter sequence in experimental constructs
 
* Workshop went well
 
** Next time, maybe have people bring laptops and follow along; be more interactive
 
** We could do webinars, for WormMine for example, allow people to work along with the presentation
 
*** Do other MODs/groups do webinars? How have they been? Useful?
 
** Competing with other workshops during the IWM
 
** Can focus on new, less-used features for webinars, tutorial videos
 
* Hawaiian genome in JBrowse
 
* Had internet stability issues at UCLA; can we get a local, dedicated WiFi?
 
* Next meeting (2021) will likely be in Europe (Cambridge UK?)
 
* User at cGal workshop asked about tissue-specific promoters/transgenes
 
** Have ~30 drivers and ~30 effectors; will WB take them in unpublished?
 
  
=== TAGC meeting ===
+
== May 28, 2020 ==
* Next April (2020)
 
* Alliance representation needed
 
  
===Giving disease model annotations a stable identifier===
+
=== Wormicloud ===
*Currently disease model annotations get a temporary ID at the time of dump,  
+
* Introducing a new tool for a graphical summary of queried papers, Please take a look and leave any comments on it. (http://textpressocentral.org:5010/)

*Would like to institute stable identifiers across releases, so the plan is to call these objects, 'WBDisease_annotation:<number>', so then the above identifier would become 'WBDisease_annotation:00000004', or 'WBDiseaseannot:00000004' or 'WBDiseaseAnnot:00000004'
 
*ID convention--is underscore allowed?
 
*Is 'WBDisease_annotation:00000004' too long for acedb?
 
* Need to ask Kevin, Hinxton; what are the other implications for maintaining and generating persistent, unique IDs
 
  
=== Anatomy ontology issues ===

=== Genes to Physical Map ===
* Currently, "intestinal muscle" is considered "part of" intestine
+
* https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1e83jv94-eO_VQ7kKdJ36TgDDb4WRkFhM?usp=sharing
** User asked for intestinally expressed genes; using WOBr would also retrieve genes in intestinal muscle
+
To run: Runtime->Run All. Change the list of gene names and run again.
** David Hall confirmed that instestinal muscle cells are not part of intestine
 
** Maybe we can change to: "intestinal muscle" part_of "alimentary system"
 
* Currently, "amphid process" is considered "part of" each type of amphid neuron like AWC, AFD, etc.
 
** Problem is that users looking in WOBr for AWC-expressed genes will be given genes expressed in ANY amphid process regardless of which cell
 
** Propose to change to: "amphid process" part_of "amphid neuron" only
