===WS279 GAF 2.0 and disease files===
 +
*Valerio and Ranjana still working with the GAF 2.0 files to generate gene descriptions
 +
*Valerio and Ranjana will probably have a meeting with Magdalena to sort out the FTP file issues for gene descriptions
 +
*Will let Raymond know if the disease GAFs are okay after they test these for gene descriptions
 +
*Raymond needs the GAFs for WoBR
 +
 
 +
===Experimenting with addeding new citace data to the current WS release ===
 +
*Wen will take the newest expression, physical interaction, and paper class from postgres, add them to WS279 to create a "WS279.1" version of ACeDB database. Then compare WS279.1 to WS279 by comparing the SimpleMine results generated from these two versions of ACeDB. The goal is to explore the possibility of notifying users some of the new curation since the data freeze for the WS build.
 +
 
 +
===MicroPub user webinar on Nov 9th===
 +
*Ranjana and Kimberly have conflicts--Alliance call and GO call. Anyway microPub team is running the show and they have other WormBasers to help as well.
 +
 
 +
===WS280 deadlines===
 +
*Caltech files due for citace: Dec 15th, 2020
 +
 
 +
 
 +
==Nov 12th, 2020==
 +
=== Cynthia Kenyon tool ===
 +
* developed a new tool for the worm, complete with tutorials, for analyzing gene expression data using Gene Module analysis.
 +
* tool at http://genemodules.org
 +
* add link outs from the gene expression widget or add in general WB tools?
 +
* if we want to incorporate we need to have it updated.
 +
* are they maintaining it?
 +
* there's no RNAseq, can be outdated
 +
* maybe good to add a blog post
 +
 
 +
=== Graphical curation tool update===
 +
* We will show a live demo on the current state of the graphical curation tool
 +
 
 +
=== Curating to human genes in ACEDB ===
 +
* Karen requested option to curate constructs with human genes
 +
* Would we need to change our human genes in ACEDB? For example, migrate from Ensembl IDs to HGNC IDs as primary keys?
 +
* Will discuss on next site-wide call
  
=== Phenotype Curation Requests ===
+
=== GAF (and GAF-like) file headers ===
* 1,229 emails sent Dec 3-6, 2019
+
* GO GAF files (on FTP, WS279) for WormBase now in 2.2 format with header like
* Received 194 annotations from 40 papers and from 37 distinct community curators
+
!gaf-version: 2.2
** 37 papers requested, 3 additional papers annotated
+
!generated-by: WormBase
** 104 Phenotype OA annotations (from 27 papers; 25 distinct curators)
+
!date-generated: 2020-10-30
** 90 RNAi OA annotations (from 20 papers; 19 distinct curators)
+
! WB annotations 00015014
* 43 bounced emails
+
* For files that can migrate to 2.2 format (e.g. always require column 4 qualifier) we could adopt a similar header
** 2 resent to new addresses
+
* For other files (that cannot always have a qualifier in column 4), we could stick to 2.0 format with a header like:
** 5 have backup email addresses (also sent)
+
!gaf-version: 2.0
 +
!generated-by: WormBase
 +
!date-generated: 2020-10-30
 +
* Current need is to include information about format specification, possibly in addition to other extra header content.
 +
* New proposed headers:
 +
!project-URL: https://wormbase.org
 +
!specification-URL: https://github.com/geneontology/geneontology.github.io/blob/issue-go-annotation-2917-gaf-2_2-doc/_docs/go-annotation-file-gaf-format-22.md
 +
OR
 +
!specification-URL: https://wiki.wormbase.org/index.php/WormBase_gene_association_file
 +
!project-release: WS279
 +
* Could repurpose the Wiki page: https://wiki.wormbase.org/index.php/WormBase_gene_association_file from internal docs only to include user guide info, including how our GAF-like files deviate in format from standard GAF
  
=== Worm Area Meetings ===
 
* 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 ===
+
== Nov 19, 2020 ==
* Now live on WormBase, WS274
 
* [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

* Transgene example: https://wormbase.org/species/all/transgene/WBTransgene00004654#04--10

* 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

GAF (and GAF-like) file headers

  • GO GAF files (on FTP, WS279) for WormBase now in 2.2 format with header like
!gaf-version: 2.2

! WB annotations 00015014
  • For files that can migrate to 2.2 format (e.g. always require column 4 qualifier) we could adopt a similar header
  • For other files (that cannot always have a qualifier in column 4), we could stick to 2.0 format with a header like:
