[[WormBase-Caltech_Weekly_Calls_March_2022|March]]

* 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
 
* 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

 +
* We need to know how best to move forward with ?Reference and ?Person evidence in the context of data exchange between WB and the Alliance

** If not, when we have persons later will the data be reconnected to Person objects ?
 +
* Where does data come from, which we call Person_evidence ?  Some forms ?  Direct emails ?  Other sources ? 
 +
* For author curation/verification, what evidence do we want to use?
 +
* Can we create Paper objects for the actual emails or other forms of communication (figure out details of when and what requirements), but keep Person_evidence for form submissions ?
 +
* How much will it muddy things to create Paper objects for emails, e.g. how will it affect NLP downstream, do we need PDFs ?
 +
* If we create personal communication References at Alliance only do we also want them as WBPapers, or will we just keep ?Person evidence at WB?
 +
* Are we okay with conflating Person data and Paper data in Reference at the Alliance.  That is, duplicating the same data as a Person and as a Reference.

Subcellular localization field

  • WB has 2 separate free text fields to capture anatomical and subcellular localization statements but obviously the boundaries are fuzzy, see the example below where the statement belongs to both- there are many examples.

“miR-228 is expressed in the germline and preferentially localizes to the nuclear periphery.”

  • Other MODs do not make such distinction.
  • Daniela is asking the group advice to see if there is any objection in merging the 2 fields and slot the paragraph descriptions in the ExpressionExperimentStatement in LinkML.
  • Decision: Keep just one field that will take care of both anatomical expression and subcellular localization
ExpressionExperimentStatement:

    is_a: EntityStatement

    description: >-

      Free-text describing some aspect(s) of a gene's expression, particularly

      nuanced information that is not readily captured in annotations.

      This statement's scope is limited to the associated ExpressionExperiment.
