===How the "duplicate" function works in OAs with respect to object IDs (Ranjana and Juancarlos)===
 +
*A word of caution: when you duplicate a row, for those OAs with Object IDs (eg., WBGenotype00000014) note that the object ID gets duplicated as well and does not advance to the next ID like the PGID does
 +
*If you do use the "duplicate" function, remember to manually change the Object ID
 +
* We can implement checks to make sure distinct annotations/objects don't share the same ID
  
== March 5, 2020 ==
+
=== GAF Wiki and headers ===
 +
* Any more comments about the Wiki page and the proposal? https://wiki.wormbase.org/index.php/WormBase_gene_association_file
  
=== WormBase curation ===
+
=== Missing references in expression GAFs ===
* Tim Schedl: WB needs to do more curation for phenotype and variation
+
* ~300 missing from anatomy association file and ~45 missing from development association file
* Doing community curation, but not fast enough
+
* Daniela looking into missing refs; many are personal communications or very old papers
* Would like to work on more automation; e.g. having Textpresso return all sentences mentioning an allele in papers that are predicted to have phenotype data
+
* Will change ?Expr_pattern model to possibly remove ?Author reference and add in a ?Person reference instead
 +
** 399 objects in WS279 reference an author; Daniela will take a look
 +
* Would be good to have some reference for those objects in the GAF file on the FTP site; could use WBPerson when ready
  
=== Alaksa ===
 
* Joesph may be able to meet with Raymond
 
* How can the tool be maintained? If it can't it needs to be pulled
 
  
=== Single cell expression tool ===
+
== Feb 11th, 2021 ==
* Tool is here: http://de.wormcells.com/
+
=== Alliance Literature Paper Tags ===
* What do we need to consider for pulling into WormBase?
+
*What do we definitely want to transfer to the Alliance?
* Where does the data sit and how does the tool access it? Can we integrate the data more into WormBase (e.g. local curation databases)?  
+
*Alliance literature group [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1d3Y73x1BFiARkbxrvPPX2tCh5rFeBQRoBMHOcaXmijA/edit#gid=1866989939 spreadsheet]
** Would want it to be in sync with WormBase releases
+
*Current flags vs legacy flags
** May not need to reprocess with every release with current (small-ish) data set
+
*Can we map everything to the proposed hierarchy or do we need to add some more classes?
* Fully integrated tool versus an embedded tool?
+
*Kimberly will review existing tags/flags to sort out what we know we need and what is questionable
  
=== Name service updates ===
+
=== Personal communications in Expr_pattern ===
* For now we will stick to the CGIs that Juancarlos has built for variations and strains
+
* 27 objects missing reference (personal communications)
* Juancarlos can discuss with Matt R. and Sibyl the possibility of integrating API requests to the Name service into a CGI form for the OA
+
** Even if we capture the WBPerson in the Person tag, how are we submitting these to Alliance? The evidence required by the expression JSON spec https://github.com/alliance-genome/agr_schemas/blob/master/ingest/expression/wildtypeExpressionModelAnnotation.json (and other specs) must be a publication, as defined by the publicationRef.json https://github.com/alliance-genome/agr_schemas/blob/master/ingest/publicationRef.json. If there's no PMID for a publication listed as evidence, a MOD ID will suffice for the "publicationId" but we have no WBPaperID created for such  objects.
 +
** One way to solve this: Daniela can go over the list and see if the initial personal communication resulted in  a publication later on. One example is Expr181 (expression of cpl-1 in hypodermis and pharynx), communicated  via email by Sarwar Hashmi in 2000, Expr450 (expression of cpl-1 in hypodermis, intestine) communicated by  Britton in 2001. The pattern was published in 2002 by Hashmi and Britton in 2002 (WBPaper00005099). Daniela can then associate WBPaper00005099 to Expr181 and Expr450.
 +
** The solution above still  does not work for all: An example is lad-2 personal communication from Oliver Hobert, 2002. Later published by Lishia Chen (2008). Removing Oliver’s personal communication will remove evidence of data provenance from the Hobert’s lab. Unless Oliver published this in a paper that was eluded from our flagging system (e.g. flagged SVM negative).
 +
** Daniela can go over the entire list and contact the authors for such cases.
 +
** Are personal communications used in other classes?
 +
** Action item: Daniela will add Persons in the person tag for such communications. Will request a model change to Hinxton. Will ask Magda to populate column 6 of the GAF file with Author data. Will add a request for the DQMs to allow Persons in the 'Evidence' in the JSON in addition to Papers
  
 +
=== Author data in Expr_pattern ===
 +
* 399 Expression objects have the author tag populated. Most of them were submitted even prior Wen started working on Expr_pattern.
 +
** out of 399 objects, we have 32 for which the authors partially match. One example is Expr60, which has Bauer as extra author in the .ace file. Bauer is not listed as author in the paper.
 +
** should we keep the author info and store it in the Person tag? Even if we do, how are we submitting these to Alliance? And should we at all? This is legacy data
 +
** Decision: we can remove the authors and add in the remarks the historic info
  
== March 12, 2020 ==
+
=== Date tag in Expr_pattern ===
 +
* The date tag seems to be  populated for objects that have authors (above) to probably capture when the submission occurred.
 +
* In addition, Date is populated for a large scale submission from Ian hope (2006-03), later published.
 +
* We can still keep this info as is for WB (currently stored in citace minus) but what are we going to do for the Alliance submission? The tag was used last time in 2006 for the Hope study but prior to this was used in  the ‘90s (1990, 1998).
 +
** We  can get rid of date, too. And pull the fo for the ones for which authors do not match
  
=== Cancelled meetings ===
+
=== Proposed WormBase metrics page ===
* Meetings are being cancelled, including Biocuration 2020. Ranjana will update our Wormbase meeting page with a note to users (done)
+
* Inspired by MGI's stats page:
* We should start doing online advertisement for micropublications with webinars
+
** http://www.informatics.jax.org/mgihome/homepages/stats/all_stats.shtml
 +
* Sibyl and Paulo working on. Prototype here: https://master.d25n59ij2csrbn.amplifyapp.com/
 +
** Current prototype is C. elegans specific
 +
* Chris is collecting ideas and queries here:
 +
** https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OeZuMRSHelVD7tGRIxEkCKOyDaBPN29wrGbNU3TGxKU/edit?usp=sharing
 +
* Could eventually be used across the Alliance
  
=== Storing invalid/avoided WBPersons and email addresses in Postgres ===
 
* Currently Chris has been maintaining ([https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FHhQk_IZIBLYkOUdVf9Kfh5zx66rkHOEVFQQ6wzT2ks/edit?usp=sharing on Google sheets]) a list of papers, people, and email addresses to omit from future WormBase outreach requests
 
* Valerio would like to add these to Postgres to keep a more central repository of them
 
* Chris would still like to be able to readily update/edit the content of those lists
 
  
* Proposed solutions: Keep the list in a flat file and have a cron job to sync the data to postgres daily or create a simple form to create/modify entries directly in postgres
+
== Feb 18th, 2021 ==
  
=== Updates on Alaska ===
+
=== CenGen data ===
 +
* How can we incorporate the CenGen data into WormBase pages? i.e. provide users info:
 +
** Per gene: what cells express this gene?
 +
** Per cell: what genes are expressed in this cell?
 +
** May be derived from Eduardo's data processing
 +
* CenGen has a weekly call: have invited Wen, Daniela, and Raymond
 +
** Too much for all three to join?
 +
* Good to establish healthy boundaries for responsibilities
 +
* Do they want to collaborate or no?
 +
* We can link to the main CenGen page; once gene-level data is available we can consume and make available
 +
* Eduardo's tool is one WormBase tool for processing and providing CenGen data; will make them aware
 +
* Ultimately this data (and its presentation) will need to get into the Alliance; may remain a WB-specific/portal feature for the near future
 +
* Alaska? Probably won't be maintained
  
Raymond and Eduardo met with Joseph and decided to have the tool running as is for now even though maintaining it can be hard
+
=== Cleaning up bounced emails to outreach@wormbase.org ===
The future plan is to move the platform to Google colab to reduce maintainance work.
+
* Many unread messages (~140) in inbox
 +
* Many of those are bounced emails from AFP pipeline and webinar announcements
 +
* If relevant people could review those bounced emails and, as appropriate, add people or email addresses to the Omit list using the Omit Form CGI (http://tazendra.caltech.edu/~postgres/cgi-bin/omit_form.cgi) that would be appreciated.
  
==Nameservice discussion==
 
*Getting a token has worked for Chris and Ranjana
 
*Karen and Daniela need to get tokens
 
  
==Noctua GO-CAM updates==
+
== Feb 25th, 2021 ==
*Noctua is a production tool available for annotations right now
 
*Create as many interconnected models and make available for curators is the ongoing goal
 
*Reactome models are in the process of being imported
 
*Real time validation messages as curation is being done, is being worked on
 
*Kimberly will send out the details for logging into Noctua and make sure all curators are on the login list
 
  
 +
===Expr_pattern clean up===
 +
* Seldom populated  tags. Can we move the associated info into remarks and get rid of the tag? This is in view of the Alliance import
 +
** Protein_description 33 objects -> Decision: Move to remarks -> Done DR 2021/02/26. Redundant info such as CPL-1 in Protein_description and CPL-1 in gene name were omitted.
