===Gene names issue in SimpleMine and other mining tools===
*Wen: Last week, Jonathan Ewbank raised the issue of gene names that may refer to multiple objects.
*this can be an issue for multiple data mining tools including WormMine, BioMart, and Gene Set Enrichment.
*Perhaps have a standalone approach to check if any gene name among a list may refer to multiple objects (users check their name lists before submitting them to any data mining tool).
*Jae: The public name issue has heterogeneous natures. That means there may be no single solution to solve all those problems.
*Gene list curation from high-throughput studies, confusing usage of public names probably less than 2% (still cannot be ignored). See examples below--
**single public name is assigned to multiple WBgene ID, Wen has a list of these genes
**overlapped or dicistronic genes, ex. mrpl-44 and F02A9.10
**overlapped or dicistronic, but has a single sequence name, examples:
    exos-4.1 and tin-9.2 (B0564.1)
    eat-18 and lev-10 (Y105E8A.7)
    cha-1 and unc-17 (ZC416.8)
**simple confusion from authors, ex. mdh-1 and mdh-2
=== WormBase HD YouTube channel has ads ===
*One of the most significant problems is a propagation to other DB and papers of  these gene name issues.
* Is there a way to turn them off? Seems like we cannot remove them entirely
*We can make a special note for each gene page, but the people using batch analysis could not catch that easily.
*Conclusion: Jae and Wen will work on a tool that lets Users "sanitize" their gene lists before submission to data mining tools.  They will also write a microPub explaining this issue to the community.
=== Form headers and footers no longer updating ===
*Please test and leave any feedback on the word cloud tool (Wormicloud), https://wormicloud.textpressolab.com/
* WS version number falls out of date; Juancarlos will manually update
*Valerio and Jae have worked on a tool that uses data in Textpresso; given a keyword, eg. "transposon", the tool generates a word cloud and word trend.
*Any keyword can generate a graph that plots trends of occurence across the years in publication abstracts.
===Noctua 2.0 form ready to use===
*Caltech summer student will try using Noctua initially for dauer (neuronal signaling) pathways
===Nightly names service updates to postgres===
*Nightly using Matt's wb-names-export.jar to get full output of genes from datomic/names service, and updating postgres based on that.
==July 16th, 2020==
===Citing ontologies and their versions===
*Came up in the context of the Alliance: It would be best practice to provide users with the list of ontologies used and their versions/date.
*If WB ontology developers could make sure their ontology file headers (WB anatomy ontology, WB life stage, etc.) conformed to obo file header specifications, then it would be easy to pull in version and date information into the Alliance.
*Some useful links (from DQM meeting minutes)
**http://obo-dashboard-test.ontodev.com/ (you can see that wbbt, wbls version metadata attribute is generating a warning
**Note: OBO-foundry may not have been updated, but good practice to check your headers, anyway.
