2020 Meetings


February 6, 2020

Worcester Area Worm Meeting talk

  • Confirmed for December 2020 or February 2021

Alaska software

  • Code developed and maintained by Joseph, but not long term solution
  • Raymond and Eduardo talked about taking it over
  • Why have a web application vs. a command-line application?
    • Wanted to make it easy, but also to capture meta data for WB
  • Should/will find out from Joseph about how hard it is to maintain the software
  • Maybe it could be taken over by Alliance, as RNA-Seq/Microarray meta data are getting harmonized
  • Expression working group working with Brian Oliver to have GEO take in more structured meta data
  • Array Express tried requiring more structured meta data, but authors stopped submitting
  • May be possible to build a form that collects meta data while simultaneously submitting to GEO in parallel

February 13, 2020

Alliance Literature Group

  • Held first meeting on Monday, February 10th
  • Regular meetings will be on Tuesdays at 10am/1pm/6pm
  • Representatives from each group will give a brief overview of their literature pipelines before the group gets into details about deliverables
  • Question about centralized paper repository; group needs guidance from Alliance PIs on how to proceed

?Genotype class model

  • Proposal
  • Can aim to implement for WS277 but may have to wait until WS278

Genotype OA

  • Will put documentation here

WB All-Hands Meeting

  • Doodle poll
  • Any thoughts at this point? Still need to discuss with Hinxton, Toronto.

February 20, 2020


  • We will equate superficially similar/identical genotypes for now
  • What if labs sequence strains later and find out more?
  • Labs will have to report strains and their sequence and we back-curate accordingly

VC2010 assembly genes

  • WormMine now returning double the gene count for C. elegans genes because of incorporation of newest VC2010 assembly
  • How to best handle these "extra" genes?
  • We could make different species entries that specify the assembly version

February 27, 2020

WB Project meeting

  • Early May (~May 7th, 8th)


Outreach inbox

  • 65 unread messages pertaining to AFP, some dating back to June. Can we clean these up?
  • Many are bounced emails messages
  • Do we want a common place to track bad/bouncing email addresses? We need to distinguish addresses that bounce for policy/SPAM reasons versus those that are likely outdated or no longer in use.
