  • The AFP pipeline is currently emailing authors from karen's e-mail address
  • Use same e-mail account Chris is using for phenotype community curation requests or create a new account for AFP (gmail)
  • Can use outreach@wormbase.org for consistency
  • May use the PMID in the subject line so e-mails will not be all in the same thread
  • Todd and Chris have email credentials
    • Chris will send to Valerio, Juancarlos, Daniela, and Kimberly
  • Let Valerio and Juancarlos know what pipelines use AFP before they modify
  • Do curators still want to receive emails when authors flag their data type?
    • We will leave the alert emails as is for now

  • Shall we move tazendra.caltech.edu to the cloud? Either WormBase cloud or Caltech cloud?
