Textpresso supplement

  • Due Monday
  • Michael working with Paul S

AWS credits

  • Michael and Valerio were awarded AWS credits, more than they can use
  • Maybe they can be repurposed
  • Valerio will play around with AWS to determine the best/cheapest configuration before migrating to the Alliance

Automated gene descriptions

  • Will the Alliance ever accommodate non-elegans worm species? Can we port over the computed/derived descriptions for non-elegans species to the Alliance?
  • Maybe have clade-specific descriptions based on the popular model (worms based on C. elegans); may be provided in MOD portal page(s)
  • May be the focus of an Alliance supplement
  • We want a flexible pipeline that can be configured depending on availability of data (e.g. protein domains)
