  • Discussion of allele-paper connections
    • Jolene has a Textpresso-based pipeline for identifying alleles in papers
    • Alleles get associated with a paper if there is phenotypic or molecular data
    • List of all alleles associated with a paper could possibly be passed on to Sanger for subsequent connection
  • Discussion of gene-paper connections
    • What criteria should be used for associating genes with papers?
    • Currently being associated manually by a curator during first-pass
    • Could Textpresso be harnessed for this task?
    • There are different evidences attached to gene-paper connections
    • Genes associated with a paper via Textpresso searches could be presented to the first-pass curator for approval in the first-pass form
    • Need to fix current abstract-gene associating script to include proteins (e.g. PIE-1)
  • Incorporate a canned Textpresso query on WormBase object pages so users could look for additional info if they want
  • Other gene-object connections
    • Develop a canned query for all objects that should be associated with the gene page
  • Worm Meeting
    • Pre-meeting - meeting rooms?
    • Pre-meeting - practice talks for WormBase workshop
    • Storage for swag - pavillion should be okay
