September 3, 2020

WS279 Citace upload

  • September 25
  • Local CIT upload (to Wen) Tuesday September 22 by 10am Pacific

New AFP datatype for curation status form (CSF)?

  • afp_othergenefunc (to capture gene function other than enzymatic activity)
  • Can wait a bit before adding to CSF; if there will be dedicated curation for that data type we may add later

GO annotation for description

  • Kimberly will look into 'male tail tip developement' terms for description

Migrate wobr1 server to AWS

  • SOLR, WOBr, SObA, Enrichment analysis
  • Working with Sibyl on the process
  • Will try migrating wobr1 first, as a test case
  • May eventually move, for example, Tazendra
    • Will there be drawbacks to doing this?
    • Can we regularly ssh into Tazendra on AWS without issue? Costs for transferring large files
  • Don't yet know the details of the costs, but we can try and keep track
  • We should move into WB or Alliance AWS instances (or Stanford)

WormBase talk at Boston Area Worm Meeting

  • https://www.umassmed.edu/ambroslab/meetings/bawm/
  • Meeting will be virtual on Zoom
  • Chris will give a talk September 23rd, 6pm Eastern, 3pm Pacific (probably first speaker but not sure)
  • Send topic requests to Chris for the talk
  • Current topics:
    • Micropublications
    • Author First Pass
    • Automated Gene Descriptions
    • Community Curation
    • WB Query Tools
  • Chris will ask organizers if others can join: post on WormBase blog? May draw too large an audience for the zoom channel;
  • If the organizers record the talk, we can post it on the blog and WB YouTube channel

September 10, 2020

GO GAF Files

  • WS278 GO GAF is using the new 2.2 file format
  • GO will not be emitting GAF 2.2 until the end of the year (will try to get a fixed date)
  • Implications for gene descriptions, but what about other tools, applications at WB?
  • Kimberly will make documentation available
  • Some errors in the current WS278 GAF, but will get fixed soon
    • Impacts gene descriptions for WS278, so using WS277 for now; will be OK once source GAF is fixed

Disease files on FTP

  • No changes for WS278 FTP files, except an extra custom file that Hinxton is producing mostly for gene descriptions so that we don't get the wrong human diseases via poor orthology calls (see GitHub issue https://github.com/WormBase/website/issues/7839)
  • Will be some consolidation of disease data possibly for WS279 FTP files, implications for downstream tools--gene descriptions, WOBR, ??

WormBase talk at Worcester Area Worm Meeting

  • Chris set to give talk on December 1st, 2020, via Zoom, 4pm (or 4:30pm) EST / 1pm Pacific
  • 30 minute slot; complementary to BAWM talk?
