CeNGEN graph on gene pages

  • We would like to show an expression level graph on each gene page. CeNGEN prefers something similar to what we have for FPKM expression.
  • Sibyl drafted a prototype that is 2D so that it solves the issue of fitting into one page width while making highly expressing cells prominent.

Caltech hosted CGIs

  • Caltech IMSS is blocking some WB IP addresses likely from nefarious actors on AWS, thereby breaking WB links to Caltech-hosted CGIs
  • Although WB uses dedicated AWS IPs, those some how still got on a black list.
  • The ultimate solution is to move all services answering WB queries to AWS, so there is no extr-AWS network traffic.
  • Could non-SObA CGIs move to different servers (AWS?)?
  • SObA is resource intensive when new releases are being built but otherwise memory requirements can be tuned (affecting caching) for serving queries. We can use a local machine for building a release and then transfer the built database to a live machine in the cloud. This approach also alleviates some sysadmin load for Caltech.
