PAINT conference call minutes
April 22, 2014.
Participants: Rama, Karen, Pascale, Moni, Huaiyu
Update on the GAF file issue
Currently, the gaf files in the PAINT curation directory can be out of date. The files reflect the status at the time of the paint curation. Any updates on the ontology or curation after that are not updated to the gaf files. Huaiyu and Pascale have been corresponding with Suzi, Chris and Heiko. A script will be implemented to update the GAF files when there are updates on the ontology and annotation in the GO database. Pascale created a wiki page to track the issues to be fixed by the process: http://wiki.geneontology.org/index.php/Scripts_to_ensure_PAINT_data_integrity.
Huaiyu: Based on some previous discussion with Suzi, it seems that MODs may have problem automatically deleting an annotation when it is removed from the gaf file. This could be a concern to our PAINT recuration effort last summer. Need to check.
Karen: MGI deletes everything and reload the data based on the updated GAF file, so it is not a problem. So the problem is only in some MODs.
Moni: Probably should ask the MODs, and then come up with a process to handle the issue.
PAINT annotation discussion
Huaiyu walked through a family (PTHR24060).
