Meetings

Registration for September GOC & SAB meetings open (Midori)

David: Which evening is the "Consortium dinner"?

Midori: I haven't named any of them, but I think more people will be there on Wednesday (23rd; dinner in Jesus College), so you can think of that as the consortium dinner. No decision yet on whether Thursday or Friday is "SAB dinner".

Has_part

Ready to announce use of has_part in extended GO file

Action item: Midori: Send has_part announcement

Cross-products

Almost ready to announce cross-products in extended GO file

But is the documentation adequate?

David suggests Chris lead webex tutorial for the few people who edit GO; can fill in web & wiki documentation thereafter

for tutorial, want to include Donghui, Harold, Karen C; anyone else? (email)

Some important points to make

  • choosing genus - case-by-case
  • need to make sure xp def is necessary and sufficient

Also had brief recap of Chris' EBI visit and xp roll-out plan

Decision: Organize the webex tutorial for GO curators, then send announcement to GO Friends once tutorial has taken place.
