Outreach: GO webinars
Suggestion from PIs + follow discussion Kimberly, David, Pascale
- Time to be defined
- One GO user/GO tool developer would present ~30 minutes + some discussion
- Goal is to be more in touch with our users, perhaps also help drive decisions as we hear more specific use cases
Outreach proposal: reddit
GO-themed "Ask me anything" on Reddit, maybe during the GO meetings when everyone's captive. Similar to these
Outreach: External Group contact
Should be Suzi A.
- OBO Foundry

- Created a project: https://github.com/orgs/geneontology/projects/34
Early February in LA?
Proposed aims (David, Kimberly, Pascale):
- import of legacy annotations & GP2term relations
- also for importing legacy annotations - mapping existing annotation extensions to GO-CAM models
- We will follow up by email, but it is looking like late February.
- On call: Chris, David, Huaiyu, Judy, Kimberly, Pascale, Seth, Suzi L., Suzy A.
- Will move to weekly meetings starting in January

Current high-priority projects
GO data release pipeline
- Will soon move all the way through the automated pipeline
- Want to merge Noctua annotations into main annotation file
- Need to update documentation to make it clear how groups should retrieve files
- Need to re-visit documentation for gpad/gpi submission so groups understand that these files should correspond to the MOD- or group-specific entities
- Testing new site, links
- Help email will stay as is for now
Migrating whole genomes into Noctua
- Dustin has started parsing WB GAF for gene-specific models
Next f2f meeting
- Trying for some time in February
- Initially proposed to work on whole genome's worth of import
- Other GO-CAM-related work, e.g. file pipelines, templates, merging models, etc. would be good
