User meeting: nothing prepared for the moment.

From last meeting, users preference were:

- enrichment analysis

- data access and integration

- hands-on, jupyter notebooks

- ontology

- curation

GO-CAM Jamboree

  • Proposal to have a GO-CAM curation jamboree sometime this fall
  • How critical will it be to have Noctua on a more secure production footing by this time?

Not sure yet before or after GO meeting. Possible concern with the fire season.

Name: GO-CAMboree ?


  • There is a discussion about possibly duplicating effort by asking groups to submit a GPI file to GO and a BGI file to the Alliance.
    • Stacia raised the issue of possibly overlapping goals here on a GO annotation call some time ago.
    • Should we re-visit this and discuss aligning these files more closely? Could one file be derived from the other?
    • Should these types of files be moving towards a more ontological representation of entities? We'd ultimately like to do that with annotatable entities in GO.
    • What would the development costs be for everyone to make changes?
    • Need to communicate our thoughts/decision on this to the Alliance PIs
  • Would like to formalize groups’ review of the specifications and ask groups to sign off their review on a github ticket.
  • Would give groups until September 1st, but after that no changes would be allowed for 2.0.

Also how to include xrefs (eg gp2protein, gp2rna) in GPI files.

Discussion on taxon constraints ?

GO-CAM content

-> Do we want to schedule that ? Or are there Noctua features required first ? - Kimberly generated a list of pathways for C elegans - Kimberly: We *could* schedule a jamboree for the fall, but she is concerned that we have many questions about how to model certain things (namely, activity-regulating processes) - Kimberly will ask at the next annotation call to see who would be interested in attending, and will schedule a date

GO-CAMs from existing pathway resources
