All the necessary trackers are in place and in use ...


  • Target for the Beta release is now Mid-May, running in parallel to GeneDB
    • We will have Beta site content ready to demo at the International meeting, even if the full release is not ready. Current work should centre on:
      • Getting the majority of the curated data onto the Gene Pages
        • AI Prioritise curation datatypes for inclusion
          • AI Kim to arrange next Cambridge visit by Mark to prioritise curation types for beta inclusion
            • AI After meeting with Mark, arrange weekly pre release website overview meeting (possible Friday morning 9-10)
      • Making necessary changes to website identified as "required for Beta release" (See below)
        • AI Dan to set up Jira "Pombase website" specific tracker
          • AI Val to move outstanding requests to tracker
          • AI Val and Midori to review current site and request other changes classifying by:
            • required for beta release
            • required for main release
            • required with high priority after release
            • required with medium priority after releas
            • required with low priority after release (or equivalent)
      • Low Priority, most people aren't keen on the current colour scheme, Val will try to do a few mock-ups with different colour

Suggestion from Kim, we should call the "beta" release "preview" (Even have a separate URL:

Variation data

  • Daniel Jeffares to send sample variation data to Dan Staines (desirable but not essential for PomBase release)
    • AI Val to follow up
    • AI Dan S. will try to make this available in parallel to the essential beta release features

Pombe International meeting

  • AI Val Midori and Mark should try to finalise the abstracts for Pombe 2011 June 27-30 when we next meet up in Cambridge. 3 poster abstracts and posters:
    • Val/Midori? community curation
    • Midori phenotype ontology and phenotype curation
    • Mark "PomBase" as "un-techy" as possible; try to show some of the displays/features
    • Val will also try to arrange talk/demo/workshop but will probably be selected for a workshop talk from the abstracts


  • Pombeclub 10 May Val presenting, will give a project overview:
    • using ontologies for curation and the new phenotype ontology
    • community curation
    • new website overview (need screenshots) AI, Val, Midori, Kim, Mark attending
