For the 2015 International C. elegans meeting, WormBase will present two identical workshops to cover some of WormBase’s newer tools and data as well as ways in which the nematode research community may contribute data and annotations to the database. We will cover basics of data mining with WormMine (the WormBase instance of Intermine), introduce our instantiation of the JBrowse genome browser, and demo the new ParaSite website which hosts genome sequences for parasitic nematode species. We will discuss WormBase sequence data available in complementary resources such as Ensembl Genomes and the UCSC Assembly Hub for C. elegans. We will also provide a number of options for users to submit their own data using sequence variation data, gene concise descriptions and Gene Ontology annotations as examples.
