Come visit us at the IWM 2017!

WormBase has a number of activities planned at the IWM 2017 at UCLA. A plenary talk will give an overview about the exciting things that have been implemented or planned for WormBase.  Come to the WormBase workshop (Thursday, June 22, 1.00pm-2.30pm, Northwest Auditorium) to learn about data mining tools in WormBase, and how to contribute your data.  Come to the Micropublication booth (#102) to learn how to micropublish your unpublished data! WormBase staff will be present at the WormBase booth (#103) to answer any questions and to assist you with any queries you need help with.  We look forward to hearing your suggestions, comments and feedback! See you soon!

Call for gene expression data

Are you presenting gene expression data at the upcoming IWM? Do you have gene expression data you never published and you always wanted to? Publish them now! Fill out this form on WormBase and get credit for your work. It’s fast and easy. We will send your work out for review and if approved it will get a DOI and published right away so you can get cited! Visit www.micropublicationbiology.org to see some Micropublication examples. Submissions received before May 20th will have a chance to be featured in the Micropublication Booklet that will be distributed at Micropublication: biology, Knudra, Nemametrix, and WormBase booths at the IWM in June!”

The Worm Lab Project @ The WBG

Check out the The Worm Lab Project at the Worm Breeder’s Gazette that seeks to capture the rich history and scientific spirit of the C. elegans research community by publishing brief interviews with lab heads and principal investigators.

We invite all PIs/lab heads of laboratories registered with the CGC to take the Worm Lab Project interview! We will publish submissions on a rolling basis.
