In the coming weeks, the Worm Community Forum will be migrating to a new home and a new platform.
As part of the Alliance of Genome Resources project (of which WormBase is a founding member), we’ve built an entirely new discussion forum using the Discourse platform.
The Alliance Community Forum represents the first opportunity for online discussions across model organism communities. We hope that this cross fertilization stimulates new discussions, raises awareness about techniques from other areas, and provides a convenient place for posting job positions.
We’ve already ported almost all users and the entirety of the discussion history from the Worm Community Forum. Still, we expect some minor inconveniences. Namely, existing users of the Worm Community Forum will need to reconfirm their accounts on the new system. We’ve also necessarily had to reorganize the hierarchy of some of the existing discussion boards, as well as remove some obsolete ones.
When the Alliance Community Forum officially launches, we will disable posting here but keep the forum running for a brief period. Eventually, we will redirect the Worm Community Forum to the Alliance Community Forum entirely.
