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 Come to the Micropublication booth (#102) to learn how to micropublish your unpublished data!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!
