The 23rd International C. elegans conference is anywhere and everywhere!

The 23rd International C. elegans Conference website is now live.

Dates: June 21-25, 2021

Name: 23rd International C. elegans Conference

Location: Anywhere and Everywhere (virtual)

Organizers: Barbara Conradt and Piali Sengupta

Description: The International C. elegans Conference takes place every two years and features cutting-edge research in a diverse array of topics, including physiology, neurobiology, development, evolution, behavior, aging, ecology, gene regulation, genomics, and more. For 2021, #Worm21 has been reimagined for a virtual platform and will focus on early career researchers at every stage.

WormBase workshop talks at the 2019 IWM available on Youtube

Talks delivered at the WormBase workshop as part of the International C. elegans meeting at UCLA in June 2019 are now available on Youtube. Please note that these are recordings done at the workshop with external cameras and microphones, so apologies if they are not of the highest quality.  They are linked from their titles below–

  1. Introduction to the WormBase webpages and widgets
  2. WormBase data mining tools: SimpleMine, WormMine, BioMart
  3. WormBase ontologies and gene set enrichment analysis
  4. WormBase JBrowse: tutorial and demo
  5. Community curation
  6. Introduction to the Alliance of Genome Resources


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  Come to the Micropublication booth (#102) to learn how to micropublish your unpublished data!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

WormBase Workshop at International Worm Meeting 2015

Thursday, June 25 – 1pm -2:30pm
Saturday, June 27 – 1pm – 2:30pm

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.
