Form input

Mail communication

  • Based on Semantic Tasks extension
  • Asking user for action (bring samples to the lab)
  • Informing user about request status
  • Users can opt out verbose communication

User satisfaction tracking

  • When request closed
  • Email sent. User directed to a Special Page form
  • Valid for a limited time (e. g., 2 weeks max)
  • Only editable a few times (or only once)

User satisfaction tracking

Lab operators extra input

  • Wiki-way. Flexible. Some info structured, some not
    • Documentation
    • Standard Operation Procedures (SOP)
    • Informal instrument queue

Different data handling in MediaWiki as a CMS

  • User import via specific extensions
  • Using modified External data extension
  • Extensions accessing file system
    • Mirror of PDB structures

Semantic Data Import

Data from CSV input

Output view handled with

CouchDB + Lucene

Making search faster

  • CouchDB: NoSQL Document DBMS
  • Lucene: Information retrieve library. ElasticSearch or Solr based on it
  • Mapping SMW Templates to JSON documents
  • Indexing for coordinates and full-text search
  • It might be ported to ElasticSearch

Genome Annotation

AnnoWiki

Genome Annotation

AnnoWiki

Import and export formats

  • FASTA files (sequences)
  • GFF or GTF (feature, relationship, location)
  • Others: chromosome sizes, etc.
  • Raw text files
  • When convenient external tools:
    • NCBI-Blast
    • SAMTools
    • etc.
