WormJam (short for Worm Jamboree) is a platform for community effort towards reconciliation of existing and expansion of the unified C. elegans metabolic reconstruction. With the increasing recognition of metabolism as being of pivotal importance for ageing, development, disease mechanisms as well as evolution, the availability of a community-driven consensus reconstruction of C. elegans metabolism will lay the foundation for bringing C. elegans to the forefront of metabolism research.
As part of this effort, our objectives within the WormJam community are:
Ensuring all existing C. elegans metabolic reconstructions and partial consensus reconstructions are freely accessible online.
Annotation of all molecules that can be identified with confidence in C. elegans targeted metabolomics experiments across participating metabolomics labs within the WormBase Molecule resource.
Establishment of a platform for community curation of the metabolic reconstructions and creation of a consensus C. elegans metabolic network. The reconstruction will be tightly integrated with WormBase as a central hub of C. elegans data resources.
Holding annotation jamboree workshops targeting missing C. elegans specific pathways and metabolites.
We are seeking contributors from all aspects of C. elegans biology. Please join the discussion here.
WormJam was born from the hard work of many people.
