What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#3, 2006):
o The QTLdb is now open to public for data entry and updates.
One will need to register in order to enter his/her own data:
http://www.animalgenome.org/QTLdb/app.html The benefits being a
QTLdb curator are: (1) You can enter or update your data at any
time; (2) You may wish to keep your data "private" or "public";
(3) You can take advantages of QTLdb's internal comparative viewer
to exam your data against other public data as a study tool.
o The PigQTLdb has evolved into an "Animal QTLdb" which has its
preliminary release at http://www.animalgenome.org/QTLdb/.
This release contains more pig data, and with newly added cattle
and chicken data as well.
o New features has been added to the GO Classifications Counter. Now
users can upload their own classifications as a counting guide, and
have options to count either single occurrences or all occurrences.
o The NAGRP Bioinformatics FTP site has been moved from the old
http://db.genome.iastate.edu/ftp/share/ to a new location at
http://www.animalgenome.org/...bioinfo/tools/share/ Now the content
is served through a HTTP server.
o The number of registered members to the Animal Genome Research
Community Directory is nearly 1,000. The members represent a
wide spectrum of different research fields, subject species,
working affiliations and countries/regions in the world.
o A database is setup for the AquaGenomics community members to share
their publications. Any registered member can upload their paper
to the archive and manage his/her own list of publications along
with the directory information.
o Crittenden Poultry Genome References mailing list and archives are
moved to a new location.
o See http://www.animalgenome.org/news/whatsnew.html for more updates
information on the site.
