What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#3, 2016)

o Animal QTLdb updates:

  Announcing Release 30 of the Animal QTLdb.  A sum of 11,571 new
  QTL/associations have been added to the database. The current total number
  of QTL/association data in the database: 106,028 [Breakdown: Cattle: 81,652;
  Chicken: 5,683; Horse: 1,197; Pig: 16,033; Sheep: 1,336; Rainbow trout: 127]
  (New additions: Cattle: 10,205; Chicken: 221; Horse: 58; Pig: 924; Sheep:
163).
  We thank Giuseppina Schiavo from University of Bologna, Italy, and Paulina
  Eusebi from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona of Spain for their efforts
  entering data into the QTLdb.

  Developmental updates:

  (1) Introducing the new chicken genome build (GG_5.0) to the QTLdb.  We have
  completed the first trial of lifting the QTL/association coordinates to the
  new build. Continued efforts will be made to verify the transferred data in
  the upcoming weeks. Please note the availability of chicken QTL/association
  data for download and for graphic visualization online may be affected.

  (2) New file format examples are being added to the "Minimum information
  required for Animal QTLdb data entry" page in the form of Excel worksheets.
  Click the icon on the right hand side to see an example, and scroll to the
  bottom of the page to download all Excel templates. More such templates are
  still being added to provide a convenient way for users to prepare their
  data for upload into the QTLdb.

o New server:

  The AnimalGenome.ORG site is being moved to a new server with more computing
  power, which will help us to meet new challenges. The move affects multiple
  services (more than two dozen hosted web sites, databases, virtual domains,
  etc). The complete migration of the services and development platform has
  been going relatively smoothly and is expected to be complete in the next
  couple months.

  With multiple computer servers, we can now offer more services to the
  community, such as virtual machines (i.e., a computer space where you have
  complete control over what you would like to develop, your own domain name,
  etc.).

o VCF data repository development:

  We are engaged with EBI (EMBL European Bioinformatics Institute) for
  collaborative VCF (variant call format) file archives. At EBI/EVA (European
  Variation Archive), all VCF data will be validated prior to entry in their
  repository, then further streamed to NCBI/dbSNP. See the NAGRP VCF Data
  Repository for updates in the coming months.

o CorrDB development:

  New curation tools are under active development and expected to be released
  soon. This development is intended to couple with the QTLdb in terms of
  sharing developed resources and tools, and providing a central resource for
  livestock genotype-phenotype information.

for up-to-date information on this site. We appreciate user reports on broken
links or web errors to help us ensure a smooth transition of services to the
new server.

Your input is always important to us. Feel free to contact us any time with
your needs, requests, and/or suggestions. You can reach us in multiple ways:
