The completion of the pig draft genome sequence marks a milestone in 20 years of pig genome studies. The Pig Genome Database (PGD) is to serve the purpose not only to bring together pig gene expression, quantitative trait loci (QTL), candidate gene, and whole genome association study (WGAS) results, but also to facilitate information integration and mining within the pig and across species.
