The Animal CorrDB Release
Apr 26, 2021


Release 12
(Apr 26, 2021): A sum of 1,368 new correlations [Breakdown by species -- Pig: 233 (12 new traits); Cattle: 945 (24 new traits); Chicken: 190 (6 new traits) ] and a sum of 313 new heritability data [Breakdown by species -- Cattle: 177 (32 new traits); Chicken: 24 (3 new traits); Sheep: 8 (0 new traits); ] have been curated into the CorrDB. To date, the total number of correlation data in the database: 22,404 [Breakdown by species -- Cattle: 12,222; Chicken: 1,437; Horse: 209; Pig: 6,968; Sheep: 1,568], and total heritability data: 4,079 [Breakdown by species -- Cattle: 2,058; Chicken: 311; Horse: 118; Pig: 1,396 (less 1,241 heritability data entered prior to 2012 that were recalled); Sheep: 196], curated from 378 publications.
( This is a joint release with the 44th QTLdb release)

Database developments: (1) Progress is being made to improve the web interface for better data summary, query, and data representation reports. The initial visible change is the new front page with new data summary tables. Further changes will include sub-page reformats to reflect multiple reports on the same pairs of traits, and/or correlation types (phenotypic, genetic, environmental, residual), and reports by species. These improvements are made possible by recent addition of a database routine to perform post-curation data processing for improved structural data queries. This is an on-going process; stay tuned for new updates. (2) Continued improvement of data curation tools by adding data summary for curators to be better informed when at certain part of the curation process, and by adding direct work flow links between tools. (3) The Animal CorrDB are published on Figshare open access platform through the Iowa State University Library. Subsequently, now each database has an universal Digital Object Identifier (DOI), and all are covered by the Creative Commons licenses. As a result, there can be alternative ways how the users of the QTLdb or CorrDB can properly cite the use of the database resources and/or tools. Please check each database website to find more details (click on respective web page footages for copyright claims, and citation details; the same information is pre-pended to all download data files as well).
