The Animal QTLdb Release
Dec 21, 2017


Release 34

(Dec 21, 2017): A sum of 9,705 new QTL added to the database. (New additions less obsolete/retracted ones: Catfish: 0; Cattle: 8,388; Chicken: 551; Horse: 26; Pig: 466; Sheep: 274; Rainbow trout: 0 -- Net increase: 9,705). The current total number of QTL in the database: 145,842 [Breakdown by species -- Cattle: 108,040; Chicken: 8,363; Horse: 1,304; Pig: 26,076; Sheep: 1,932; Rainbow trout: 127]
( This is a joint release with the 2nd CorrDB release)

Database developments: (1) As part of the Animal QTLdb/CorrDB co-development efforts, functions are developed to link QTL data with trait correlation data through common trait terms where such data exist. For example, within the CorrDB, under the Table View of correlation data, a hyper-linked red "QTL" label is added when QTL data exists on the trait; Like-wise, within the QTLdb on the trait search results, an hyper-linked tag is added on traits where correlation data are found. (2) New web portals are developed for display of "gene centric view" and "trait centric view" of QTL/association data where underlining gene information is available. This tool helps users to relatively quickly to interrogate and understand genotype-to-phenotype information in a synopsis. A quick way to use the tool to view information is to try a search by genes or by traits (e.g. try "grand search", then go to "genes" or "traits"), or go from a "Trait Details" view to following links on "List all QTL/association data where a gene may exist". The returned query results are displayed in one of the two ways - "gene centric" or "trait centric" view - at user's choice.
