Database developments:
(1) The curator tools have been extensively (involving 15 scripts serving 47 curator views/functions) re-developed in the way how "trait variants" (previously called "sibling traits") information is curated. This improvement is aimed not only to bring the erratic livestock traits curation to be practically doable, but also to gear the management of such data towards a better structure in terms of information disseminations and ontology developments. (2) As part of the efforts implementing trait variant management, more than 8 user view pages were modified to accommodate the changes.
