What's new on NAGRP animal genome web site (#1, 2010)
o Announcing the Release 10 of the Animal QTLdb:
As of December 30, 2009, a total of 1281 new QTL have been
added to the Animal QTLdb since last release in September
-- Cattle: 15; Chicken: 573; Pig: 693. We encourage all users
to add your own new QTL data through the Curator web form:
o Pig Genome Assembly v.9 is on GBrowse:
The pig genome assembly version 9 can now be viewed on GBrowse.
The genome feature tracks include sequenced clones (Finished BABs,
Unfinished BACs, FPC clones), Ensembl predicted genes, QTL, etc.
o Animal QTLdb - NCBI Updates:
Thanks to Wonhee Jang and Donna Maglott from NCBI, that all
cattle, chicken and pig QTL data are ported to and synchronized
with NCBI Gene Database. Now you can find links to NCBI Gene
database when you browse to "detail" views of a QTL on Animal
QTLdb, and vise versa [In terms of data synchronization, a 24
- 48 hours lag time is expected upon a new data release].
The CateGOrizer tool is improved to allow users to add their own
annotations to a data set. This is useful if users have multiple
data sets to compare their differences or similarities.
o Striped Bass Ovarian Transcriptome Database:
With data from Craig Sullivan of North Carolina State University
and Robert Chapman of South Carolina Department of Natural
Resources), a database has been setup for Striped Bass Ovarian
Transcriptome Sequence Contigs. The contig data is annotated
by blast to GO sequence database.
The genome plot tool for SNP association studies is improved for
users to use either "Gensel ID" (serial numbers) or "Illumina ID"
(alpha-numerical names) in the data set.
o As a combined effort between animalgenome.org, the Rat Genome
Database and Mouse Genome Informatics, we have been developing
a vertebrate trait (VT) ontology. A current version can now be
viewed via AmiGO. We will appreciate your feedbacks.
