What's new on NAGRP animal genome web site (#2, 2010)
o Announcing the Release 11 of the Animal QTLdb:
As of April 23, 2010, a total of 1643 new QTL have been added to the
Animal QTLdb since last release before the New Year. The new data
included 1532 cattle QTL and 111 pig QTL. We encourage all users to
add your own new QTL data through the Curator web form:
o SAM data format is now available for data download from the Animal
QTLdb. The SAM data format is to assist users using SAM Tools (for
details using SAM tools, see: http://samtools.sourceforge.net/).
o A major improvement to the CateGOrizer online tool is made to improve
its performance. The improvement included faster algorithms and more
efficient ways to handle large data sets.
o Animal QTLdb frequently asked questions is updated with new items.
The most recent additions are to address possible confusions that some
downloaded QTL data may "appear" like "duplicates". The FAQ explained
why and provided hints as how to correctly examine the downloaded data.
o A generic online tool has been in development to help users to convert
their mapping data file into GFF3 format, which is useful to upload to
GBrowse for map alignments of the genome features. Please let us know
if you have data that are not on our input file format list.
