What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#2, 2007):

- 1 -
A new interface to the AnGenMap mailing list and member directory
is created (the old interface/forms were heavily hacked and services
suspended since January).

Besides the newly added security measures, the new design also offers more

o You can edit your profile

o You can manage your subscription/unsubscription to AnGenMap
   through a web form (the usual "angenmap-request" way still works).

o You can manage your primary and alternative email addresses
   (suppose you have multiple mail boxes and you wish to receive
   AnGenMap mails on one while can post from all others)

o Personalized passwords (previously common password for all) and
   automated password help for you to change/retrieve your password.

o A set of managing tool is also built so now you can ask the site
   manager to delete an entry (previously this was not available).

- 2 -
An NAGRP sheep genomics web site is setup to list all sheep genome
research related resources, links and databases.

- 3 -
A number of new structural genomics information are aligned to
respective QTL maps.  These include:

o Respective Affy array elements to QTL maps for pigs and cattle.
o Respective Oligo array elements to QTL maps for pigs and cattle.
o SNPs stored in Genbank to respective chicken, pigs and cattle
   QTL maps.

Check out each map at for more details.
The QTLdb user guide, "the Frequently asked questions: An Introduction to
using the QTLdb" is also updated.

If you have an Affy/Oligo expressed data set for map locations to aid the
expression data/QTL information mining, please contact us.

More functions are added to the GO Terms Classifications Counter:
now the "counted terms" and "odd terms" are listed along with their
occurrences to help users better analyze and improve their GO terms

See more details in a revised user guide:
