Subject: What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#3, 2007)
What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#3, 2007):
o An "align" box is added to the Animal QTLdb for bringing up the
QTL/linkage maps against various genomic data types such SNPs,
new microsatellites, FPC clones, microarray elements, array elements
etc. This is an alternative to clicking on individual QTL bars as
the Java code may not work on some browser versions.
o Frequently asked questions on Animal QTLdb is updated with three more
items. These new items are to provide hints on how to "zoom", how to
get a "manageable chromosomal view", etc.
o Data update into QTLdb: A new PubMed search tool is recently added
to the Curator/Editor tools, with which a curator can easily bring
a new publication into the database for curation upon review.
For new QTL data that are not covered by PubMed, we encourage users
to inform us the new data source, or better yet, you can register
to be a curator and enter the new QTL data yourself
o Minor allele frequencies are shown for SNPs aligned on cattle QTL maps
[NOTE: Access from the QTL maps -- please choose the SNP alignment to
o A new bulletin form is created within the AnGenMap membership management
tool set, for members to easily submit their post to the AnGenMap mailing
list, especially for those who encounter repeated listserv complains
about having "HTML" or "attachments" in your email and are frustrated as
how to correct the problem.
o The AnGenMap FAQ is updated with more answers to questions. Hopefully
users will find the information helpful for easily use the AnGenMap.
