What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#1, 2006):
o PigQTLdb Update: 471 pig QTL from 20 publications have been added. As a
result the PigQTLdb has 17 new traits (a total of 239 traits now).
o Extension of the PigQTLdb functionality:
1) The pig RH-human comparative mapping results by Stacey et al has been
2) The highly contiguous and integrated BAC physical map of the porcine
genome from the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium has also been
These improvements allows users to easily find comparative information
from a QTL, or a synthesized QTL region. There are 2 ways to utilize the
a) Use a panel added above the QTL chromosome view, to the right, which
allows you to input the upper and lower QTL boundaries in terms of cM; or
b) Click on the vertical QTL bars to bring up a popup menu for the links
to RH-human maps or to the pig clones.
o A comparative map drawing tool to generate on-the-fly maps has been
created. The tool has been applied to generate maps with the SIAG(SUNbRH)
map data (Itoh et al., Genomics, 85(4).
o A database is created for genetic analysis software lists. The database
is designed to query by keywords, or browse alphabetically, the content
for the ease of finding needed software.
o An aquagenomics community directory has been created.

o Submit new events! -- A new link is added to each meetings/events page of
the NAGRP cattle, chicken, pigs, sheep, horses, aquaculture web sites for
the public to advertise the conferences, workshops, meetings & short
courses. The links are located in the lower right corner of the pages.
o In addition, see the daily updated "what's new" page for new/updated
information on the NAGRP genome web site.
