What's new on NAGRP animal genome web site (#1, 2009)

o A long waited feature -- data download is now made possible on the
   Animal QTLdb.  Users can download QTL data per chromosome by browsing to
   respective chromosomes, by click on a chromosome from one of the links:

o On the QTL chromosomal view pages, users also have options to download
   subsets of data when the view is refined by key word search. This feature
   is useful for users to focus on his/her pre-defined data scope. An example
   of such download:

o GBrowse is setup to display genome tracks for cattle and chicken, with
   QTL locations aligned to the respective genomes. On the alignment view,
   QTL details can be viewed with pop-up text box by mouse-over the QTL
   line, or for further QTL details by clicking on the QTL line.

o Animal QTLdb main pages for cattle, pigs and chicken are revised to
   accommodate the recently implemented changes for users to easily locate
   the needed service links:

o An ontology web browser tool from the GO consortium, AmiGO, is setup
   for Animal Trait Ontology browse and search.  The new AmiGO is much
   improved for browse and search.

o A web-based program, CateGOrizer (previously known as "GO Terms
   Categorization Counter"), is officially released for public use. The
   tool is designed to batch analyze GO class categories, useful in GO
   class analysis for large EST or microarray studies.  A paper by Hu
   et al published on OJB 9(2):108-112, describes the tool.
