Database developments: (1) Extensive improvements of curator tools were made for better streamed workflows and more intuitive environments to follow curation steps. The development efforts were focused at reducing the chances for a curator to manually enter some critical info where automatic carry-over can be implemented. At-the-site user instructions were developed/revised to offer better helps to curators. (2) Continued debug of curator/editor tools that also helped with improved data-debugs (improvement of data quality control processes). (3) Continued development of QTL/association data enrichment tools in terms of allowing user defind genome (chromosomal) regions and selection of multiple traits for evaluations. The tool is still at developmental stage but an alpha-test version is available on the "Search and Analysis Tools" page for user inputs.
