The Animal QTLdb Release
Dec 28, 2022


Release 49

(Dec 28, 2022): A sum of 3,979 new QTL/associations have been curated into the database. (New additions less obsolete/retracted ones: Catfish: 0; Cattle: 425; Chicken: 1,657; Goat: 1; Horse: 13; Pig: 879; Sheep: 88; Rainbow trout: 916 -- Net increase: 3,979). To date, the current total number of QTL in the database: 258,290 [Breakdown by species -- Cattle: 193,641 (on 686 traits); Chicken: 18,313 (on 370 traits); Goat: 129 (on 26 traits); Horse: 2,649 (on 65 traits); Pig: 36,725 (on 698 traits); Sheep: 4,504 (on 267 traits); Rainbow trout: 2,329 (on 47 traits)]. In addition, updates have been made to previously curated 395 QTL / associations as part of our efforts on data quality controls.
( This is a joint release with the 17th CorrDB release.)

Database developments summary:
(1) Genomic marker types as a curation parameter was added to Animal QTLdb curation pipelines in early 2016. We have retrospectively caught up marker type information for data curated prior to that time. Subsequently we have added this parameter for data downloads. The marker types data counts can be found on "data summary" pages of each species (choose "5. Number of QTL/associations by marker types" from the option list.) (2) Developmental works on data pipeline automations to streamline the processes bringing the QTL/association information across different genome builds and dbSNP releases.
