What's new on the NAGRP animal genome web site (#3, 2006):

o The QTLdb is now open to public for data entry and updates.
   One will need to register in order to enter his/her own data:  The benefits being a
   QTLdb curator are: (1) You can enter or update your data at any
   time; (2) You may wish to keep your data "private" or "public";
   (3) You can take advantages of QTLdb's internal comparative viewer
   to exam your data against other public data as a study tool.

   Community Directory is nearly 1,000.  The members represent a
   wide spectrum of different research fields, subject species,
   working affiliations and countries/regions in the world.
