What's new on NAGRP animal genome web site (#2, 2008)

A new computational pipeline, called "SNPidentifier", to discover SNPs
based on CAP3 alignments is available for free download. For details,
see Bowen et al., "SNP discovery in Litopenaeus vannamei with a new
computational pipeline" (in the coming issue of Animal Genetics).

NAGRP Blast Server: Several improvements have been continuously made.

 o mpiBlast are added to NAGRP blast engines to make use of the
   power of the new cluster computer acquired a while ago.
   (Updated: Mar. 27, 2008)

 o The NAGRP Blast Center has updated its sequence database by adding
   10+ New sequence databases.  The sequence database verses blast engine
   (mpiBLAST and ncbiBLAST) selection is re-organized so that heavy duty
   jobs is normally handled with mpiBLAST.
   (Updated: Apr. 10, 2008)

 o Traditional Blast revived for some large data sets (parallel to
   mpiBLAST) to meet the needs for graphics representation of blast
   results as requested by users.
   (Updated: May 20, 2008)

 o New draft pig genome assembly sequences are updated for blast database.
   It's planned that the update will be made quarterly when the Sanger
   Institute regularly releases the new assembly.

QTLdb: Thanks to efforts by Cathy Ernst's group at the Michigan State
University, 156 new pig QTL were added to the pig QTL database.

Animal Trait Ontology (ATO) web site has been updated to reflect
the recent progress we have made.
