Animal Quantitative Trait Loci database Animal QTLdb


Provides quantitative trait loci (QTL) data for cattle, chicken and pigs. AnimalQTLdb enables comparison of QTL results within species and across experiments. It serves as a bridge between genotypes (genes) and phenotypes (traits), which will inevitably necessitate inclusion of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)/genome-wide association study (GWAS) data. The database contains about 5900 cattle, 3400 chickens, 7400 pigs, 750 sheep and 90 rainbow trout data points.
