NAR just have let us know that our manuscript of AnnotQTL has been accepted for publication. The manuscript will be online in 2-3 weeks! In addition to the first release of AnnotQTL, we have added several ‘missing’ features:
- The assembly version and the date of the request are now inserted into the exported text file (TSV or XML).
- You can now run multiple analyses of several QTL regions (via a specific form in the ‘submit a request’ section). Of course, in this ‘multiple analyses’ mode, the highlight features still work (but for a unique biological function, i.e.: reproduction trait for all the QTL regions).
AnnotQTL can be found at http://annotqtl.genouest.org. We have also decided to add new features in a close future (based on the referee’s comments), such as to define a genomic region based on the STS markers surrounding a QTL region. A contact form is available on the official AnnotQTL website, you can leave a comment or ask for new species. The article is available here.
