ArkDB

Highlights

The ArkDB database system aims to provide a comprehensive public repository for genome mapping data from farmed and other animal species. The aim is to provide a route into genomic and other sequence from the initial viewpoint of linkage mapping, RH mapping, physical mapping or - possibly more importantly - QTL mapping data. Main species in the database are: cat, chicken, cow, deer, horse, pig, quail, salmon, sea bass, sheep and turkey.

CATALOGUE OF LIFE:2005 ANNUAL CHECKLIST

Highlights

Species 2000 and the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) are involving taxonomists throughout the world in the Species 2000 and ITIS Catalogue of Life (CoL) programme, collating a uniform and validated index to the worlds known species for use as a practical tool in inventorying and monitoring biodiversity worldwide. This is a work in progress, now covering nearly one-third of the world’s species including plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms.

DOMESTIC ANIMAL DIVERSITY INFORMATION SYSTEM (DAD–IS)

Highlights

Domestic Animal Diversity Information System (DAD–IS) is the key communication and information tool for implementing the Global Strategy for the Management of Farm Animal Genetic Resources (AnGR). It is being developed first to assist countries and country networks, and also serves as the virtual structure for the Strategy. It will increasingly provide extensive searchable databases, tools, guidelines, a library, links and contacts.

DOMESTIC ANIMAL GENETIC RESOURCES INFORMATION SYSTEMS (DAGRIS)

Highlights

DAGRIS is an information system designed to facilitate the compilation, organization and dissemination of information on the origin, distribution, diversity, present use and status of indigenous farm animal genetic resources from past and present research results in an efficient way. The underlying concept is that such information provides the necessary basis for developing breed improvement as well as conservation programs. The working objectives of DAGRIS are: 1) Compile and organize information on farm animal genetic resources from all available sources; 2) Maintain the integrity and validity of the information, and 3) Disseminate the information in a readily accessible way to all key stakeholders.

EAAP GENETIC DATABASE

Highlights

The data bank monitors information on breeds and country populations – of the farm animal species buffalo, cattle, sheep, goat, pig and horse, ass, rabbits – in 46 countries of Europe to keep watch on development, change and risk of extinction, to encourage use and conservation of animal genetic diversity. You have three modes of access: 1. Country-by-species tables 2. groups of similar breeds 3. search for breeds

LIVESTOCK AND ENVIRONMENT TOOLBOX (LEAD)

Highlights

The aim of the toolbox is to provide practical aid on livestock and environment issues in the decision making of policy-makers and planners in developing countries. Three main categories of livestock production systems are covered: Grazing, Mixed crop/livestock and Industrial. Each category is further divided into sub-systems. The toolbox contains information (text, photos, tables, maps) that enable the user to explore interactions between livestock and the environment, and to identify interactions that enhance the positive and/or mitigate the negative impacts (also available on CD-ROM).

MOUSE GENOME INFORMATICS (MGI)

Highlights

The Mouse Genome Informatics Database provides integrated access to data on the genetics, genomics and biology of the laboratory mouse. The projects contributing to this resource are: Mouse Genome Database (MGD) Project includes data on gene characterization and nomenclature, mapping, gene homologies among mammals, sequence links, phenotypes, allelic variants and mutants, and strain data. Gene Expression Database (GXD) Project integrates different types of gene expression information from the laboratory mouse, and provides an electronic index of published experiments on endogenous gene expression during mouse development. Mouse Genome Sequence (MGS) Project, the goal of the MGS project is to integrate emerging mouse genomic sequence data with the genetic and biological data available in MGD and GXD. MGS supports the MouseBLAST server as a sequence-level entry point into the MGI Database.

VARK - a guide to learning styles

Highlights

VARK is a questionnaire that provides users, e.g. students, with a profile of their learning preferences (Visual, Aural, Read/write, Kinesthetic or Multimodal). The insights gained can be useful for students to develop additional, effective strategies for learning, and for teachers in their choice of teaching methodologies. The questionnaire is available in several languages.

VARK is available free in the Internet for use in student or faculty development, but first seek permission (see the VARK website), and always give attribution to the source.
