ABSTRACT
Indigenous (native) breeds of livestock have higher disease resistance and adaptation to the environment due to high genetic diversity. Even though their extinction rate is accelerated due to the increase of commercial breeds, natural disaster, and civil war, there is a lack of well-established databases for the native breeds. Thus, we constructed the native pig and chicken breed database (NPCDB) which integrates available information on the breeds from around the world. It is a nonprofit public database aimed to provide information on the genetic resources of indigenous pig and chicken breeds for their conservation. The NPCDB (http://npcdb.snu.ac.kr/) provides the phenotypic information and population size of each breed as well as its specific habitat. In addition, it provides information on the distribution of genetic resources across the country. The database will contribute to understanding of the breed's characteristics such as disease resistance and adaptation to environmental changes as well as the conservation of indigenous genetic resources.

No MeSH data available.

The webpage of native pig and chicken database (NPCDB). NPCDB is available at http://npcdb.snu.ac.kr/. This is a noncommercial public database designed to support research, improvement of genetic resources, and conservation. (a) The ‘Native Pig’ and ‘Native Chicken’ page provides information on the name of the breed, physical appearance, and its distribution. Detailed information of each breed is also available by clicking on the link. (b) The ‘Country’ page, users can be visualized the presence of indigenous breeds through the world map. When a user clicks on a specific country, information on the breeds and their pictures are provided. (c) The ‘Summary Statistics’ page offers summary information of the data through tables and figures. It has information about the accumulated data of what type of breed to country and continent giving the users an overview of all the data stored in NPCDB.

Mentions: This database displays the population size of the breeds in each country, their status of conservation, and phenotypic information. The interface of NPCDB consists of five main menus: ‘Home’, ‘Native Pig’, ‘Native Chicken’, ‘Country’, and ‘Summary Statistics’. Users can easily obtain information about the indigenous pig and chicken breeds from the ‘Native Pig’ and ‘Native Chicken’ menus, while the ‘Country’ menu provides users with a quick overview of breed distribution and breed possession in each country. Summary information of species can be obtained from the ‘Summary Statistics’ menu (Figure 1).
