The items under the Search and Tools menus are discussed in other tutorials, but here we want to highlight the Data, General and Help menus. Under the Data menu [G] you can see a data overview, learn how to submit data, information about the types of genetic markers in CarrotOmics, and transcript and expression data. A summary overview of all data in CarrotOmics which can be broken down by species and/or data type is found on the Data Overview page. Under Data Submission, there are details about submitting data to CarrotOmics. CarrotOmics will accept published data and we highly recommend contacting us before starting to fill in the data templates. There are two links to the contact form on this page.

On the Marker Types page, there is a table of the marker types that are in CarrotOmics. The markers have been generally grouped by the same technologies and we have provided a link to a reference that describes the marker technology.
