Improved BGD system for ongoing annotation of the bovine genome. The new features are 1) support for direct writebacks from the user's Apollo client to the intermediate Chado database, 2) support for launching and installing Apollo using Java WebStart, and 3) support for database auditing and rollbacks. Other components (e.g. genome browser, gene pages, BLAST site) are the same as those shown in Figure 1, and are not shown here. Red lines indicate steps that require human intervention. Gray lines indicate steps that do not require human intervention.
