Biological data repositories are widely applied to assist researchers in effectively storing and retrieving data. The recent developments in molecular biology intensified the need for well-designed biological databases, which can be queried without increasing the computational time. This study describes the design of a biological databank for the primary data collection phase, which involves collection and storing of genotypic and phenotypic information of a number of South African Angora goat herds, which will be utilised in a QTL study for mohair traits.
