Description

A list containing a brief description of traits data retrieved by the various databases; it's used as a hash table by some internal tr8 functions.

Format

Each element contains a key which express the short name for the traits that TR8 can download and to each key a three-elements vector is associated, which contains a shorter code for the trait, a long description of the trait and the reference database
