2b) Cross-references to eagle-i have been discontinued

2c) Cross-references to TCB have been discontinued

The Tick Cell Biobank (TCB) used to be hosted at the Pirbright Institute and is now at Liverpool University but does not currently provide individual access to information pages on specific cell lines. We have therefore removed the cross-references and added a wen link to the home page of the TCB at Liverpool in the relevant entries.
