Pedigree Viewer Publisher's description
from Brian Kinghorn
The program reads your simple data file and displays the full pedigree structure on the screen.
The program reads your simple data file and displays the full pedigree structure on the screen. Each animal is represented by its identity, or its name, or by its value for any of the traits in the data file. You can display a large pedigree of thousands of animals all on the screen at the one time. Data are overlapped on the screen for such large pedigrees, but in one mode an individual's information is highlighted as the mouse cursor passes over. You can ask to find an animal(s) by identity, or by merit or merit range for a given trait.
A single click changes between fields in the data file, or displays just relatives (of chosen degree) of the animal clicked. With one more click you can then organise the pedigree picture to be most clear for just those animals. Animals of high merit can be shaded more brightly for numerical fields, giving quick access to those with high merit. You can also zoom into interesting parts of the pedigree (as in the example above), change the font displaying data, check for logical errors, alter the display of pedigree links and make other manipulations to give a suitable display.
Inbreeding coefficients and BLUP estimates of breeding value can be calculated and added to the list of displayable data. The program can be useful for navigating around a pedigreed data set to get a feel for its structure and any problems it might contain. Embryo transfer matings are usually easy to spot. By shading fields and possibly sorting horizontally, phenotypic and EBV trends can be quite noticeable.
