PEDIGREE DRAWING PROGRAMS

COPE (COllaborative Pedigree drawing Environment)
Description Includes a Java program for drawing pedigrees and a standardized system for pedigree storage. Unlike other existing pedigree programs, this software is particularly intended for epidemiologists in the sense that it allows customized automatic drawing of large numbers of pedigrees and remote and distributed consultation of pedigrees.

CYRILLIC
Description (version 3 (Oct 1999)) pedigree drawing with fully integrated risk analysis and support for industry standard databases (MS Access and Corel Paradox). designed for genetic counselors and others who work with patients. if you use genetic marker data you need Cyrillic 2. (version 2) this version of Cyrillic draws pedigrees, works with genetic marker data, lets you do haplotyping and allows exports to a range of linkage analysis packages.

GGT (Graphical GenoTyping package) (see also, MAPCOMP )
Description (version July 2002) GGT combines genetic map data and locus data to display Graphical Genotypes. Data can be viewed by individual or by linkage group, and sorted on markers. Statistics are calculated and simultaneous filtering/selection on multiple linkage groups is possible. Output of hi-res genotype drawings directly to printer or to emf/jpeg/bitmap image. A module for constructing GGT-datafiles from common mapmaker/joinmap style formatted data is available.

MAPCHART (Windows software for the graphical presentation of linkage maps and QTLs)
Description (version 2.0) Produces charts of genetic linkage and QTL data. The charts are composed of a sequence of vertical bars representing the linkage groups or chromosomes. On these bars the positions of loci are indicated, and next to the bars QTL intervals and QTL graphs can be shown. MapChart reads the linkage information (i.e. the locus and QTL names and their positions) from text files. Many options to adapt the charts to different purposes. Can produce graphic files (enhanced windows metafile format) which can be enhanced with other MS-Windows software.

PED (PEdigree Drawing software)
Description (version 4.2) Powerful pedigree drawing program with two drawing modes: Input mode for fast and automatic drawing; edit mode for text annotations, legends, special symbols. Both input and edit mode provide auto numbering, auto resizing of symbols and fonts, and zooming. PED 4.2a complies with the "Recommendations for standardized human pedigree nomenclature" proposed by the PSTF (Bennet RL et al, Am J Hum Genet 56:745-752,1995). Apart from fully sizeable printed output, pedigrees can be exported as metafiles to virtually any Windows word processor or drawing program.
