Title: Pedigree tool
Author: Panneerselvam, Madhumalar
Abstract: Collecting the family history to find the inheritance of trait is the fundamental concept in human genetics. The collected information on the family can be presented in an easily readable chart called Pedigree. Hand-drawn pedigrees become difficult when there is a large collection of known individuals in the family. Hence "Pedigree tool "was developed which automatically creates the Ancestor tree and Descendant tree. This tool also has an option to find the unrelated individuals. Inserting individual details into the database can also be done using this tool. Thus this user-friendly java based application can help researchers and genetic counselors to investigate the genetic cause of the hereditary diseases. Discovering the genes that are involved in susceptibility to the diseases will be useful for earlier diagnosis and treatment to slow or prevent the disease.
