Web Pedigree Databases
Create dynamic web pedigree databases using the Alfirin system.
Decorative Borders + Corners
Our printed pedigrees include artistic borders and corners - for that extra special embellishment. Have you ever used an external pedigree service simply because you didn't think you could create sufficiently professional pedigrees with a pedigree program? Now you can keep your own pedigree records AND produce the quality pedigrees you want without paying
Breeders Assistant has fields for recording genotypes - e.g. breed genotype, disease genotype, etc. With many versions of BA, in particular the dog and cat versions, we provide 'user friendly' screens for selecting genotypes rather than keying them in directly. These are carefully customized for most of the common breeds of cat and dog.
BA can predict genotypes and phenotypes of offspring based on the genotypes of parents. E.g. to include a mating prediction in a trial pedigree.
Import From Text Pedigrees
Do you ever find yourself entering a text pedigree into your database by hand? Not with Breeders Assistant - it can import them directly - adding the separate records for new ancestors and merging known ancestors with existing records. And it can import many different styles of text pedigree. You can even design templates for new pedigree formats.
PDF Print Merging
Breeders Assistant can merge-print external PDF documents with data from a BA database, printing the merged document in a single pass. This is primarily intended for printing the likes of show entry and litter registration forms using genuine PDF forms supplied by the registries. We include a comprehensive merge-form designer so you can add your own PDF merge documents, merging any fields from your database to any specific location. Very useful for organizations who need to print on highly custom forms.
Along with our support for decorative borders & corners you can include calligraphic text for many common wordings used in pedigrees - such as 'Pedigree Certificate', 'Trial Pedigree' etc. We include many calligraphic typefaces to choose from.
Comprehensive Cat Genetics
BA for cats includes genetic configurations for over thirty five of the most common breeds of cat, covering both coat color inheritance and congenital diseases. We provide coverage of over thirty congenital defects for which the mode of inheritance is known.
Comprehensive Dog Genetics
BA for dogs includes genetic configurations for over fifty of the most common breeds of dog, covering both coat color inheritance and congenital diseases. We provide coverage of over seventy congenital defects for which the mode of inheritance is known.
The 'publisher feature' is a means to create restricted access BA databases. Its designed for people and organizations who wish to distribute animal data to third parties with restrictions on its use and further redistribution. Typical uses include breed clubs who wish to distribute club breed data to their members whilst being sure it cannot be redistributed to others. Please see also our open data access policy.
Inbreeding & Common Ancestors
BA has very fast calculation of Wright's coefficient of inbreeding, to a maximum of 60 generations. We can produce reports of ancestor circularities (self-parenting) - individually for specific records or across a whole database. BA doesn't just calculate imbreeding for a single animal at a time - you can even tabulate it for all animals in the database. You can create reports on common ancestors, view their individual contributions to the inbreeding coefficient, tag the common ancestors, and more.
Polygenic Inheritance Modelling
BA can model polygenic traits using configrable value ranges e.g. for recording hip dysplasia using either the OFA (American) or BVA (UK) coding schemes. It can perform various statistical analyses on these including 2 forms of covariance analysis.
Gene Inheritance Probabilities
We can estimate the probability of gene inheritance based on the known genotypes of the ancestors. Useful for deducing the likelihood of carrier gene inheritance etc.
Breeders Assistant can detect genetic inconsistencies between parent and offspring - e.g. detect when an animal's genotype is impossible given the stated genotypes of the parents.
Breeders Assistant creates three types of web pedigrees - static HTML, image pedigrees and dynamic web pedigree databases.
BA can produce a circular pedigree - where the ancestors are presented in concentric rings rather than the more typical tabular layout.
Breeders Assistant is supplied with a large range of standard forms - pedigrees, contracts, pedigree cover sheets, trial pedigrees etc. You can customize them using our forms designer, or add completely new ones.
Advanced Printer Control
Use our advanced printer configuration mechanism for fine control of printer and paper settings on a document by document basis. Print on different printers, with different paper sizes, feed trays etc within constantly changing your printer settings.
