Pedigree With Ancestors Highlighted By Inbreeding

Pedigree With Custom Ancestor Highlighting Based On Coat Color

If your answer is 'yes' to any of the following, then the Professional Edition (or, possibly, the Extended Edition) is more suited to your needs than the Personal Edition:

  • You don't want your personal name appearing on the pedigree. The Personal Edition is licensed to a personal name which will appear in small text beneath every printed pedigree. You supply the license name when placing your order, and it is fixed: you cannot change it. With the Professional and Extended Editions the license name may be a breeding name or kennel/cattery/organization name etc. With the Extended Edition it is possible for the license name to be entirely removed from pedigrees.
  • You want to use the multi-tagging feature.
  • You have a need for more than 75,000 animal records in any one pedigree database.
  • You want to take advantage of custom ancestor highlighting or inbreeding highlighting.
  • You wish to predict colors etc. in matings based on color genotypes.
  • You do not need to use any of the features specific to the Extended Edition, such as any of the advanced population genetics features e.g. mate selection by inbreeding minimization.

If your answer is 'yes' to any of the following, then the Extended Edition is more suited to your needs than the Professional Edition:

  • You need to use any of the advanced population genetics features such as prospective mate selection (e.g. to select matings to minimize inbreeding or maximize retention of genetic diversity in the breeding population), or computation of a wide a range of population genetics metrics such as mean kinships.
  • You wish to make commercial use of output from the product (e.g. run a pedigree printing service).
  • You need to use auto-increment on text fields such as the registration number.
  • You want to remove your license name entirely from printed pedigrees. With the Personal and Professional Editions your license name will appear in small text beneath every printed pedigree. With the Extended Edition it is possible to have this removed. This needs a special installation code from Tenset; these codes are only issued to Extended Edition customers upon request.
