At present, we are planning to implement the database structure in
Sybase on a Sun, but could change platforms or environment in order
to incorporate software that already exists. We are particularly
interested in generating graphical images of pedigrees of families
with disorders from some type of text output which could be generated
by a standard relational database package. We are aware of several
commerical programs as well as Pedraw.
We are interested in communicating with anyone else who might
have software for this type of use or be working in this area.
Please respond via E-mail, we'll post a summary of responses to
Thanks in advance....
