In order to do this, we are publishing databases with pedigree information for different breeds, with functions for calculations of the inbreeding coefficient and pedigree analyses. We also publish articles related to these topics. Along the way, we will probably add articles about other health issues and breeding issues as well, for the education of breeders.

Databases

PawPeds' databases are maintained by people who are specializing in a particular breed (or breeds). We call them database maintainers and they work in a self-developed program that we call PawPedsClient. The program is connected to a central database which makes it possible to have more than one person entering data at the same time. Many of our databases also have significantly more than one database maintainer.

About the program

To present the pedigree databases on the web, we use a self-developed program that we call Netpedigree. The program is under constant development, and from time to time, updates are made to introduce new features, test new ideas and correct problems.
