Managing Pedigree Information

Currently, RosBREED's 12 demonstration breeders are using Pedimap to visualize breeding data across pedigrees (click here for more information regarding this software and to request a free copy). A presentation introducing Pedimap software was given at the 2010 American Society for Horticultural Science annual conference. The Pedimap user manual and Fruit Breedomics Booklet on Pedimap usage is also available at no cost.

Most recently, The Fruit Breedomics project has developed a comprehensive set of video trainings for using PediMap for breeding purposes. 

Other Software

A series of online tools,  the Breeders' Toolbox for Rosaceous Crops, is available on the Genome Database for Rosaceae (GDR) to assist Rosaceae breeders and geneticists in decision making for crosses, efficient use of DNA markes and dicovery of new trait-marker associations. It includes a useful tutorial and several online applications:

In addition, the Genome Database for Rosaceae also allows breeders to store breeding data to facilitate use of this database and its tools in decision making.
