At the Wageningen Laboratory of Plant Breeding, a software package has been developed to query a simple structured database with variety pedigree data. The package, called Peditree, creates a tree-shaped representation of pedigree information and has several visualization and lookup options. Estimates of inbreeding coefficient within a pedigree or coefficients of coancestry among pedigrees can be obtained. Furthermore trait data -if available- can be linked, displayed within the pedigree tree, and used to highlight pedigree entries that comply with set criteria
