Madeline API - Developers

The service provides analysis and formatting of data reflecting human genetic background for use in studies of genetic linkage and pedigree. It converts data about genetic markers for an individual to formats compatible with common software for linkage analysis. It also supports queries against genetic pedigree datasets to aid discovery of relationships and patterns. Visualization tools generate Postscript images for rapid review of large, complex datasets. The service is also available as installed software. API methods support submission of genetic marker data for analysis. Methods analyze the pedigree links represented in the data and format it for submission to common link analyzer packages. Methods also generate SVG images representing data and defining genetic links to recorded human pedigrees.
