RDCRN Pedigree Drawing Tool

What is it?

The RDCRN Pedigree Drawing Tool is based on pedigreejs. It allows for the creation, viewing, and editing of pedigrees within a browser. This pedigree can then be saved in various data formats, as well as SVG and PNG images.

We are currently working on improving the out-of-box code to fix bugs and improve functionality. Please see our list of Recent Updates and Upcoming Bug Fixes/Features.
