pedigreeTools: Versatile Functions for Working with Pedigrees

Tools to sort, edit and prune pedigrees and to extract the inbreeding coefficients and the relationship matrix (includes code for pedigrees from self-pollinated species). The use of pedigree data is central to genetics research within the animal and plant breeding communities to predict breeding values. The relationship matrix between the individuals can be derived from pedigree structure following the algorithms described for example in Vazquez et al., 2010 <doi:10.2527/jas.2009-1952>.
