quipu: Summary charts of micro satellite profiles for a set of biological samples

Gene banks increasingly use molecular markers for routine characterization of plant collections and farmer managed diversity. The gene bank of the International Potato Center presently uses a micro-satellite marker kit to produce molecular profiles for potato accessions. We have been searching for a compact graphical representation that shows both molecular diversity and accession characteristics - thus permitting biologists and collection curators to have a simple way to interpret molecular data. Inspired by the ancient Andean data recording system we devised a graph that allows for standardized representation while leaving room for updates of the marker kit and the collection of accessions. The graph has been used in several catalogs of potatoes.
