Map Study module Comparative module Report module Workbench


We learn by comparing things: Why are these the same? Where are these different? But sometimes trying to make comparisons is tedious and difficult. This is certainly true when trying to evaluate the maps produced by different studies; they may use different populations, different markers, and evaluate different traits.

With PHENOMAPTM, however, you can easily align results across studies and use this to broaden your understanding of the trait, filter candidate genes, or identify additional markers for targeting your analysis. Your comparisons can even span multiple species, letting you take advantage of investments in well-studied model organisms.

A few well-chosen comparisons can shed new light on a problem. Your mapping and QTL information become dramatically more useful with PHENOMAPTM.

Below is a quick overview of the primary components:

Map Study module

Displays and aligns all the information associated with one or more mapping studies from the same species, making it easy to detect regions of QTL overlap.

Comparative module

Supports the analysis and integration of map and QTL information from the same or different species. You can merge maps and search for syntenic regions in other species.

Report module

Generates a number of textual and graphical reports. Many of the reports integrate data across genera and are a powerful tool for comparative investigations.


Serves as a holding area for subsets of mapping studies, linkage groups and quantitative traits. Perform targeted queries against different segments of the database and compare the results.

PHENOMAPTM is available in both Desktop and Enterprise versions.
