Genotype Name uniquely identifies a genotype and it can
be changed once the genotype has dependant data.
Double Quote ( " ) and Pipe ( | ) must not be used in the genotype name
as it is used as seperator by the DiGGer that is used by Katmandoo to
generate trial design
While adding new genotype (either using Setup Form
Import Genotype Wizard
), genotype is validated using Smart-Genotype-Name Checking
process. Suppose Genotype
Name is "ABC_2_E" then the validation processes are:
- Remove any character EXCEPT a-z and 0-9 from the Genotype Name ie it will be "ABC2E"
which is Smart Genotype Name.
- Load identical genotype names or aliases that have the characters of the smart genotype name.
- Remove any character EXCEPT a-z and 0-9 from the EXISTING genotype name or alias
it with Smart Genotype Name ie ABC2E.
- If any identical genotype exists in the database, then ask user to confirm
whether to accept the genotype as a new genotype.
Though Selection History is part of the
, it is optional.
If the Selection History of the new Genotype is given, system checks duplicate Genotype
Name with Selection History and Genus otherwise duplicate checking uses Genotype
Name and Genus only.
Pedigree of the Genotype.
While importing data, if the source file has Pedigree in Purdy Naming format, then
the pedigree is parsed to generated ancestors of the genotypes. In this case the
pedigree textvalue is not saved into database, rather it is generated dynamically.
But if the pedigree in the source is not in Purdy Naming format, then the pedigree
is treated as a textvalue and saved into [ pedigree ] column of Genotype table in
Visit importing genotype with

Species of the genotype. It is optional.
Female and Male Parent
Female and Male Parent of the Genotype. Visit

Origination of the genotype ie the organisation that owns the Genotype.
The following information must exist before a Genotype can be added into the database.
Note: Although Unknown Organisation can be used it
is preferable to add the Organisation before adding a new genotype. This avoids
changing at a later date.
The genus name of the genotype must exist in the genus table.
- Organisation: The origin of the genotype
ie organisation which owns the genotype must exist in organisation table. If the
organisation is not avaialbe, then
Unknown Organisation should be used.
The Genotype Navigator
allows the user
to quickly find the genotypes of the genus
that can be used in the selected Sub-system
. The nodes of the navigator are
generated using the Genus Names which are retrieved from the database. The nodes
are sorted into genus name
Important Note: Katmandoo automatically selects the node that was selected
last time (ie before closing the navigator or Katmadoo).
Use [ Task > Genotype
> Manage Genotype ] to activate the genotype navigator.
- Click here for
an illustration of the navigator template.
Important Note: ".ALL Genus"
node (not shown in the snapshot) is displayed when logged-in user has System Administrative
permission (eg dba) and the database has more than one genus. When ".All Genus" node is clicked, all the genotypes of the
genus in the navigator are listed, but add/edit/repeat operations are disabled in
- Click it to close the navigator as well as the genotype mainform.
- Filter value "*" means display all the genus (that user has permission to use)
and genotypes as well as 0-9 and A-Z nodes.
- Genus node of the Navigator. Click it to dispay all the Genotypes
of the Genus.
- ".ALL Demo Genotypes" node of the genus "Demo". Click it to dispay all the
Genotypes of the Genus (ie Demo in this snapshot).
- OR click on one of these nodes to display genotypes starting with the node text
- Click on "A" to display all the genotypes with genotype name starting from "A".
To display genotypes in the Genotype Main Form, follow the steps below:
- Genotype Navigator with the loaded
Genus and species nodes.
- Click here for
an illustration of the navigator template.
- Genotype Main Form displaying the Genotypes of the selected species.
- Click here for
an illustration of the main form template.
- Genotype subform displays Virtual column information
of the selected Genotype in the Genotype Main Form (Belara
in the snapshot).
- Genotype Toolbar (new)
- Alias of selected genotype.
- Trait performance of the selected genotype.
To add/edit a Genotype, follow the steps below :
- Select a Genotype in the Genotype
main form to modify.
- Use [ Record > Add Genotype ] or [ Record > Edit Genotype ] or [ Record >
Repeat Genotype ] to load the Genotype Setup Form to add/edit a Genotype.
- Click here
for an illustration of the setup form template.
Illustrative snapshot (of First Page):
- Genotype Name which is disabled when the Genotype
has has dependant data. Click
here for information on editing restricted value.
- Pedigree of the Genotype. Since the Pedigree was parsed
using Purdy Naming convention, it is generated dynamically using its female and
male parent and their ancestors (if data is available).
- Either type the new species name in the text box or select a from the existing
- Organisation that is the owner of the Genotype.
- Click it to select the Genotype Color which will be used to display Genotype in
Genotype Graphical Display.
- To select a female parent, uncheck the "N/A" checkbox to enable the Female Parent
combobox, and select the parent from the list.
- Click it to display Search Genotype
that can be used to find/load genotype to use as parent.
- To select a male parent, uncheck the "N/A" checkbox to enable the Male Parent combobox,
and select the parent from the list.
Illustrative snapshot (of Second Page):
- Genotype Notes (maximum 6600 characters).
- Virtual column name (in second step of
the wizard). Click
here for information on the Virtual column data entry data grid.
- Important Note: If there is not any virtual column for
GenotypeFactor table, then this datagrid is disabled.
- A value for the displayed Virtual column can be entered on this part of the data
- Alias of the selected Genotype.
A genotype alias name is part of alternate
in GenotypeAlias table and it can be used to represent the genotype.
A genotype can have one or more aliases and an alias can be associated with one
or more genotypes.
Please use [ Record > Update Genotype Alias ] to make any changes on genotype alias.
Please use [ Record > Delete Genotype Alias ] to delete the selected genotype alias.
GenotypeAliasName can be used to import Genotype Alias can be imported while import
genotype. The aliases of a genotypes can be separated by comma (default) in GenotypeAliasName.
Alias is used while importing data find the genotype used in the source file if
the genotype name used in the source file does not exist as Genotype name.
To merge data of a genotype into another genotype, use [ Record > Merge
Genotype ] in the Genotype main form
- Read this important note!
- Master Genotype is the one that will hold data of the Slave Genotype.
- Master GenotypeId replaces all the Slave GenotypeIds in the database.
- Slave Genotype is saved as an alias of Master Genotype.
- Slave GenotypeId.
- Authorised token.
- User must enter the exact authorised token
(case-sensitive) to merge data.
- Tips: Copy the token to a text file. Next time, copy the token from the text file
and pasting here.
- After carefully entering all the required information, click [ Merge... ] button.
- Pedigree, Selection History, Genotype Note and other
information of the Slave Genotype will be discarded
- THIS PROCESS CAN NOT BE ROLLED-BACK!
