Ancestors Report - Showing columns for kinship and partial inbreeding coefficients with respect to founders
All Relatives Report - Showing genealogical relation descriptions
PedScope will create detailed reports of relatives such as ancestors, descendants and other relations.
These reports can be produced both for a single individual - e.g. to list all ancestors to a given depth of ancestry for a specific animal. Or, they can be created for a whole group of individuals at a time, in which case the report is first run separately for all individuals in the group, and the results merged and displayed - e.g. to show all the ancestors of a chosen set of individuals. The group report will show the number of times each relative has been seen and associated statistics. E.g. if you run a group ancestors report you can see, for each ancestor, the number of animals in the group of which it is an ancestor, the closest appearance of that ancestor to any group member, the maximum % of blood it has to any animal in the group, and so on.
Ancestor reports include: the number of occurrences (of the ancestor in the individual's pedigree), the min/max generation at which the ancestor occurred, overall path lengths if it is a common ancestor, the kinship coefficient between the ancestor and the individual under study, and, if the ancestor is a founder, the partial inbreeding coefficient for that ancestor (the inbreeding due to that founder ancestor). You can order the results using any of the values reported. E.g. to find the founder ancestor with the greatest contribution to inbreeding within a given group of animals you just produce a group ancestors report, then order the table by the partial inbreeding coefficients. Ancestor reports can be limited so they only display the founders, or the common ancestors, of the individual(s) under study.
Descendant reports operate similarly to ancestor reports except they are the 'other way round', and (obviously) do not include details specific to common ancestors and founders.
You can also list all the relatives of an individual (or group) within a given generation span. For this report, PedScope first explores back through the ancestry to find the ancestors to the given depth, and then forward from all ancestors found by the given depth, resulting in a report that includes siblings, uncles/aunts, nephews/nieces, and cousins. You can filter this report to only include particular relations. The genealogical description of the relation (e.g. 'Cousin Twice Removed', 'Half Brother' etc) is given, and you can order the individuals by closeness of relation.
