With PedigreeXP, detect at a glance the X-linked disease carrier females. Refine the diagnosis to inform the family about the risks for their descendants.
PedigreeXP has a feature for automatic detection of carrier females when the X-rules setting is applied. The feature can be switched on in the properties panel: Apply X rules.
X-linked recessive traits are not clinically manifested when there is a normal copy of the gene. The X-chromosome is always transmitted from an affected father to his daughter and PedigreeXP can therefore help the users by automatically marking them as carriers.
A carrier mother who has a mutation in a gene on the X chromosome can transmit the X chromosome with this mutation to her children. PedigreeXP will help the user by applying a suspicion to the children until more information can be entered.
