Celestial3D is a software tool for the graphical display of familial information that is being developed by the Laboratory for Genetic Epidemiology at the Western Australian Institute for Medical Research.



As the number of genealogical and family-based datasets around the world continues to increase, there is an increasing need for software tools to analyse, manage and record the associated data.

Graphical techniques are becoming essential for analysing large amounts of data, to improve upon the limitations of traditional text-based techniques, particularly in representing complex data interrelationships.

A graphical presentation of familial data (for example, phenotypic, genotypic or demographic) and pedigree structures can show important information in a far less cluttered fashion, enabling rapid analysis and interpretation of results.

This work is part of an Asthma Foundation Research Project.
