nprcgenekeepr: Genetic Tools for Colony Management

Provides genetic tools for colony management and is a derivation of the work in Amanda Vinson and Michael J Raboin (2015) <> "A Practical Approach for Designing Breeding Groups to Maximize Genetic Diversity in a Large Colony of Captive Rhesus Macaques ('Macaca' 'mulatto')". It provides a 'Shiny' application with an exposed API. The application supports five groups of functions: (1) Quality control of studbooks contained in text files or 'Excel' workbooks and of pedigrees within 'LabKey' Electronic Health Records (EHR); (2) Creation of pedigrees from a list of animals using the 'LabKey' EHR integration; (3) Creation and display of an age by sex pyramid plot of the living animals within the designated pedigree; (4) Generation of genetic value analysis reports; and (5) Creation of potential breeding groups with and without proscribed sex ratios and defined maximum kinships.
