Plant and Animal Genome XXIII Conference, 10-14 January 2015Kyazma was present at the recent PAG Conference in San Diego, CA, USA. If you were there too, and visited Kyazma's booth and/or Kyazma's workshop: thank you for your interest.
Next linkage analysis courses scheduled for 18-20 and 23-25 March 2015You can now register for participation in the courses on genetic linkage mapping and QTL analysis.
Registration is open until full up, so register as soon as possible.
Maintenance updates of JoinMap ® 4 and 4.1[31 July 2013]
Updates of JoinMap 4 and 4.1 were released with a useful new feature: a new Grouping node menu function 'Assign Identical Loci to Their Groups'. Please read more about the details in the Release notes. The updates are available for free for licensed users.
Maintenance update of MapQTL ® 6[12 March 2013]

About Kyazma®Kyazma was founded in the spring of 2003. The company's goal is to serve the genomics research community with software and courses that may assist scientists in getting the most out of their genetic mapping experiments.
Statistical genomics develops powerful methods for genetical linkage mapping and QTL analysis. These methods are usually too specialised, too technical in statistics, for the many experimental geneticists and molecular biologists to thoroughly understand. It is here that Kyazma likes to assist with software tools that provide easy-as-possible access to statistical genomics methods.
Since 2003 Kyazma has taken over the development of the software packages JoinMap ® and MapQTL ® from Biometris of Plant Research International. Kyazma focuses on implementing the latest powerful statistical genomics methods into easy to use, stable and fast software. Kyazma takes care of the distribution and support of JoinMap and MapQTL, for which you will find all necessary information on this web site.
Kyazma provides introductory courses on genetic linkage mapping and QTL analysis in order to make using the software even more accessible.
