MQConvert: MapQTL ® Project conversion utility

The program MQConvert converts projects of MapQTL version 4.0 or 5, so that they can be used in MapQTL version 6. The converted project allows inspection of all current results and of course performing new analyses with MapQTL 6.

MapQTL version 7 can convert a project made with version 6, so that it can open the converted project.

The conversion is not done completely. One minor limitation is that any cofactor monitor file of an (r)MQM analysis does not convert to the "Results (cont'd)" tabsheet; it will simply be copied into the project directory as a text file, thus the information does not get lost. Another small limitation is that the results of each group of each trait in a MapQTL 4.0 project is treated as a separate session in the converted project (as in fact it was in MapQTL 4.0). It is advised to compare the original with the converted project.

If you come across a problem with the conversion of any normal project,
then please contact Kyazma at <support(at)>.

The program is available free of charge under a few limiting conditions.
