developmental and stem cell biologists – manage your fly stocks and crosses

Posted by , on 26 February 2016

Some time ago I wrote about a webpage I’ve created to manage genetic fly crosses.

In that past post, I’ve promised a new version of the software, and I’m happy to announce it here.

The software can be reached under the address Many many things changed from the previous version, some features:

  • User accounts
  • Your crosses are saved by default, you can use the software as a sort of digital genetic notebook
  • Crosses can be shared with colleagues (or with a qr code on a poster during a conference)
  • Cross history can be followed over generations
  • User can establish an own stock list and cross directly from it
  • Several visualisations of a cross: punnett square, genotypes, curly bracket view
  • Smartphone friendly

A web app as complex as is quite a code monster, and as I’m the only developer (for now), there might still be some glitches. I usually can solve them quickly, so let me know about it :)

I hope this tool will be useful for the community.

One thought on “ – manage your fly stocks and crosses”

  1. Hi there Mario!

    First of all thank you for this app from a fellow UniBasel student :) It has greatly helped me to stay organized during my work. Currently, I am writing my Master thesis, and it would be really helpful to have an option to download all the cross schemes as a pdf to paste into my text. How would you recommend to input the cross schemes into my word doc most efficiently?

    Thanks again.
