Gene[rate] Tools

Tools for handling and analysing data with ambiguities

These programs expect plain text files in UNIFORMAT v3 as input. A download link to the results file is provided once the execution is completed (on screen and/or by email). Read more about these tools (and see examples of input files) in the usage overview.

Please note that the results files are deleted after 48 hours, therefore if you have not saved your results file you have to run the programs again.


Checks UNIFORMAT files for formating errors and performs automatic translations of allele and haplotype names (new nomenclature, expansion of valid abbreviations,..).

Launch Uniformate

Basic statistics new

Provides all the basic statistics for one and two-locus, including allele and haplotype frequencies, tests for Hardy-Weinberg, neutrality and linkage disequilibrium, and graphs. Please note that this tool replaces both One-locus summary and Two-locus summary.

Launch Basic statistics

CWD viewer

Status and extended information from the EFI common and well-documented catalog.

Launch CWD viewer

Regional analysis

Performs genetic comparisons of multiple population samples from selected world regions by means of non-metrical mutidimensional scaling (NMDS) analyses.

Launch Regional analysis

Charts & maps

Provides frequency charts and maps for specific alleles or haplotypes in selected world regions.

Launch Charts & maps

Family phaser new

Establishes haplotype phase for family data. Input is UNIFORMAT file with a modified identifier. There are no limits on the number of families included in each file.

Launch Family phaser

File conversions

Converts data files from different formats (tabulated, columnar, pdf files of Luminex reports, Arlequin projects) into UNIFORMAT, and vice versa.

Launch File conversions

(Free) frequency estimation

Calcutes allele or haplotype frequency estimates under alternative models to Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium (e.g. inbreeding) and/or for multiple loci.

Launch frequency estimation


Calculates phenotypes from probe lists and reactivity data and returns a UNIFORMAT file.
