Stain matching computation

(experimental version). New feature, ver 21.14, Nov 98


Choose "Stain matching" from the main menu.

Move among the boxes with keystrokes (space, tab, enter, shift-tab, arrow keys) or with the mouse.

Entering locus name

Type any abbreviation and the program will guess the locus. If it cannot guess uniquely, it will pop up a choice box.

Entering alleles

Type in alleles as usual. (Only possible on a line that has a locus name entered.)

NOTE: If the allele resolution filter (ARF) is defined, then there will be a warning BEEP for any allele not mentioned in the ARF.


Frequencies are calculated automatically, using the usual rules that are controlled by "Case Options" – including "Count this allele how many times?" Homozygotes are counted double.


means one of the NRC formulas mentioned above. Choice is by abbreviation, with pop-up list if the abbreviation is not clear.

Theta, or F

can be typed in. The "1/" option also applies here. So for example if modality=relative and you want to consider a 1/16 relative, just type "16".
