Welcome to the Field Genetics web site, home of the parentage analysis program Cervus.

Cervus is the leading software package for parentage analysis in plant and animal populations. It combines a robust likelihood-based method with a simple graphical interface and has been used by thousands of scientists around the world since its launch in 1998.

Cervus 3.0, released in 2006, features new, more powerful likelihood equations and allows parentage testing for parent pairs in addition to standard maternity and paternity testing.
