The acronym glamp is used to denote a combination of GNU Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl, Python or PHP, which now is one of the most common technologies for dynamic creation of Web pages [2,6]. In this talk we describe the use of this technology for automatic creation of medical pedigrees [1,3,4,5].

To make the drawing of pedigrees easy for medical professionals, we put TeX and PostScript processing of their input on a Web site (http://pedigree.varphi.com). In this talk we cover both technical aspects of this (integration of TeX with glamp) and the preliminary results of using this site in the education environment.
