GADIST

:: DESCRIPTION

GADIST is a software of Computing Generalized-Average Based Distances. Many popular distances used for comparing binary vectors belong to the generalized-average (GA) family of distances (see this paper : Glazko, Gordon and Mushegian. The choice of optimal distance measure in genome-wide data sets. 2005. Bioinformatics for more detail). GADIST.r produces distances with any given value of the crucial lambda parameter, and computes the first four moments of their distributions. This is useful when choosing the appropriate distance measure for genome analysis
