mPopTag

:: DESCRIPTION

mPopTag (Multi-Population Tag SNP Picker) is a tool used to select or evaluate linkage disequilibrium (LD) tag SNPs for multiple populations. The program analyzes patterns of LD–measured by composite linkage disequilibrium (CLD) or r2–between polymorphic sites in a genome region for multiple populations. It also uses an agreedy algorithm to select a single set of near-minimum numbers of LD tag SNPs for multiple populations.
