GESTE 2.0 – GEnetic STructure inference based on genetic and Environmental data

GESTE 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

GESTE (GEnetic STructure inference based on genetic and Environmental data) is a Bayesian method to evaluate the effect that biotic and abiotic environmental factors (geographic distance, language, temperature, altitude, local population sizes, etc.) have on the genetic structure of populations. It can also be used to study spatial population processes, such as range expansions, by simply introducing longitude and latitude as the explanatory variables.

SAMOVA 1.0 – Define the Genetic Structure of Population

SAMOVA 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

SAMOVA (Spatial Analysis of MOlecular VAriance) implements an approach to define groups of populations that are geographically homogeneous and maximally differentiated from each other. As a by-product, it also leads to the identification of genetic barriers between these groups. The method is based on a simulated annealing procedure that aims at maximizing the proportion of total genetic variance due to differences between groups of populations
