FinePop-package: Fine-Scale Population Analysis


Statistical tool set for population genetics. The package provides empirical Bayes estimator of Fst, Nei's Gst, Nei & Chesser's Gst, and Weir & Cockerham's theta adapted for pairwise comparison. It also provides interfaces to read and manipulate 'GENEPOP' format data files and allele/haplotype frequency format files.
