Estimating effective population size from genetic data


The concept of effective population size (N_e) is an inportant concept in population genetics. It tells the "effective" number of individuals within a population, that is, those who are able to reproduce. The allele frequencies in a closed population change over time as known as genetic drift, and the magnitude of this fluctuation is directly related to N_e. This package aims to estimate this quantity from genetic samples collected over multiple time points.
