adwave: Wavelet Analysis of Genomic Data from Admixed Populations

Implements wavelet-based approaches for describing population admixture. Principal Components Analysis (PCA) is used to define the population structure and produce a localized admixture signal for each individual. Wavelet summaries of the PCA output describe variation present in the data and can be related to population-level demographic processes. For more details, see J Sanderson, H Sudoyo, TM Karafet, MF Hammer and MP Cox. 2015. Reconstructing past admixture processes from local genomic ancestry using wavelet transformation. Genetics 200:469-481 <doi:10.1534/genetics.115.176842>.
