introgress provides functions for analyzing introgression
of genotypes between divergent, hybridizing lineages, including
estimating genomic clines from multi-locus genotype data and testing for
deviations from neutral expectations. Functions are also provided for
maximum likelihood estimation of molecular hybrid index and graphical analysis.
introgress includes several core functions that are needed to
implement the genomic clines method of Gompert and Buerkle
prepare.data estimates the counts of alleles
inherited from each of two parental population at each locus for admixed
individuals. These estimates are based on genotype data from admixed
population(s) and specified parental populations. The function
est.h uses the list output returned from
prepare.data and the raw genotype data for the admixed
population(s) to compute maximum likelihood estimates of hybrid
index. The list output returned by
prepare.data and the
data.frame output returned by
est.h are used to estimate
genomic clines, which is accomplished with the function
genomic.clines function includes
arguments specifying whether significance testing is performed and the
procedure used to generate null expectations for significance
clines.plot function provides graphical
output for genomic clines analysis similar to Gompert and Buerkle
(2009a, 2009b). In addition, the
introgress package includes the
compare.clines function to contrast patterns of
introgression between hybrid zones.
introgress implements additional functions for graphical analysis
of hybrid zones.
triangle.plot plots the relationship
between hybrid index and inter-class heterozygosity
calc.intersp.het) for an admixed population. The
mk.image function produces a graphical representation of
marker ancestry allowing visual inspection of variation in patterns of
introgression among markers.

introgress functions, please see the appropriate function help pages.
