Given a matrix with two adjacent columns for each locus (e.g. LOCUS1a, LOCUS1b, LOCUS2a, LOCUS2b, ...)
containing codominant alelles, where individual genotypes are in rows, find the proportion of shared alleles
(Bowcock et al., 1994) among individuals using functions in the adegenet package.
This is a convenience function that wraps adegenet routines.
Note that any type of genetic distance matrix can be used in MEMGENE, and the proportion of shared alleles metric is not a requirement.

Return a genind object rather than the proportion of shared alleles genetic distance matrix. A genind object can be used by various functions in the adegenet package.
First prepares the alleles matrix into a format that can be converted using functions in the adegenet package to the
propShared is then run on this object.
