Poppr provides tools for population genetic analysis that include genotypic diversity measures, genetic distances with bootstrap support, native organization and handling of population hierarchies, and clone correction.
To cite poppr, please use
citation("poppr"). When referring to
poppr in your manuscript, please use lower case unless it occurs at the
beginning of a sentence.
This package relies on the adegenet package.
It is built around the
genlight object. Genind objects store genetic
information in a table of allele frequencies while genlight objects store
SNP data efficiently by packing binary allele calls into single bits.
Poppr has extended these object into new objects called
respectively. These objects are designed for analysis of clonal organisms
as they add the @mlg slot for keeping track of multilocus
genotypes and multilocus lineages.
Documentation is available for any function by
?function_name in the R console. Detailed topic explanations
live in the package vignettes:
|Data import and manipulation||
|Algorithms and Equations||
|Multilocus Genotype Analysis||
Essential functions for importing and manipulating data are detailed within the Data import and manipulation vignette, details on algorithms used in poppr are within the Algorithms and equations vignette, and details for working with multilocus genotypes are in Multilocus Genotype Analysis. Examples of analyses are available in a primer written by Niklaus J. Grünwald, Zhian N. Kamvar, and Sydney E. Everhart at http://grunwaldlab.github.io/Population_Genetics_in_R.

If you find a bug and are a github user, you can submit bug reports at https://github.com/grunwaldlab/poppr/issues. Otherwise, leave a message on the groups.
