PGEToolbox: A Matlab Toolbox for Population Genetics and Evolution | Academic Article individual record
abstract

Assessing genetic diversity within populations is vital for understanding the nature of evolutionary processes at the molecular level. PGEToolbox is a Matlab-based open-sourced software package for data analysis in population genetics. The main features of this software are as follows: 1) capability for handling both DNA sequence polymorphisms and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), which include genotype and haplotype data; 2) exhaustive population genetic analyses and neutrality tests based on the coalescent theory; 3) extendibility and scalability for complex and large genome-wide datasets; 4) simple yet effective graphic user interfaces and sophisticated visualization of data and results. For academic uses, PGEToolbox is available free of charge at http://bioinformatics.org/pgetoolbox.
