R package for population genetic analysis of clonal/sexual organisms

in R package

Poppr provides open-source, cross-platform tools for quick analysis of population genetic data enabling focus on data analysis and interpretation. While there are a plethora of packages for population genetic analysis, few are able to offer quick and easy analysis of populations with mixed reproductive modes. Poppr’s main advantage is the ease of use and integration with other packages such as adegenet and vegan, including support for novel methods such as clone correction, multilocus genotype analysis, calculation of Bruvo’s distance, and the index of association. New features in version 2.0 include generation of minimum spanning networks with reticulation, calculation of the index of association for genomic data, and filtering multilocus genotypes based on genetic distance.
