DnaSP v5: a software for comprehensive analysis of DNA polymorphism data

Bioinformatics. 2009 Jun 1;25(11):1451-2. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btp187. Epub 2009 Apr 3.


Motivation: DnaSP is a software package for a comprehensive analysis of DNA polymorphism data. Version 5 implements a number of new features and analytical methods allowing extensive DNA polymorphism analyses on large datasets. Among other features, the newly implemented methods allow for: (i) analyses on multiple data files; (ii) haplotype phasing; (iii) analyses on insertion/deletion polymorphism data; (iv) visualizing sliding window results integrated with available genome annotations in the UCSC browser.
