This leads to get empty folders or software that doesn’t execute. If this happens, try downloading at another time. If that doesn’t work, use the Contact Us page and I […]
Minor Update of v2.1 March 2018 The update corrects an error in the mac version of the software where the output file had only headers (no content) when the Frequency Output file was chosen on the interface. Please download the latest version.
NeEstimator V2 is a tool for estimating contemporary effective population size (Ne) using multi-locus diploid genotypes from population samples. By ‘contemporary’ we mean that the estimates apply to the time period(s) encompassed by the samples (ie. individuals sampled and genotyped). Version 2.1 is a major update on V2.01. The changes largely enhance the linkage disequilibrium […]
Post graduate student Andy Jones has published a new method for computing confidence intervals on genetic estimates of effective size. The NeEstimator development group is working on incoporating this new method into the software. Click here for the link to the paper.
The NeEstimator software development team has released a minor update to version 2.01. There was a typo in the v2.01 code that caused the lower jacknife confidence interval to be printed as ‘infinite’ when the upper interval was infinite. This has been corrected. Another minor issue has been fixed also. Previously the software did not […]
Go to the Downloadables page for the latest version of the NeEstimator software. Version 2.01 is a minor update of v2.0. The software is described here. Since its launch in August 2013, the software has been downloaded over 600 times.
The development team of Chi Do, Robin Waples, David Peel, Bree Tillett and Jenny Ovenden have been working together since March 2010 to produce this major re-write of the original NeEstimator software. The re-write brings together three methods that produce estimates of effective size from a single population sample of genotypes. It also implements the […]
