Bio::PopGen::PopStats - A collection of methods for calculating statistics about a population or sets of populations
use Bio::PopGen::PopStats; my $stats = Bio::PopGen::PopStats->new(); # add -haploid => 1 # to process haploid data
Calculate various population structure statistics, most notably Wright's Fst.
User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing list. Your participation is much appreciated.

The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods. Internal methods are usually preceded with a _
Title : new Usage : my $obj = Bio::PopGen::PopStats->new(); Function: Builds a new Bio::PopGen::PopStats object Returns : an instance of Bio::PopGen::PopStats Args : -haploid => 1 (if want to use haploid calculations)
Title : haploid_status Usage : $obj->haploid_status($newval) Function: Boolean value for whether or not to do haploid or diploid calculations, where appropriate Returns : Boolean Args : on set, new boolean value optional)
Title : Fst Usage : my $fst = $stats->Fst(\@populations,\@markernames) Function: Calculate Wright's Fst based on a set of sub-populations and specific markers Returns : Fst value (a value between 0 and 1) Args : Arrayref of populations to process Arrayref of marker names to process Note : Based on diploid method in Weir BS, Genetics Data Analysis II, 1996 page 178.
