CERVUS is a Windows 95-based program designed for large-scale parentage analysis using co-dominant loci. Analysis is broken down into three sequential stages. Using genotype data in text file format, the program can analyse allele frequencies, run appropriate simulations and carry out likelihood-based parentage analysis, testing the confidence of each parentage using the results of the simulation. Simulations may also be used to estimate the power of a series of loci for parentage analysis, using real or imaginary allele frequencies.

Structure Software for Population Genetics Inference

Structure is a software package for using multi-locus genotype data to infer the presence of distinct populations, assigning individuals to populations, studying hybrid zones, identifying migrants and admixed individuals, and estimating population allele frequencies in situations where many individuals are migrants or admixed. It can be applied to most of the commonly-used genetic markers, including allozymes, microsatellites, RFLPs and SNPs.
