Genepop distribution page
You will find here all files for Genepop 4.2.1 (26 May 2013; Rousset, 2008). Also available is a recompiled version of the linkdos program (Garnier-Géré and Dillmann 1992), which was distributed with previous versions of Genepop. Linkdos is not part of Genepop itself.
Documentation: download Genepop.pdf
Windows Executables (32 and 64-bit versions): download exe.zip
Example files: download examples.zip.
Macintosh users (OS X): recompile the sources as for Linux.
In case of problem with files obtained from this page, please report to me (not to Eleanor Morgan); and read the documentation first.
Genepop is freeware (i.e. you don't need to pay). It is free software covered by the CeCILL licence (GPL compatible), i.e. it can be used, copied, studied, modified and redistributed in other free software also covered by a GPL-compatible licence (in particular, with freely available source code, even if commercial software), and provided the Genepop source is acknowledged (of course... well, that does not seem obvious to everyone. See the GPL!).
See the documentation for all further information.
Change log :
What is new to version 4.2.1?
More cryptic changes in input file checks (again).
What was new to version 4.2 (21/11/2012)?
One can perform all isolation-by-distance analyses with a user-provided distance matrix. Cryptic changes in inter-OS input file checks (again) and in the way locus names are read, which could previously make Genepop crash.
What was new to versions 4.1.x :
files were included in version 4.1.3. This new release corrects
for this. 4.1.3: This
version intended to correct two problems with the IsolationFile
option: the source file was not correctly read and (for Windows
only) the results when not correctly displayed. 4.1.2: The
Windows executables included in version 4.1.1 were not portable
and this is corrected. The genotypic disequilibrium test treated
incomplete genotypes as full genotypes and this is corrected. 4.1.1: Again
some cryptic changes in inter-OS input file checks; correction of
a crashing bug for a missing-data case in LD testing; but nothing
really new in the code. 64-bit
executables for Windows. (but see version
4.1.2) The LINKDOS.exe which was missing from the v.4.1
distribution, has been restored.
4.1: (1) It is possible to test trends in gene diversity among samples. (2) Analyses of isolation by distance have been strengthened in several ways. Variants of previously described estimators have been implemented for both haploid and diploid data. 0ne can select subsets of the data for analyses of isolation by distance within and between these subsets. Further, analysis of isolation by distance from several one-locus genetic distance matrices is now possible through the MultiMigFile option. In contrast to IsolationFile, this allows the construction of bootstrap conﬁdence intervals. Finally, it is possible to test speciﬁc values of the slope of the spatial regression, using the testPoint setting. (3) The input ﬁle reading procedure is better protected against nonstandard ﬁle formats (in particular those produced by some Microsoft software under Mac OS X). (4) The new sub-option 8.4 has been added to convert population-based data to individual-based data (each individual in its own Pop).
Older changes since version 126.96.36.199 (first advertised release):
v. 4.0.6 (05/09/2007): corrected a change in v. 188.8.131.52 which made settings files unreadable under Windows. Sample file sampleSettings.txt also corrected to match the examples in the Documentation. v. 4.0.7 (25/11/2007): corrected a bug in the Mantel test when some samples had null geographic distance. v. 4.0.8 (28/01/2009): corrected a minor file reading bug in linkage disequilibrium test when pop strings were followed by tab characters. v. 4.0.9 (02/03/2009): can now convert 3-digits data to Linkdos format. v. 4.0.10 (28/04/2009): cosmetic changes + updating #include's for compilation with g++ 4.3.2. v. 4.0.11 (25/06/2010): corrected a bug (introduced in version 4) for computation of P-values from chi2 distribution with large df's. Also some more cryptic changes including new procedures for checking input file format, in principle less dependent on operating system distribution-specific features.
