Abstract: GENEPOP is a software package used to analyse data of population genetics. It is able to perform three major tasks , i. e. , exact test for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium , population differentiation and genotypic disequilibrium among pairs of loci , estimation of classical population parameters , such as Fst and other correlations , allele frequencies , etc. , convering the input GENEPOP files to formats used by other programs , like BIOSYS, FSTAT and L INKDOS. It has some advantages over other population genetics software such as BIOSYS in statistics test , data type and input files.
