Version 2, July 1995.
This is an updated version of GENEPOP (v. 1.2) described in:
GENEPOP (version 1.2): A population genetics software for exact tests and
Journal of Heredity, 1995, 86: 248-249
GENEPOP is a population genetic software package, able to perform two major
1) It computes exact tests: for Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, for
population differentiation and for genotypic disequilibrium among pairs of loci.
2) It converts the input GENEPOP file to formats used by other
programs, like Biosys (Swofford and Selander, 1981), Fstat (Goudet, 1995) and
Linkdos (Garnier-Gere and Dillman, 1992) and M. Slatkin's (1993)
isolation-by-distance program. Lindos and Dist are also provided with GENEPOP,
with the authorization of their authors (Dist has been modified from M.
GENEPOP runs on IBM PCs and compatibles (note: GENEPOP seems not to work
properly with a PowerMAC under a DOS emulation), without any need for extended
memory. A computer at least as fast as a PC with an Intel 486 processor is
preferable (but not required) to obtain accurate estimates within a reasonable
length of time. GENEPOP is not protected, and is available free of charge. How
to get GENEPOP?
1) if you have ftp (File Transfer Protocol) access, you can download the files
after an anonymous login to ftp.cefe.cnrs-mop.fr; the files reside under the
2) if you have an electronic mail that can read binhex or MIME encoded file
(such as nupop or pc-eudora), send a mail at Raymond at isem.univ-montp2.fr or
Rousset at isem.univ-montp2.fr, and you will receive the whole package.
3) only if 1 and 2 above failed, you can send two 3.5-in, 1.4 Mo disk, together
with a stamped envelope with your address written on it, to:
