Maurtian Skink Analysis
The program used in the analysis is being developed for public release here
The original version of the program used in Nichols and Freeman (2003) Molecular
Ecology is available (as a Pascal text file).
It would take considerable effort to modify it to run for another data set,
but you could try contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for advice. This
is the version used to analyse the synthetic dataset produced by EASYPOP. An
example input file for this old program is here.
The original data is presented here as a series of Excell files, one
for each population.
Orange tails on Flat Island
Within each file, each row refers to an individual. The two alleles
at each locus are listed as numbers representing the allele length. Values
in green have been obtained in re-runs since the analysis described in the
paper. After this data, a list of all alleles at each locus is given along
with the corrections made in the light of mis-scoring, and the combining
of alleles that appear to differ by less than a complete repeat unit.
Please consult email@example.com if you wish to use these data for publication.
