Abstract

The analysis of DNA sequence polymorphisms and SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms) can provide insights into the evolutionary forces acting on populations and species. Available population-genetic methods, and particularly those based on the coalescent theory, have become the primary framework to analyze such DNA polymorphism data. Here, I explain some essential analytical methods for interpreting DNA polymorphism data and also describe the basic functionalities of the DnaSP software. DnaSP is a multi-propose program that allows conducting exhaustive DNA polymorphism analysis using a graphical user-friendly interface.
