Current Release: Version 2.0.3 (January 19, 2010)


VariScan is a software package for the analysis of DNA sequence polymorphisms at the whole genome scale. Among other features, the software:
(1) can conduct many population genetic analyses;
(2) incorporates a multiresolution wavelet transform-based method that allows capturing relevant information from DNA polymorphism data; and
(3) it facilitates the visualization of the results in the most commonly used genome browsers.
