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.
Complete package (source code, executables, scripts, LastWave software,
documentation, data file examples, and
The LastWave 2.0.4 software has been written by E. Bacry;
