Poppr provides open-source, cross-platform tools for quick analysis of population genetic data gehalex focus on data analysis and interpretation. While there are a plethora of packages for population genetic analysis, few are able to offer quick and easy analysis of populations with mixed reproductive modes.

New features in version 2.

Data import and manipulation in poppr version

Poppr is an R package with convenient functions genaoex analysis of genetic manuak with mixed modes of reproduction including sexual and clonal reproduction. While there are many R packages in CRAN and other repositories with tools for population genetic analyses, few are appropriate for populations with mixed modes of reproduction. There are several stand-alone programs that can handle these types of data sets, but they are often platform specific and often only accept specific data types. Furthermore, a typical analysis often involves switching between many programs, and converting data to each specific format.

Poppr is designed to make analysis of populations with mixed reproductive modes more streamlined and user friendly so that the researcher using it can focus on data analysis and interpretation.

To avoid creating yet another file format that is specific to a program, poppr was created on the backbone of the popular R package adegenet and can take all the file formats that adegenet can take Genpop, Genetix, Fstat, and Structure and newly introduces compatibility with GenAlEx formatted files exported to CSV.

This means that anything you can analyze in adegenet can be further analyzed with poppr. The real power of poppr is in the data manipulation and analytic tools.

Poppr has the ability to bootstrap, clone-censor, and subset data sets. These tools allow researchers to define manuak it means to be a clone lost in a sea of genomic data, generate bootstrapped dendrograms with any genetic distance, and calculate minimum spanning networks with reticulations to reveal the underlying population structure of your clonal data.

This vignette will cover all of the material you need to know to efficiently analyze data in poppr. For information on methods of analysis eg. As poppr expanded from version 1. As a result, it became clear that over gnalex, words was less of a manual and more of a novella with a terrible plot. As of springDrs. Everhart, and I have co- authored a primer on using R for population genetic analysis. It is located manuual http: If you have any questions or feedback, manuxl free to send a message to the poppr forum at http: You can submit bug reports there or on our github site: Much thanks goes to Sydney E.

Everhart for alpha testing, beta testing, feature requests, proofreading, data contribution, and moral support throughout the writing of this package and manual. The formal publication for the first version of poppr was published in the journal PeerJ: The new features in version 2.

This manual assumes you genalez installed R. We also recommend the Rstudio IDE http: All dependencies will also be installed. In the unfortunate case this does not work, please consult https: Since poppr contains C code, it needs to be compiled, which means that you need a working C compiler.


If you are on Linux, you should have that, but if you are on Windows or OSX, you might need to download some special tools:. To install from GitHub, you do not need to download the tarball since there is a package called devtools that will download and install the package for you directly from GitHub. After you have installed all dependencies see above sectionyou should download gehalex. The author assumes that if you have reached this point in the manual, then you have successfully installed R and poppr.

Before proceeding, you should be aware that R is case sensitive. You should also know where your R package library is located. In this section, you will learn how to locate a file, import it to R, and make a first analysis using the poppr function. These packages live in a certain place on your computer called an R library. You can find out where this library is by typing.

This is simply a tool to help you get started.

GenAlEx Tutorials

As you genalx better with R, you might feel genlex you don”t need it at all. A pop up window will appear like this Once we select a file, the file name and its path will be stored in the variable, x. Here we can see that x is a list with two entries: The file is in the GenAlEx format, so we will import it using read. The output of manula was assigned to the variable popdataso let”s look at the data.

Stoddart and Taylor Hexp – Nei”s Expected Heterozygosity. Brown, Feldman, and Gehalex Smith et al. Agapow and Burt These fields are further described in the function poppr. You can access the help page for poppr by typing? One thing to note about this output is the NaN in the column labeled SE. This is produced from calculation of a standard error based on rarefaction analysis. Occasionally, this calculation will encounter a situation in which it must attempt to take a square root of a negative number.

Unfortunately, R will not represent the imaginary components of numbers unless you specifically tell it to do so. By default, R represents these as NaN.

When anyone talking about importing a file into R, they are referring to a spreadsheet or text file that lives in a folder on your hard drive. The output of read. This means that it only exists for as long as R is running.

The good thing about having objects stored in memory is that you can manipulate them in any way and not affect the source of those data. Since R is a scripted language instead of point-and-clickany of your manipulations can be saved in a separate R file that can be easily adapted to new data.

Of course, most data are not going to be entered into Maual manually. Usually they will mamual formatted in a manner that can be read by popular population genetics programs. Here, we introduce a new way of importing data into a genind or genclone object from a GenAlEx formatted file. A very popular program for population genetics is GenAlEx http: GenAlEx runs within the Excel environment and can be very powerful in its analyses.

It can handle data types containing regions and geographic coordinates, but currently cannot import allelic frequency data from GenAlEx. Using the poppr function read. For ways of formatting a GenAlEx file, see the manual here: Below is an example of the GenAlEx format.


We will use the data set called microbov from the adegenet package to generate it. The data contains three demographic factors: We will first set these as the population strata, define the population as the combination of the strata, and then save a file to the desktop. The first 15 individuals and 4 loci of the microbov data set. The first column contains the individual names, the second column contains the population names, and each subsequent column represents microsatellite genetic data.

Highlighted in red is a list of populations and their relative sizes. The GenAlEx format contains individuals in rows and loci in columns. Individual data begins at row 4. Column A always contains individual names and column B defines the population of each individual. This allows us to import more than one population factor to use as hierarchical levels in a genclone object. The First three rows contain information pertaining to the global data set.

The only important information for poppr is the information contained in row 3 and the genaldx three columns of row 1. Highlighted in red in figure above are definitions of the number of populations mznual their respective sizes.

As this is redundant information, we can remove it. Below is an example of a valid data set that can be imported into poppr. This is the same figure as above, however the populations and counts have been removed from the header row and the third number in the header has been replaced by 1.

Data import and manipulation in poppr version 2.8.1

All GenAlEx formatted data can be imported with the command read. To do this for poppryou will need to manjal the first format outlined in the GenAlEx manual and place the geographic data AFTER all genetic and demographic data with one blank mankal separating it See the GenAlEx Manual for details. If you have geographic information in your file, set this flag to TRUE and it will be included within the resulting genind object in the other slot.

If you have your file organized in this manner, select this option and the regional information will gehalex stored in the other slot of the resulting genind object or be incorporated into the hierarchy of the genclone object. See About Polyploid Data for details. Note that regional data and geographic data are not mutually exclusive. You can have both in one file, just make sure that they are on the same sheet and that the geographic data is always placed after all genetic and demographic data.

We have a short example of GenAlEx formatted data with no geographic or regional formatting. We will first see where the data is using the command system. Executing rootrot shows that this file is now in genclone format and can be used with manuzl function in poppr and adegenet. Adegenet already supports the import of FSTATStructureNanualand Genetix formatted files, so if you have data in those formats, you can import them using the function import2genind.
