       Bio::PopGen::PopStats - A collection of methods for calculating statistics about a
       population or sets of populations


         use Bio::PopGen::PopStats;
         my $stats = Bio::PopGen::PopStats->new(); # add -haploid => 1
                                                  # to process haploid data


       Calculate various population structure statistics, most notably Wright's Fst.


   Mailing Lists
       User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other Bioperl modules. Send
       your comments and suggestions preferably to the Bioperl mailing list.  Your participation
       is much appreciated.
                  - General discussion  - About the mailing lists

       Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:

       rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and reponsive experts will
       be able look at the problem and quickly address it. Please include a thorough description
       of the problem with code and data examples if at all possible.

       Matthew Hahn,


       The rest of the documentation details each of the object methods.  Internal methods are
       usually preceded with a _

        Title   : new
        Usage   : my $obj = Bio::PopGen::PopStats->new();
        Function: Builds a new Bio::PopGen::PopStats object
        Returns : an instance of Bio::PopGen::PopStats
        Args    : -haploid => 1 (if want to use haploid calculations)

        Title   : haploid_status
        Usage   : $obj->haploid_status($newval)
        Function: Boolean value for whether or not to do haploid
                  or diploid calculations, where appropriate
        Returns : Boolean
        Args    : on set, new boolean value optional)

        Title   : Fst
        Usage   : my $fst = $stats->Fst(\@populations,\@markernames)
        Function: Calculate Wright's Fst based on a set of sub-populations
                  and specific markers
        Returns : Fst value (a value between 0 and 1)
        Args    : Arrayref of populations to process
                  Arrayref of marker names to process
        Note    : Based on diploid method in Weir BS, Genetics Data Analysis II, 1996
