Summary: pegas (Population and Evolutionary Genetics Analysis System) is a new package for the analysis of population genetic data. It is written in R and is integrated with two other existing R packages (ape and adegenet). pegas provides functions for standard population genetic methods, as well as low-level functions for developing new methods. The flexible and efficient graphical capabilities of R are used for plotting haplotype networks as well as for other functionalities. pegas emphasizes the need to further develop an integrated–modular approach for software dedicated to the analysis of population genetic data.

Availability: pegas is distributed through the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN): http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/pegas/index.html Further information may be found at: http://ape.mpl.ird.fr/pegas/
