2010 Bioinformatics  
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
