Bayesian Inference

Bayallele, a play on the words "Bayesian" and "allele",
is a Java-based application that uses Bayesian inference and markov chain
monte carlo methods to analyse genetic data. For each population (*p*)
the analysis obtains separate estimates of population size (*N _{p}*)
and migration rate (

The original application upon which Bayallele is based can be found here. It was developed in Pascal by Prof. R.A. Nichols as part of his research into the conservation genetics of endemic skinks on Mauritius.

**Please join the Bayallele-users mailing list here. Release information will be posted via the mailing
list. Please feel free to pose any questions you may have regarding this project or the application.**
