PMID: 28479988
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.2831

[…] ; rousset, ) using the g test, which computes the p‐value for the observed differences in frequencies between populations for all loci, using a markov chain algorithm. the r (r core team ) package, adegenet v1.6 (jombart & ahmed, ), was used to test for isolation by distance using a mantel test. lastly, we used the hierfstat package (goudet, ) in r to quantify genetic variation (f st) […]

PMCID: 5552028
PMID: 28796789
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pntd.0005718

[…] v.1.1 []., to further explore population structure, discriminant analyses of principle components (dapc), principle component analyses (pca), and plots illustrating fst values were created using the adegenet package v. 2.0.2. [], available on r software v. 3.2.4 and rstudio v.0.99.893 []. dapc optimizes variation between clusters while minimizing variation within them. data are transformed using […]

[…] ‘fields’ () to calculate the geographic distance matrix among populations based on their gps coordinates. we then tested for the presence of isolation by distance each year with mantel tests in the ‘adegenet’ r package (), within each ecotype and on the whole data set. additionally, following the guidelines provided by , we regressed fst/(1 – fst) on the geographic distance., to better describe […]

[…] pca plots, including an additional principal component, did not detect clustering based on these factors (). we further performed discriminant analysis of principal components (dapc) using the adegenet package in r, and it confirmed the existence of separate clusters for tumor and normal samples (p < 2.2 × 10−16) (see ) but not for gender and tumor locations (p > 0.2 […]

[…] population when adopting an approach without assumptions about hwe or linkage disequilibrium, discriminant analysis of principal component (dapc) was carried out with the method implemented in the adegenet package [] within the statistical package r version 3.3.2 []. dapc was conducted without a posteriori group assignments by inferring the most likely number of genetic clusters (k) using […]

[…] in []. these mean genotype estimates were used to calculate starting values of admixture proportions with the discriminant analysis of principal components (dapc) [] function in the r package adegenet [, ] for each respective number of clusters., the software entropy (like structure) uses multilocus genotype data to estimate admixture proportions given a number k of source populations.
