Abstract

There are currently many programs available to conduct ABC analyses (Table 13.1). However, most programs are specific to a particular problem, and the large majority for questions that typically arise in a population- genetics setting. These include programs to infer demographic histories (e.g. ONeSAMP, PopABC, msABC, or DIYABC), to infer F-statistics (ABC4F), or to infer parental contributions in an admixture event (2BAD). However, there exists also programs for phylogeographic inference (msBayes), Systems Biology (ABC-SysBio), or the inference under stochastic differential equations (the MATLAB® package abc-sde).
