SNAP Workbench Version 2.0
SNAP Workbench is a Java program that manages and coordinates a series of analysis programs for making inferences on population processes. SNAP workbench allows the user to customize the implementation of complex console programs and functions for the purpose of automating and enhancing data exploration. In our implementation, the workbench facilitates population parameter estimation by ensuring that the assumptions and program limitations of each analysis method are met and by providing a step-by-step methodology to effectively integrate both summary-statistic methods and coalescent-based population genetic models.
The workbench is programmed in Java to preserve platform independence across multiple operating systems. The program modules integrated in the workbench are written in C or Java and are available for Mac, Windows and Linux platforms.
