InStruct @ BioHPC

InStruct implements the Markov Chain Monte Carlo algorithm for the generalized Bayesian clustering method to estimate the self-fertilization rates and cluster individuals into subpopulations simultaneously using genotype data consisting of unlinked markers. For more information about the program please refer to the documentation.

Sources of InStruct can be found here.
Executables can be downloaded for the following platforms:
MS Windows (32bit)
MS Windows (64bit)
Linux (64bit)
Mac OSX (PowerPC)
Mac OSX (Intel) - complements of Patrick Meirmans (University of Amsterdam)

Calculations will be carried out on the BioHPC compute cluster at CBSU. You will receive e-mail notifications when the job is submitted, when it starts, and when it is finished. Output will be available via links embedded in the notification e-mails. For more information about this program and BioHPC interface in general, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
