Mega2, the Manipulation Environment for Genetic Analysis

Mega2 allows the applied statistical geneticist to convert one's data from several input formats to a large number output formats suitable for analysis by commonly used software packages. In a typical human genetics study, the analyst often needs to use a variety of different software programs to analyze the data, and these programs usually require that the data be formatted to their precise input specifications. Conversion of one's data into these multiple different formats can be tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone. Mega2, by providing validated conversion pipelines, can accelerate the analyses while reducing errors.
