MSTRAT (for distribution via internet)
MSTRAT is a program for building germplasm core collections by maximizing allelic or phenotypic richness.
A paper on MSTRAT has been published in Journal of Heredity: Gouesnard B., Bataillon T.M., Decoux G., Rozale C., Schoen D.J., David J.L (2001). « MSTRAT: An Algorithm for Building Germ Plasm Core Collections by Maximizing Allelic or Phenotypic Richness » Journal of Heredity (2001) 92,93-94

What is new in Mstrat4.1 ?
What is new in Mstrat4.0 ?
The new version accepts missing data.
When different samples have the same richness, a second criteria of optimization is used. Three criteria are proposed : Nei indice, Shannon indice, and generalized variance. For the generalized variance criteria, a principal component analysis is performed with R software on complete data file.
