Microsat is a microsatellite distance program. Its calculations can take various aspects of the allele sizes into account. The distance measure to be calculated may be any one of the following:

  • D1: average square
  • D1*: adjusted average square
  • Dad: absolute difference
  • Fst
  • Dkf: -ln(kinship coefficient)
  • Dkf': 1-kinship coefficient
  • Dkf*: -ln(adjusted kinship coefficient)
  • Dkf*': 1-adjusted kinship coefficient
  • Ddm: delta mu squared
  • Gst
  • Dps: -ln(proportion of shared alleles)
  • Dps': 1-proportion of shared alleles
  • Rst: standardized Rst1
  • Dfs: -ln(fuzzy set similarity)
  • Dfs': 1-fuzzy set similarity
  • Dsw: absolute product
