calculates the maximum likelihood surface of g=4Nes
for selection on preferred codons. It is a Perl script that evaluates
polymorphism data based on the approach of McVean &
Charlesworth (1999) as implemented in Cutter
& Charlesworth (2006) and Cutter
(2008). The accompanying zip file contains the Perl script, a limited
documentation file, an example input file, and example output files.
We have compiled a customizable Google Map for
many of the wild strains of Caenorhabditis
species that we have in the lab, or that we have worked with
previously. Our global map now includes strains for nearly 30 species.
For a searchable database of many wild isolates, we recommend the Felix
Map of wild isolates for all Caenorhabditis
We previously made individual species maps, which
are now superceded by our integrated
strain maping webpage. However, we include these
links as a legacy. If you have a Google account, you can save the links
to these maps to your account or import them into Google Earth. If you
make maps for your strains, please let us know!
