Written in C and Java, this program automates the process of deriving discrete allele sizes from the imprecisely observed allele size data from microsatellite markers using the least squares minimization algorithm of Idury and Cardon 1997. The program generates useful summary statistics besides a quality index for each marker and checks for the presence of allelic drift.
