fineSTRUCTURE software for analysing population structure
fineSTRUCTURE and the accompanying ChromoPainter are software applications that utilise dense genetic variation datasets of SNP markers, to explore ancestry relationships among individuals, and to perform Bayesian model-based clustering of individuals into genetically similar populations. The method is suitable for sequencing-based or genotyping array data. This approach has greater fine-scale resolution (e.g. finding structure within countries or continents) than previous algorithms.

HAPMIX software for identifying ancestry segments in admixed individuals
HAPMIX is an application for accurately inferring chromosomal segments of distinct ancestry in admixed populations, using dense genetic data. For comprehensive details see the HAPMIX paper: Price et al., PLoS Genet (2009).
HAPMIX is free to use or modify for non-commercial users.
