We are aware that the version of PowerMarker available from this site is nonfunctional, giving a message that it has expired. We are trying to find a copy of the original source code to recompile PowerMarker, but we are not very hopeful about that. Even though it remains widely used, we have not supported or updated PowerMarker for over 10 years. At this point the only way to run the software is by changing your computer.s calendar date. Please watch the web site for a message announcing either a revised download or the end of PowerMarker.
Version 3.25 released on 2/5/2006. This is a permanent version!! Please cite the Bioinformatics paper. Choose 'How To Cite' from Help menu to see more details.
Version 3.09 released on 7/14/2004. Support 120 dpi
Version 3.08 released on 6/14/2004. Fixed a bug in
core set selection.
Version 3.07 released on 3/20/2004. (1) New
SNP identification tool (2) Fix several minor bugs.
Version 3.03 is available for download. (1) Fix a
bug in batch export. (2) New functionality for single haplotype phase
assignment. (3) Allow for all-missing individuals for most analyses.
PowerMarker V3.0 was officially released on January 30th, 2004. Full
documentation is included.
- The following functions are disabled in
PowerMarker: (1) Marker selection for haplotype data, genotype data and
trio data (2) Population structure inference based on EM algorithm (3)
Logistic regression and least angle regression for association study. The
author is stilling working on the publications. The algorithms have been
implemented and tested with simulated data. Please contact the author
if you are interested in these algorithms.
PowerMarker is a comprehensive set of
statistical methods for genetic marker data analysis, designed especially
for SSR/SNP data analysis. PowerMarker builds a
powerful user interface around both new and traditional statistical
methods for population genetic analysis. See
analysis to check out the versatility of PowerMarker. PowerMarker is
also a 2D Viewer - which was used intensively for visualizing linkage
disequilibria results. Download
