Abstract

In this paper we present the ADOPS (Automatic Detection Of Positively Selected Sites) software that is ideal for research projects involving the analysis of tens of genes. ADOPS is a novel software pipeline that is being implemented with the goal of providing an automatic and flexible tool for detecting positively selected sites given a set of unaligned nucleotide sequence data.
