IBDWS is a robust and fast application for analyzing the relationship between (genetic) isolation and (geographic) distance. IBDWS improves substantially upon the previous IBD program in a number of ways, including several important upgrades and bug fixes, a user-friendly interface and the production of postscript graphing capability. Questions regarding the use of IBDWS should be directed to http://www.bio.sdsu.edu/pub/andy/IBD.html or to Andrew Bohonak personally. A user manual for the (old) standalone IBD application is still available at http://www.bio.sdsu.edu/pub/andy/IBDManual.pdf. Nearly all of the information in this manual regarding input formats and details of the analyses is still accurate.
