[Bioperl-l] population genetics

There's now a composite genotypic LD method in Bio::PopGen::Statistics.

The genotypic method doesn't require you to infer haplotypes using an 
EM or likelihood method, it just works from diploid data.  It has 
slightly less power because of this.  I'm sure a statistic for 
gametic LD would be appreciated.
