About iMKT

The iMKT web server

iMKTis a web-based service performing four types of McDonald and Kreitman tests (MKT). It allows the detection and estimation of four selection regimes (adaptive, neutral, strongly deleterious and weakly deleterious) acting on protein-coding DNA sequences. The purpose of this tool is twofold. First, it provides a simple interface to analyze user’s own population genomic data. Second, taking advantage of the copious information gathered in our previous population genome browsers, PopFly and PopHuman, it offers a fast tool to estimate the different selective regimes on thousands of Drosophila and human protein-coding genes on several worldwide populations.
