V2.81 is a small change to show the name of the uploaded file at the top of the HTML output.

V2.8 adds the number of input STRs in the upper right hand of each kit in the tree picture as a handy cross-reference for how many STR markers were used for each kit.

The V2.7 release includes two new options: first, a /CALIBRATE section which allows you to adjust TMRCAs in the tree to known years. SAPP will then flow the other TMRCAs above and below that (or those) nodes to compensate. Second, a new /COLORS section allows you to change the color of any kit or node in the output tree. Check the Inputs page for more details!

The V2.5 release includes two new text options - a /INFO section to place additional information on the tree against each kit or node, and a /GROUPS section to place labels above boxes! Check the Inputs page for more details!

V2.4 includes major changes to the TMRCA estimating, which now implements Ken Nordtvedt's full least squares interclade age estimating package (for anyone familiar with his Generations program).

V2.2 and V2.3 have come out in rapid succession, with improvements to SAPP's recognition of upstream STR signatures.

A new program, SNPTree, has been added. This program allows you to see into SAPP's internal database of SNPs and print a portion of the Y-SNP Tree. Note that only the R1b-Z260/L21 Y-SNP tree has been loaded into SAPP so far; other parts of the Y-SNP tree will be added over time.

SAPP V2.0 has been released! The program now works on any number of kits, although it may run for quite some time on several hundred kits. Status messages are printed periodically if the program is running for a long time so you can see where it is in the processing. There are also some new options and inputs - see the Inputs and Advanced Inputs screens for more details.

A website bug that stopped SAPP working in some browsers has been fixed.  The program no longer opens a new window to display its table output but you can get back to the program menu by clicking your browser's "back" key.

Version 1.2 of SAPP has raised the graphical tree limit to 250 kits!

 

 

April 2, 2016

 

Version 1.1 of SAPP has been released!  The tool now produces graphical trees in PNG format for groups up to 80 kits, and trees in text format for groups from 81 to 300 kits.
