lfmm website  

The LFMM computer program includes an integrated framework based on population genetics, ecological modeling and statistical techniques for screening genomes for signatures of local adaptation.

It implements fast algorithms using latent factor mixed models based on a variant of Bayesian principal component analysis in which residual population structure is introduced via unobserved factors.
