I've got control region sequence data from a population of shark and I'm looking to convert this from FASTA to FSTAT in order to calculated the effective population size of females. The software I want to use only accepts FSTAT or Genepop files.

Is it possible to convert FASTA to FSTAT or even Genepop?


Check out PGDSpider. The inputs and outputs table indicates that it supports conversion between FASTA and FSTAT formats, among many others.
