ABCtoolbox was designed to perform Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) estimations using various recently published algorithms including MCMC without likelihood and Population Monte Carlo. Due to its potential to interact with almost any command line simulation software, ABCtoolbox can be used to study problems in different areas including genomics or population genetics. The authors are Daniel Wegmann, Christoph Leuenberger, Samuel Neuenschwander and Laurent Excoffier.


ABCtoolbox can be obtained as a zipped file ( here containg the source code, binaries for Linux and Windows and example files. A detailed description of ABCtoolbox is given in the manual, which is available here (ABCtoolbox_manual.pdf)
