Cytoptype (ploidy) inference from GBS data

We recently published a paper in Molecular Ecology Resources describing a method to determine ploidy in mixed ploidy samples from low to modest coverage GBS-like data (paper). This relies on both estimates of heterozygosity and allele specific read depth. The method we describe is implemented in the R package, gbs2ploidy. You can read more about it in this informative blog from the Molecular Ecologist.
