Haplotype networks are an intuitive method for visualising relationships between individual genotypes at the population level.

Here, we present

, an integrated software package that provides a comprehensive implementation of haplotype network methods, phylogeographic visualisation tools and standard statistical tests, together with publication‐ready figure production.

also provides a platform for the implementation and distribution of new network‐based methods – we describe one such new method, integer neighbour‐joining.

The software is open source and freely available for all major operating systems.
