Arlequin is a free population genetics software distributed as an integrated GUI data analysis software.[1] It performs several types of tests and calculations, including Fixation index (Fst, also known as the "F-statistics"[2]), computing genetic distance, Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, linkage disequilibrium, mismatch distribution, and pairwise difference tests.

The newest version is[1] and is available only on Microsoft Windows as zip archive and installation executables.[1] Mac OS X and Linux have only older 3.5.2 version but restricted on 64-bit environments and have only command-line interface as the "arlecore"[3] program, "arlsumstat"[4] program, as well as the example files.
