Using these sample datasets with the NETW4108.exe software, you can learn to generate your own
cladograms. Once you become familiar with the use of the software, you can copy and paste your own
STR data into the sample files to generate cladograms of your own DNA study. Note that the
NETW4108.exe software is periodically updated, but the format required for the input files does not
change. Any files you produce should continue to work with later versions of the program.
