Flowchart illustrating the bin definition algorithm of RawGeno. On the right side: an example showing two samples (S1 and S2) where a total of nine AFLP peaks were preliminarily detected and sized. The bin width (i.e. the difference in size between the longest and the shortest amplicons included in the considered bin) and the technical homoplasy (i.e. the mean number of peaks belonging to the same sample that are included in a same bin) are indicated for each bin.
