bound_pop estimates the total size of the population in the sample, known as the species richness, with a nonparametric moment-based estimator. Typical input will be a text file with a single column of duplicate counts.
Parent program: Preseq
The preseq package is aimed at predicting the yield of distinct reads from a genomic library from an initial sequencing experiment. The estimates can then be used to examine the utility of further sequencing, optimize the sequencing depth, or to screen multiple libraries to avoid low complexity samples
