QPweb is the web version of
QP3.0 with
extended functionality. This program is a free software and comes
without any warranty. Implementation of statistical procedures in QPweb
is based on the powerful free statistical
software R.

This parasitology software is recommended either to describe or to
compare parasitic infections. All functions are appropriate to handle the highly aggregated (right-skewed) frequency distributions
characteristic to parasites in statistically correct ways.
