Quick Start Guides

       (3) Other users may wish to read the ``Creating K-adic Data'' Guide.

       (1) The ``classic mode'' quick start document allows beginners familiar with the old EuGene sofware to produce the same data using NewGene.  We using this document, read also FAQ #21

       (2) The Dyadic quick start document enables users to become familiar with using other variable groups in NewGene -- which have the most up-to-date version of datasets -- to produce a dyadic dataset.  

Newgene is more flexible than EuGene. It has the ability to work with more types of data and to generate different forms of output data. This necessarily means that Newgene requires more user input than EuGene in order to generate a dataset suitable for analysis.


Some users may not appreciate taking additional steps to produce a dataset. EuGene admittedly made the production of datasets easy and quick. However, given that its ease might have made EuGene a ``collective bad'', requiring users to take a few more steps to think through the dataset they wish to produce is probably a good thing.


Therefore, to help users learning how to use NewGene to produce output datasets, we created a number of ``quick start'' guides. These walk users through the steps of producing some common datasets.


We presently offer four ``quick start walkthrough guides'':

We encourage users to read these guides, consult the FAQ page, and watch relevant videos on our YouTube channel.

       (4) The ``Inputing Data'' Guide walks users through an example of how to create a new Unit of Analysis and add data to NewGene.
