nQuire implements a set of commands to estimate ploidy level of individuals from species, where recent polyploidization occurred and intraspecific ploidy variation is observed. Specifically, nQuire uses next-generation sequencing data to distinguish between diploids, triploids and tetraploids, on the basis of frequency distributions at variant sites where only two bases are segregating.

For more background see also the publication at BMC Bioinformatics.
