Cosi2 : An efficient simulator of exact and approximate coalescent with selection.

Publication TypeJournal Article
AuthorsShlyakhter, I., Sabeti PC, and Schaffner SF
AbstractEfficient simulation of population genetic samples under a given demographic model is a prerequisite for many analyses. Coalescent theory provides an efficient framework for such simulations, but simulating longer regions and higher recombination rates remains challenging. Simulators based on a Markovian approximation to the coalescent scale well, but do not support simulation of selection. Gene conversion is not supported by any published coalescent simulators that support selection.
