[…] ical niche and to escape the effects of selection and drift in the ancestral population ().The bactsimDF simulator was modified from the algorithm and code of the forward in time population simulator forwsim (). The algorithm used by forwsim to increase simulation speed is detailed elsewhere (), so we will only describe it briefly here. The populations being modeled are neutral Wright–Fisher popul […]


Simulation of Genes and Genomes Forward in Time

Curr Genomics
PMCID: 2851118
PMID: 20808525
DOI: 10.2174/138920210790218007

[…] of less efficiency than other non dynamic languages as C++ and this will be evident when largest population sizes, sequence length and/or generation number must be simulated. On the other side, it is forwsim [], which implements a very efficient simulator but with somewhat limited model options. To do so, it uses a forward-backward scheme i.e. exploits the genealogical information of several gener […]
