PMCID: 5732370
PMID: 29246102
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1988-y

[…] the test procedure is shown in fig. .fig. 1 , to assess the performance of our test, we simulated genetic data under three migration models: island (is) and stepping stone (ss), using the software genomepop 2.7 [], and isolation by distance (ibd), using ibdsimv2.0 []. we simulated the is and ss models with 4 populations, each with 25 individuals, and a single population under ibd with 100 […]

PMID: 26069460
DOI: 10.2174/1389202916666150313230943

[…] other measures could be assayed such as for example the average of positive svd (svdm) values., to test the ability of the svd and svdm methods for detecting the footprint of selection, the program genomepop [] was used to simulate two populations of facultative hermaphrodites under divergent selection and migration. each individual consisted of a diploid chromosome of length 1mb of biallelic […]

DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-14-192

[…] pathways, and epigenetic mechanisms, are studied using forward time simulators [,]. although current simulators exist for efficiently simulating large genomic regions — fregene, simupop, or genomepop — the memory management techniques do not extend to arbitrary genotype representations like pathways or metabolic networks or other mutation types like insertions or rearrangements [,]. […]

DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2013.00009

[…] program does not force recombination breakpoints to occur between codons, thus allowing more realistic simulations (see arenas and posada, ). concerning the forward-time approach, only the programs genomepop (carvajal-rodriguez, ) and sfs_code (hernandez, ) implement the simulation of coding sequences with recombination., evolutionary scenarios that are not implemented in these programs […]

PMID: 22693434
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002495

[…] of view, those programs most commonly used, most user-friendly, and which implement the most diverse range of evolutionary scenarios., intracodon recombination is also allowed in netrecodon and genomepop., the arg can be exported from netrecodon and can be then visualized and analyzed using nettest ., under codon models, ω can change across codons., coding sequences are simulated […]
