Genome wide analysis of long term evolutionary domestication in Drosophila melanogaster

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5177908
PMID: 28004838
DOI: 10.1038/srep39281
call_split See protocol

[…] To perform our first set of simulations we used MimicrEE ( https://sourceforge.net/projects/mimicree/), a forward simulation specifically designed to mimic experimental evolution. It simulates populations of diploid individuals where genomes are pr […]


Estimating the Effective Population Size from Temporal Allele Frequency Changes in Experimental Evolution

PMCID: 5068858
PMID: 27542959
DOI: 10.1534/genetics.116.191197

[…] reby increasing the variance of the estimate. The impact of dependence between SNPs is investigated based on 10 replicated whole-genome forward simulations with recombination, using the software tool MimicrEE (). As a starting population for the forward simulations, we sampled 2000 haploid genomes out of 8000 genomes simulated with fastsimcoal v.1.1.2 (; ). The parameters used to generate the geno […]


Patterns of Linkage Disequilibrium and Long Range Hitchhiking in Evolving Experimental Drosophila melanogaster Populations

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 4298179
PMID: 25415966
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msu320

[…] GRP lines (). We determine haplotype markers for different sets of known base-haplotypes and estimate haplotype frequencies for populations simulated under neutrality. Simulations were performed with MimicrEE () using Ne = 200 without recombination from a starting population with a similar representation of all 158 DRGP base haplotypes for chromosomes X, 2L, and 3L. The frequency of each haplotype […]


Massive Habitat Specific Genomic Response in D. melanogaster Populations during Experimental Evolution in Hot and Cold Environments

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 3907058
PMID: 24150039
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/mst205

[…] at they were five generations old when making the mass-bred populations—then these numbers roughly accord with those expected within our experimental populations. The simulations were performed using MimicrEE (). This software enabled the modeling of recombination at rates that were derived from empirical estimates (). Thirty simulations were performed and divided into 10 equal-sized subsets. The […]
