Title Marlin
Short Description Marlin provides a user-friendly interface for performing forward-in-time population genetic simulations.
Long Description Marlin is a program for running spatially explicit forward-in-time population genetic simulations. It provides an intuitive user interface with realistic geographic scenarios can easily be easily created and simulated. But Marlin goes further than that and directly analyses and plots the results. This combination of creation, simulation, and analysis makes Marlin ideal for teaching and for scientists who are interested in doing simulations without having to learn command-line operations.
