GSR: Simulator - NEOGEN
|Short Description||A tool to predict genetic effective population size (Ne) for species with generational overlap and to assist empirical Ne study design|
|Long Description||NeOGen (genetic Ne for Overlapping Generations analysis; pronounced Neo-gen) is point-&-click genetic effective population size (Ne) and demographic modelling software. The software, initially designed for sharks, is applicable to many overlapping-generation species with moderate to low population sizes and fecundity (such as mammals). NeOGen provides a cohesive linkage disequilibrium genetic Ne estimate (Ne.LD) analysis and population simulation framework that simulates both the demography and genetic composition of a population, given a small subset of fundamental species-specific life-history, demographic and genetic priors. NeOGen then guides the researchers in-silico to establish a tractable sampling regime, resulting in the numbers of samples and loci required to give accurate and precise Ne.LD estimates when empirical sampling is performed in the field.|
