Title phenosim
Short Description A tool to add phenotypes to simulated genotypes
Long Description phenosim reads the output of commonly used coalescent simulators and simulates a phenotype based on a user-defined trait model for each individual. The simulated data can be used to assess the influence of various factors such as demography, genetic architecture or selection on the statistical power of association methods to detect causal genetic variants under a wide variety of population genetic scenarios.
