Title SelSim
Short Description SelSim is a program for Monte Carlo simulation of DNA polymorphism data for a recom- bining region within which a single bi-allelic site has experienced natural selection
Long Description SelSim is a program for Monte Carlo simulation of DNA polymorphism data for a recom-bining region within which a single bi-allelic site has experienced natural selection. SelSim allows simulation from either a fully stochastic model of, or deterministic approximations to, natural selection within a coalescent framework. A number of different mutation models are available for simulating surrounding neutral variation. The package enables a detailed ex- ploration of the effects of different models and strengths of selection on patterns of diversity.This provides a tool for the statistical analysis of both empirical data and methods designed to detect natural selection.
