Title Serial NetEvolve
Short Description A flexible utility for generating serially-sampled sequences along a tree or recombinant network
Long Description Serial NetEvolve is a modification of the Treevolve program in which serially sampled sequences are evolved along a randomly generated coalescent tree or network (Grassly et al. 1999; Hudson 1983; Kingman 1982) . Treevolve offers a variety of evolutionary model and population parameters including a rate of recombination and as such it was chosen over other programs to be adapted for the simulation of serially sampled data. The new features include the choice of either a clock-like model of evolution or a variable rate of evolution, simulation of serial samples and the output of the randomly generated tree or network in Newick format or in our newly formulated NeTwick format.
