Spatial and Temporal Coalescences in Heterogeneous Environment Long Description (required) SPLATCHE (for SPatiaL And Temporal Coalescences in Heterogenous Environment) is a program that allows to incorporate the influence of environment in the simulation of migration of a given species from one or several origin(s). In a second phase, the molecular genetic diversity of one or several samples drawn from the simulated species can be generated. Geographic area and environmental information have to be specified by the program user in a series of input files. Basically, the virtual world where migrations take place is constituted by a matrix of demes. Each deme has its own environmental characteristics according to the input files. A coalescent-based approach allows to generate the molecular diversity of any population sample. The molecular data obtained can then be analyzed in order to study the signature of the simulated demographic scenario. The goal of this online manual is to describe the technical aspects of the software SPLATCHE (version 1.1). This manual complements the article from Currat, Ray and Excoffier, published in 2004. Further details on the methodology can also be found in Ray (2003) and Currat (2004). The pdf version of the user manual could also be download there.
Step 1: Use the attribute tree to add new attributes or remove pre-selected attributes to describe the simulator. Every sub-attribute is selected Not all sub-attributes are selected Fill Clear Expand Collapse Reset Summary of Proposed Changes Step 2: Review list of proposed attribute addition(s) and subtraction(s). Can't Find the Attribute You Are Looking For?
If you would like to propose an attribute that you cannot find in the tree above, or if you would like to add a clarification to one or more attributes for this simulator (e.g. a specific file format for attribute /Output/File Format/Other), please list them in the
