Basic Package Attributes
Short Description Genetic Architecture Model Emulator for Testing and Evaluating Software: Simulates complex SNP models with pure, strict epistatic interactions with n-loci.
Long Description Rapid, user friendly software package, able to generate whole populations of “worst-case-scenario” complex genetic models with random architectures, but a user specified set of constraints (i.e. number of loci, heritability, allele frequencies, prevalence). Intended for testing and evaluating algorithms or software for their ability to detect and model epistatic interactions in the absence of any main effects. The next version will add the ability to generate heterogeneous datasets (specifically datasets which concurrently contain both epistatic and heterogeneous effects.
