| Title || kernalPop |
| Short Description || A spatially explicit population genetic simulation engine |
| Long Description || Individual-based, spatially explicit models provide a mechanism to understand distributions of individuals on the landscape; however, few models have been coupled with population genetics. The primary benefits of such a combination is to assess performance of populationgenetic estimators in realistic situations. KERNELPOP represents a flexible framework to implement almost any arbitrary population-genetic and demographic model in a spatially explicit context using a variety of dispersal kernels. Estimates of type I error associated with genome scans in metapopulations are provided as an illustration of this software’s utility |
