Title Simprot
Short Description A program to simulate protein evolution by substitution, insertion and deletion
Long Description Protein evolution has been largely modelled by considering the amino acid substitution process; however they have been few studies of the process of insertion and deletion. Simprot allows for several models of amino acid substitution (PAM, JTT and PMB), allows for gamma distributed sites rates according to Yang's model, and implements a parameterised Qian and Goldstein distribution model for insertion and deletion.
