Title simuGWAS
Short Description A forward-time simulator that simulates realistic samples for genome-wide association studies.
Long Description simuGWAS evolves a population forward in time, subject to rapid population expansion, mutation, recombination and natural selection. A trajectory simulation method is used to control the allele frequency of optional disease predisposing loci. A scaling approach can be used to improve efficiency when weak, additive genetic factors are used.
