Title SNPsim
Short Description Coalescent simulation of hotspot recombination
Long Description SNPsim is a population genetic simulator that generates samples of SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms) haplotypes and diploid biallelic genotypes. It is based on the coalescent with recombination (Hudson 1983) modified by Wiuf and Posada (2003) to include recombination hotspots. SNPsim also allows for the specification of demographic periods and different mutation models.
