Hello,

Does anyone know a genetics simulation software that can simulate regions under long-term negative-selection? Coalescent simulators such as msms are only capable of simulating selection at specific sites. We are interested in simulating negative selection over an entire region (so multiple sites simultaneously). I have a suspicion that some forward simulators are capable of doing this but I have no experience with forward simulators. If anyone thinks they know a simulator that can do what we are looking for please let me know. Thanks in advance!

Best,

Rubal

Simupop can do this. It is robust, well documented and with many examples. But it is a programmable simulator: you have to know (or learn) Python. I cannot think of a non-programmable simulator that can do this (easypop comes to mind, but will not do it). Another possibility might be Rmetasim (in R), but I really do not know if it does what you want. simupop is a very safe bet if you know python or are willing to learn.

SFSCODE can simulate data under a huge range of models: http://sfscode.sourceforge.net/SFS_CODE/index/index.html
