mlcoalsim : Multilocus Coalescent Simulations
Current Released Version: 1.42 (March 18th, 2008)

The application program mlcoalsim is designed to:
This program is based on a previous version of Hudsonís coalescent program ms (Hudson, 2002) and modified for the above purposes.

Remember: mlcoalsim is optimized for many independent regions, or alternatively, for linked regions when the recombination value is not too large. In case using large recombination values (i.e., large genome regions), ancestral recombination graph (ARG) is a much faster methodology and should be used.
