SPLATCHE3: simulation of serial genetic data under spatially explicit evolutionary scenarios including long-distance dispersal.
SUMMARYSPLATCHE3 simulates genetic data under a variety of spatially explicit evolutionary scenarios, extending previous versions of the framework. The new capabilities include long-distance migration, spatially and temporally heterogeneous short-scale migrations, alternative hybridization models, simulation of serial samples of genetic data and a large variety of DNA mutation models. These implementations have been applied independently to various studies, but grouped together in the current version.
AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATIONSPLATCHE3 is written in C ++ and is freely available for non-commercial use from the website http://www.splatche.com/splatche3. It includes console versions for Linux, MacOs and Windows and a user-friendly GUI for Windows, as well as detailed documentation and ready-to-use examples.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATIONDetails about the implemented evolutionary models and parameters are provided in the software documentation available at http://www.splatche.com/splatche3.
