(Submitted on 14 Jan 2013)
SLiM is an efficient forward population genetic simulation designed for studying the effects of linkage and selection on a chromosome-wide scale. The program can incorporate complex scenarios of demography and population substructure, various models for selection and dominance of new mutations, arbitrary gene and chromosomal structure, and user-defined recombination maps.
