ABSTRACT
Summary: GENOME proposes a rapid coalescent-based approach
to simulate whole genome data. In addition to features of standard
coalescent simulators, the program allows for recombination rates
to vary along the genome and for flexible population histories.
Within small regions, we have evaluated samples simulated by
GENOME to verify that GENOME provides the expected LD patterns
and frequency spectra. The program can be used to study the
sampling properties of any statistic for a whole genome study.
Availability: The program and C source code are available online
