PhyloGeoSim 1.0

Developed by Simon Dellicour, Olivier Hardy and Patrick Mardulyn


PhyloGeoSim (for “phylogeographic simulator”) simulates the evolution of DNA sequences under a model of coalescence on a 2-dimensional grid in which each cell is treated as one population. Going backward in time, populations can exchange gene copies and/or host coalescence events between two or more gene copies, at each generation. This geographic model of coalescence can be used to simulate data sets under evolutionary scenarios taking both demographic and geographic characteristics into account (e.g. isolation by distance, fragmentation, expansion, secondary contact…). In addition to generating DNA sequence matrices and genealogies, PhyloGeoSim also allows the computation of several summary statistics, based on both genetic and geographic information, on each simulated data set. Users can use this set of statistics to compare different evolutionary scenarios or to estimate population genetic parameters. PhyloGeoSim is an open source software written in Java and can thus be run on any operating system on which a Java Virtual Machine is installed (e.g., Windows, Mac OS and Linux).
