LAMARC v2.1.10

Estimation of recombination rate, migration rate, effective population sizes and exponential growth rates


Lamarc is a program for doing Likelihood Analysis with Metropolis Algorithm using Random Coalescence. Lamarc estimates effective population sizes, population exponential growth rates, a recombination rate, past migration rates for one to n populations assuming a migration matrix model with asymmetric migration rates and different subpopulation sizes, and optionally divergence form ancestral populations (the population tree must be known).

This version can use DNA or RNA sequence data, SNPs, microsatellites, or electrophoretic data. The program can produce: estimates of recombination rate, migration rates between each population pair, population sizes (scaled by mutation rate), population exponential growth rates, times of population divergence, profile likelihood tables, and percentiles.
