Abstract

PopABC is a computer package for inferring the pattern of demographic divergence of closely related populations and species. The software performs coalescent simulation in the framework of approximate Bayesian computation (ABC). PopABC can also be used to perform Bayesian model choice to discriminate between different demographic scenarios. The program can be used either for research or for education and teaching purposes.

AVAILABILITY AND IMPLEMENTATION:

Source code and binaries are freely available at http://www.reading.ac.uk/ approximately sar05sal/software.htm. The program was implemented in C and can run on UNIX, MacOSX and Windows operating systems.
