Migraine distribution page
Migraine implements coalescent algorithms for maximum likelihood analysis of population genetic data. The data currently handled are allelic counts but sequences will be handled in the forthcoming version. The code is designed to be compiled with the GNU C++ compiler under Windows and Linux (including its Mac OSX incarnation).
The version available through this page includes implementations of one- and two-dimensional isolation by distance models (including the island model as a subcase), as well as the two-populations model described in de Iorio et al. (2005) and the elementary one-population model (with 2Nμ as unique parameter). Typical analyses can be performed in seconds (in the one-parameter case) or overnight (in some three-parameter cases), and longer analyses can easily been split among different computers.
The distribution now includes an R package (Rmigraine). The Ckrigcoefs library found in the previous distributions is now obsolete.
For the "first session" sample files, download examples.zip.
Recent changes: The R package has been updated on 2013/05/29.
Current developments: models of variable population size and of population divergence; infinite site model and SNPs.
