Welcome to Evolution simulation and classification project!

After measuring gene frequencies of modern populations that have a common ancestor, we estimate ancestral allele frequency and selection state for each gene. A bayesian model is used and verified using the included simulator.

Getting started

You can install the package and run a simulation using the following commands in R:

install.packages(c("animation","ggplot2")) # for dependencies on CRAN
install.packages("nicholsonppp", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")
sim <- sim.drift.selection()
df <- sim2df(sim)
## Plot 6 loci evolving over time:
## Make an animation that summarizes the simulation:

Compiler notes

The package has been compiled successfully using gfortran and ifort. We prefer using ifort when possible, since it makes the program run faster. To use ifort with R you have to recompile R. Download the sources then do:

FC=ifort ./configure && make

Also make sure to add your ifort lib (something like intel/Compiler/11.0/081/lib/ia32) to the list of libraries (normally /etc/ld.so.conf), then run ldconfig. If you don't have root you may want to just set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the ifort lib.
