Description : simulation of evolution of DNA sequences
treevolve will simulate the evolution of DNA sequences under a
coalescent model, which allows exponential population growth,
population subdivision according to an island model, migration and
recombination. In addition different periods of population dynamics
can be enforced at different times. For example, a period of
exponential growth can be followed by a period of stasis where the
population is subdivided into demes. Multiple sets of such simulated
sequence data can then be compared to sequence data sampled from a
population of interest using suitable statistics, and various
evolutionary hypotheses concerning the evolution of this population

The package is already ready: it was prepared by Vincent Danjean, who
offered it to the Debian-Med packaging team.
