Description : Likelihood Analysis with Metropolis Algorithm using Random Coalescence
LAMARC is a program which estimates population-genetic parameters such
as population size, population growth rate, recombination rate, and
migration rates. It approximates a summation over all possible
genealogies that could explain the observed sample, which may be
sequence, SNP, microsatellite, or electrophoretic data. LAMARC and its
sister program Migrate are successor programs to the older programs
Coalesce, Fluctuate, and Recombine, which are no longer being supported.
The programs are memory-intensive but can run effectively on
workstations; we support a variety of operating systems.
Remark: This program was distributed with BioLinux which is orphaned now.
The Debian Med team tries to fullfil the gap and take over all free
projects once beeing distributed by BioLinux. The packaging will be
