This is the README for fwdpy11, which is a Python package for forward-time population genetic simulation. It uses
fwdpp as its C++ back-end.
Python code style:
- Pickle-able population objects
- Parallel computation via multiprocessing or concurrent.futures.
- Custom temporal samplers to analyze populations during a simulation may be written in pure Python.
- Flexible interface for simulating models with multiple populations.
The manual can be found here.
GPLv3 or later (See COPYING)
Supported Python version
fwdpy11 is written for Python 3.
We will not modify the package to be compatible with Python 2.7.
