SMARTPOP (Simulating Mating Alliances as a Reproductive Tactic for Populations) is a fast and flexible forward-in-time simulator for population genetics. Specially developed for speed, it is available in serial and parallel versions. Developed for anthropological inference on human populations, SMARTPOP simulates individuals with sequences of sex-linked DNA (mitochondria, X and Y chromosomes) and autosomes. Studies of social dynamics are enabled using flexible demographic models and social rules of mating.
