TreesimJ is a flexible, individual-based population genetic simulator. It tracks the state of a population evolving in forward time via discrete, Wright-Fisher generations. It also maintains the full genealogical tree of the population and allows for collecting sample trees which can be analyzed, exported and logged. It can also simulate evolving DNA under a variety of assumptions regarding mutation and selection. TreesimJ is very flexible, meaning that a wide variety of fitness models, demographic models, and data collectors are supported, and new models are easy to write. The application also sports an intuitive graphical interface, so users unfamiliar with the command line or XML can easily use the program to generate and analyze genetic data.
