Abstract

Contact between populations and subsequent gene flow generates admixed populations, and the detection and analysis of such events has been one of the major applications for population genomic data analysis in more than a decade. Several methods are available for this type of analysis, based on different model assumptions and input data. The goal of this project is to simulate genomic data under various different demographic scenarios and then compare different methods for the downstream analysis.
