coala: A Framework for Coalescent Simulation

Coalescent simulators can rapidly simulate biological sequences evolving according to a given model of evolution. You can use this package to specify such models, to conduct the simulations and to calculate additional statistics from the results. It relies on existing simulators for doing the simulation, and currently supports the programs 'ms', 'msms' and 'scrm'. It also supports finite-sites mutation models by combining the simulators with the program 'seq-gen'.
