SynthPop

Build Status Test Coverage

SynthPop is a reimplementation of PopGen using the modern scientific Python stack, with a focus on performance and code reusability.

The SynthPop code is a completely new implementation of the algorithms described in this reference, and the paper as well as this repository should be cited if you use SynthPop:
