Individual based simulations of hybridizing populations, where the accumulation of junctions is tracked. Furthermore, mathematical equations are provided to verify simulation outcomes. Both simulations and mathematical equations are based on Janzen et al. (2018)

Version 1.6 : Improved the recombination function run twice as fast
Version 1.5.1: Added option to track the true number of junctions
Version 1.5 : Added simulation functions to simulate phased an unphased data, including phasing error
Version 1.5 : Added support for inferring the time since admixture based on phased and unphased data.
Version 1.4 : Added support for estimating the number of junctions, and simulating the number of junctions, under a backcrossing scheme, using the code supplied in Lavretsky et al. 2019.
Version 1.3 : Added support for estimating the time since admixture using unphased data.
Version 1.3 : Added individual based simulations returning phased and unphased data.
Version 1.3 : Updated entire package to Roxygen.
Version 1.2 : Added support for estimating the expected number of junctions for arbitrarily distributed markers.
Version 1.1 : Updated random number generation for picking recombination sites. Previous implementation was limited to 6 digit precision, current precision is at least double that, minimizing the probability of recombination occur twice in the same location for an infinite chromosome.
