bnpsd: Simulate Genotypes from the BN-PSD Admixture Model
The Pritchard-Stephens-Donnelly (PSD) admixture model has k intermediate subpopulations from which n individuals draw their alleles dictated by their individual-specific admixture proportions. The BN-PSD model additionally imposes the Balding-Nichols (BN) allele frequency model to the intermediate populations, which therefore evolved independently from a common ancestral population T with subpopulation-specific FST (Wright's fixation index) parameters. The BN-PSD model can be used to yield complex population structures. This simulation approach is now extended to subpopulations related by a tree. Method described in Ochoa and Storey (2021) <doi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1009241>.
