Comparison to other population genetics simulation programs

FFPopSim aims at begin simple and efficient. There are a number of other program that allow the user to specify more complex evolution scenarios or have been designed for a particular research questions. The simuPOP website maintains a list of such programs. The main differences of FFPopSim compared to those tools are:

FFPopSim is the only flexible program (we know of) that can simulate the full-genotype space.
