The libsequence home page
This is the homepage for libsequence, which is a C++ library for evolutionary genetics.
The current “master” branch of the library is 1.8.3. This version represents a major change to the code base. The biggest change is that the library no longer requires boost or the GSL libraries. It still requires zlib. See the Revision History section in the README, which you can find at the GitHub repo for the project.
The library code is here
Programs using the library
