Welcome to Rarecoal’s Documentation!

Rarecoal is a software to model the population history of large sets of genomic samples from different populations. The main tool is called rarecoal and is maintained in the rarecoal github repository. Additional tools to prepare data for usage in rarecoal are maintained in the rarecoal-tools github repository. The project has been first reported in our publication on a genetic analyses of ancient Anglo-Saxon genomes from England, and further developed as reported in a recent preprint. The mathematical derivations can be found in the main github repository in the doc directory.


This documentation is written for rarecoal version 1.5.0, and rarecoal-tools version 1.2.7.
