MUTATIONAL BURDEN SIMULATOR


written by David Reich

Simulating selection and dominance in a non-equilibrium demography

How does a population bottleneck impact the mutation burden under differing dominance and selection coefficients?

Below is the code for burden_sim, a simulation of the mutation burden for two populations after a split, as described in Balick, et al., Dominance of Deleterious Alleles Controls the Response to a Population Bottleneck (PLOS Genetics 2015). This simulation was also used in Do, et al., No evidence that selection has been less effective at removing deleterious mutations in Europeans than in Africans (Nature Genetics 2015).
