Likelihood Analysis with Metropolis Algorithm using Random Coalescence

LAMARC is a package of programs for computing population parameters, such as population size, population growth rate and migration rates by using likelihoods for samples of data (sequences, microsatellites, and electrophoretic polymorphisms) from populations. It approximates the summation of likelihood over all possible gene genealogies that could explain the observed sample. The programs are memory-intensive but can run effectively on workstations or modern microcomputers.
