Pyslim can be installed using the standard pip distribution method:

python3 -m pip install pyslim

To install a different version, e.g., the 1.0 beta release whose version string is “1.0b1”, just append this, like:

python3 -m pip install pyslim==1.0b1

Alternatively, you can install from source as described in Development.


If you find a bug in pyslim or want to suggest an improvement, please open an issue on our github page. If you have a question about using tree sequences, please ask it at the tskit discussion page. Finally, questions about SLiM should be directed to the SLiM mailing list.
