Building a forward simulator#

This tutorial shows how tskit can be used to build your own forwards-in-time tree sequence recording simulator from scratch.

Note

If you are simply trying to obtain a tree sequence which is the result of a forwards-in-time simulation, this can be done by using one of the highly capable forwards-in-time genetic simulators that already exist, such as SLiM or fwdpy11. Documentation and tutorials for these tools exist on their respective websites. This tutorial focusses instead on illustrating the general principles that lie behind such simulators.
