Migrate: MIGRATION RATE AND POPULATION SIZE ESTIMATION using Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation

This application can get occasionally caught in an infinite loop during startup and fill your alloted space on a filesystem. To avoid this problem, please ask the program to write a parmfile. Then use only the parmfile to run again, instead of using the input. This requires killing the job and then starting again using the parmfile.

The infinite loop problem looks like this:

PARAMETERS

---------------------------

Start parameters:

1 Use a simple estimate of theta as start?

Estimate with FST (Fw/Fb) measure

2 Use a simple estimate of migration rate as start?

Estimate with FST (Fw/Fb) measure

Gene flow parameter and Mutation rate variation among loci:

3 Use M for the gene flow parameter YES [M=m/mu]
4 Mutation rate is Constant

FST-Calculation (for START value):

5 Method: Variable M, Theta is the same for all populations

6 Print FST table: NO

Migration model:

7 Model is set to Full migration matrix model

and migration rates are symmetric.

(Number of populations >= 2)

(M)igration rate can be asymmetric

and Theta is the same for both populations

(Number of populations = 2)

===> Specify the migration model as an {n x n} matrix

Theta values are on the diagonal, migration rates are

off-diagonal, spaces (" "), "{", "}", or newlines

are allowed, but not necessary.

Syntax:

* = independent parameter

0 = (zero) not estimated]
c = (constant) not estimated, taken from start-parameter]
s = symmetric migration rates (M=m/mu)

S = symmetric migration rates (xNm)

m = average of each label group [not k, or s]
