NAME

aevol - an in silico experimental evolution platform

SYNOPSIS

aevol_propagate -h or --help
 
aevol_propagate -V or --version
 
aevol_propagate [-v] [-g GENER] [-i INDIR] [ -o OUTDIR] [-S GENERALSEED]
 
aevol_propagate [-v] [-g GENER] [-i INDIR] [ -o OUTDIR] [-s SELSEED] [-m MUTSEED] [ -t STOCHSEED] [-e ENVVARSEED] [-n ENVNOISESEED]

DESCRIPTION

Aevol is a simulation platform that allows one to let populations of digital organisms evolve in different conditions and study experimentally the mechanisms responsible for the structuration of the genome and the transcriptome.
aevol_propagate
creates a fresh copy of the experiment as it was at the given generation. The generation number of the copy will be reset to 0. If you use aevol_propagate repeatedly to initialize several simulations, you should specify a different seed for each simulation, otherwise all simulations will yield exactly the same results. You can use the option -S to do so. In this case, the random drawings will be different for all random processes enabled in your simulations (mutations, stochastic gene expression, selection, migration, environmental variation, environmental noise). Alternatively, to change the random drawings for specific random processes only, do not use -S but the options -m, -s, -t, -e, -n (see below).

OPTIONS

-h, --help
print help, then exit
-V, --version
print version number, then exit
-v, --verbose
be verbose
-g, --gener GENER
 
specify generation number (default: that contained in file last_gener.txt, if any)
-i, --in INDIR
 
specify input directory (default ".")
-o, --out OUTDIR
 
specify output directory (default "./output")
-S, --general-seed GENERALSEED
 
specify an integer to be used as a seed for random numbers. If you use aevol_propagate repeatedly to initialize several simulations, you should specify a different seed for each simulation, otherwise all simulations will yield exactly the same results. If you specify this general seed, random drawings will be different for all random processes enabled in your simulations (mutations, stochastic gene expression, selection, migration, environmental variation, environmental noise). To change the random drawings for a specific random process only, do not use -S but the options below.
-s, --sel-seed SELSEED
 
specify an integer as a seed for random numbers needed for selection and migration (if spatial structure is enabled).
-m, --mut-seed MUTSEED
 
specify an integer as a seed for random numbers needed for mutations.
-t, --stoch-seed STOCHSEED
 
specify an integer as a seed for random numbers needed for stochastic gene expression.
-e, --env-var-seed ENVVARSEED
 
specify an integer as a seed for random numbers needed for environmental variation.
-n, --env-noise-seed ENVNOISESEED
 
specify an integer as a seed for random numbers needed for environmental noise.
