Specifying a model

Types of demographic models

GADMA could infer two base types of demographic models:

  • Demographic model with structire (up to 3 populations). It is a more flexible model type as dynamics of population size change could be inferred and it has a lot of options for parameters.
  • Custom demographic model. It is a usual user-specified model like in dadi, moments and other tools for demographic inference. Using such a model will give more control over parameters and could be used for inference of more than 3 populations but is less flexible.
