- A computer program to simulate selective breeding schemes for animals and plants
ADAM is a computer program that models selective breeding schemes for animals and plants (ADAM-plant) using stochastic simulation. The program simulates a population of animals or plants and traces the genetic changes in the population under different selective breeding scenarios. It caters for different population structures, genetic models, selection strategies, and mating designs. ADAM can be used to evaluate breeding schemes and generate genetic data to test statistical tools. For further information and details please consult the manual.
