'CoaSim' is a tool for simulating the coalescent process with recombination and gene conversion under the assumption of exponential population growth. It constructs the ancestral recombination graph for a given number of individuals and uses this to simulate samples of SNP and micro-satellite haplotypes/genotypes. The generated sample can afterwards be separated in cases and controls, depending on states of selected individual markers. The tool can accordingly also be used to construct cases and control data sets for association studies.
