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.
