2.  B.C. Haller, P.W. Messer. (2016). SLiM [version 2.0]. Home page: GitHub repository:

SLiM is a software framework for making forward genetic simulations. It uses the Eidos scripting language to provide highly flexible scriptability, and provides an interactive GUI environment called SLiMgui for simulation development and testing.

1.  B.C. Haller. (2016). Eidos [version 1.0]. Home page: GitHub repository:

Eidos is a general-purpose scripting language. It was developed for the SLiM project, but can be used in other contexts too. It is designed for tight scripting integration with application code, including exposing application objects directly as objects in script.

Not peer-reviewed (blog posts)

The Hendry lab at McGill hosts a blog about eco-evolutionary dynamics called eco-evo evo-eco. In addition, I have kept two blogs so far about science-related travel, one for a class I took in the Amazon, and one related to research collaborations in Europe, particularly my participation in the Young Scientists Summer Program at IIASA in Austria.

See those blogs for many more posts; I've put only the relatively science-focused posts here.
