Population Genetics

Population genetics is the study of genetic variation in populations. This simulation allows the user to observe the frequencies of two alleles over time. A population that does not experience change over time is said to be in genetic equilibrium, while changes represent evolution. Genetic drift, natural selection, and mutation can be tested using this simulation. The Resources page and Google Drive have a few options for student labs. See the population genetics evolution blog post for additional information about the set-up of the simulation.
