Classical Genetics Simulator

Classical Genetics Simulator

A customizable teaching tool that simulates genetics inheritance including linkage over generations. An instructor can set broad or specific parameters for the virtual populations that their students examine. Model organisms such as Arabidopsis, Drosophila, or mouse can be used, and the genetic properties can be made relatively easy or complicated, depending on the students' level. It is user-friendly, web-based application and can be used with either PC or Mac.
