Logo for Natural selection
This simulation illustrates how allele frequencies change over time in response to natural selection on diploid genotypes. Users may select from five different fitnesses (0.8, 0.9, 1.0, 1.1, 1.2) for each of the three genotypes. The number of generations is fixed at 100. Results from up to eight different iterations are displayed simultaneously in different colors.
