Pepper moth simulation showing natural selection at work.

Altruist is a software package for simulation of genetic evolution in structured or viscous populations. The purpose is... see more

An interactive game where students examine natural selection. The goal is for their species to survive a million years.... see more

You can interact with the animation to learn about how evolution affects populations. The population breeds, mutates,... see more

Students play an interactive game, “Fitness Fever” to learn the underlying genetic variation that natural selection acts... see more

This activity has students participating as one of three predator species as they attempt to capture as many individuals... see more

A description of the peppered moth example of natural selection along with a simulation

This simulation illustrates the interaction between natural selection and genetic drift. Users may select from three... see more

The mitochondrial genotype is inherited through the cytoplasm, and so follows the female line through the generations.... see more

A Step by step tutorial of Darwinian principles of Natural Selection that link the direct relation to Evolution. This... see more

This simulation illustrates how allele frequencies change over time as a result of genetic drift in small populations.... see more

This simulation illustrates the interaction between mutation and genetic drift. Users may select from three different... see more

This simulation illustrates the interaction between migration and genetic drift. Users may select from three different... see more

A Hardy-Weinberg based population genetics simulator. This program assumes a single gene and two alleles. Simulation of... see more

The Y chromosome is inherited from father to son, and so follows the male line through the generations. Due to random... see more

This simulation illustrates how allele frequencies change over time in response to natural selection on diploid... see more

This simulation illustrates the response to selection in a quantitative trait. Users may select from several different... see more

In this animation and informative page, students will be able to learn how predators and the environment in which rock... see more

ForensicEA is a simulation program that models the evolution of viruses. Using the program a patient is infected with a... see more
