Genetic Drift

This simulation illustrates how allele frequencies change over time as a result of genetic drift in small populations. Users may select from three different starting allele frequenciese (0.1, 0.5, 0.9), five different population sizes (10, 25, 50, 100, 250), and three different numbers of generations for the simulation (50, 100, 250). Results from up to eight simulations are displayed simultaneously in different colors....
