This worksheet simulates the molecular evolution of DNA sequences. The program begins with a single (random) sequence, then follows that sequence through time as it reproduces and mutates. Eventually, up to 20 evolutionary related sequences are generated. EvolSeq then calculates the genetic distances between each pair of DNA sequences, and also between the associated amino acid sequences.
