A Hardy-Weinberg based population genetics simulator. This program assumes a single gene and two alleles. Simulation of allele frequency changes similar to Felsenstein's Simul8 or PopG. Simulates changes in allele frequency based on violations of assumptions of Hardy-Weinberg.  A user may vary starting allele frequency, population size, genotypic fitness, mutation and migration rates and bottleneck population size. Allele frequencies for p and q are graphed for up to 5 populations. When a single population is simulated both allele frequency and genotype frequencies are graphed.
