This app contains simulation models for genetic drift, gene flow, and natural selection, the three core population-level processes that can lead to evolution. Within the app, users can change initial conditions for allele frequencies and the key parameters that influence rates of evolution to run their own simulations and observe how these processes influence shifts in allele frequency. The app includes separate simulations for each individual evolutionary process, and a final simulation that puts all three processes together. This app was developed for use in Biological Sciences 111: Introductory Organismal Biology at Wellesley College by Jackie Hatala Matthes as a pedagogical tool for introducing students to simulation modeling.
