  1. Avida-ED

    06 Oct 2017 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): Robert T Pennock, Diane Blackwood

    Avida-ED is an award-winning educational application developed at Michigan State University for undergraduate biology courses to help students learn about evolution and scientific method by allowing them to design and perform experiments to test hypotheses about evolutionary mechanisms using...

  2. Web Popgen

    11 Jun 2017 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): Bob Sheehy

    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...

  3. Genetic Drift Simulation - NetLogo

    23 Jun 2016 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): Tony Weisstein

    This model simulates genetic drift in a population.  The user can control the population size, whether the population is subdivided into separate local populations, and the amount of gene flow (if any) between local populations.  Phenotype frequency in each subpopulation is plotted as...


    24 Jan 2016 | Software (Off-site)

    GENI-ACT allows collaborative genome annotation. Researchers or students can collectively suggest changes to an existing genome with supporting evidence. Changes can be ported back to genbank by exporting to a sequin file format. GENI-ACT also has ported the education components from IMG-ACT....

  5. Populus: Simulations of Population Biology

    05 Oct 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): D. N. Alstad

    This resource has been updated - find the current version here: Populus software contains a set of simulations that we use to teach population biology and evolutionary ecology at the University of Minnesota. Simulation models may be chosen from a...

  6. Augmented Reality Metabolic Pathways (ARMET)

    25 Aug 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): Eduardo Galembeck

    The New Media Consortium (NMC) Horizon Project defines educational technology in a broad sense as tools and resources that are used to improve teaching, learning, and creative inquiry. Within the Horizon Project there are currently seven categories of technologies, tools, and strategies for...

  7. Java Applets for Power and Sample Size

    10 Mar 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): Russell Lenth

    From the website: This software is intended to be useful in planning statistical studies.  It is not intended to be used for analysis of data that have already been collected. Each selection provides a graphical interface for studying the power of one or more tests.  They include...

  8. IPMpack: an R package for Integral Projection Models

    19 Jan 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): C. Jessica E. Metcalf, Sean M. McMahon, Roberto Salguero-Gómez, Eelke Jongejans, Cory Merow

    IPMpack is an R package (R Development Core Team 2013) that allows users to build and analyse Integral Projection Models. An IPM is a demographic tool to explore the dynamics of populations where individuals' fates depend on state variables that are continuous (e.g. weight, diameter at...

  9. ABO Blood Group Frequencies

    14 Jan 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): John R. Jungck, Jennifer A. Spangenberg

    An Excel workbook in which students can calculate blood type frequencies through different approaches (Hardy-Weinberg, quadratic formula, and the EM algorithm).  The workbook shows the formulas used and various visual representations. 

  10. Birthday Problem and Class Phenotypic Probabilities

    13 Jan 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): John R. Jungck, Annelise L. Myers, Jennifer A. Spangenberg

    An Excel sheet that allows students to input class data about various phenotypic features and then calculates the probability of other people having the same phenotype.

  11. Classical Genetics Simulator

    12 Jan 2015 | Software (Off-site) | Contributor(s): Ben Adamczyk

    Students manage virtual fly populations to determine the mode of inheritance for various traits in different populations. Students seek solutions using probabilities and testing the validity of their assumptions using chi-squared analysis.
