  1. Moths and Frogs and E. coli, Oh My!: Agent-based Modeling of Evolutionary Systems

    03 Nov 2021 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Alexis Garretson*1, Lorelei D. Crerar1

    George Mason University

    In evolution classrooms, introducing and reinforcing the idea of genetic drift and random selection can be challenging, as can be reinforcing appropriate mental models of evolution. Agent-based...

  3. Furry with a chance of evolution: Exploring genetic drift with tuco-tucos

    28 Aug 2021 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):

    By Jeremy Hsu1, Mays Imad2, Kerianne M Wilson*3

    1. Chapman University 2. Pima Community College 3. University of California Irvine

    Genetic drift is an important mechanism of evolution, yet undergraduates often fail to understand how it leads to evolutionary change due in part to its random nature. This lesson plan describes a...

    This resource has been updated - find the current version here: https://qubeshub.org/qubesresources/publications/842A Hardy-Weinberg based population genetics simulator. This program assumes a single gene and two alleles. Simulation of allele frequency changes similar to...

  8. Genetic Drift Simulation - NetLogo

    23 Jun 2016 | | 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 a...
