Evolve allows students to model evolution and get quick results from population genetics experiments.

With Evolve, you can control:

  • the starting population size
  • overall population size
  • intensity of natural selection
  • pattern of inheritance
  • proportion of migration in a hypothetical population

Learners could develop:

  • a better understanding of evolutionary processes and their interactions
  • the ability to differentiate between the effects of fecundity and survival in natural selection
  • a firmer grasp of some important concepts of Mendelian genetics
  • a greater understanding of experimental design and the use of models
