Hardy-Weinberg Model

The following is a model of a gene(s) in a given population of organisms over many generations. This can be used to illustrate Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.

Options

Ploidy

This controls the number of sets of chromosomes and therefore, the number of alleles found in each organism. For example, 2 = diploid.

Genes

This controls the number of genes to track in the organism. The genes are considered unlinked and have a recombination frequency of 50%.

Alleles

This represents the number of alleles in the population for each unlinked gene.

Gene 0

Starting Population's Allele Frequency

Survival

This controls the chance of survival of the offspring. This can be used to model natural, artificial or sexual selection.
A value of 1 means the offspring will always survive. A value less than one will lower the chance of survival and could cause a smaller population for that generation.
Homozygous Survival Rate
Heterozygous Survival Rate

Population

The number of individuals in the population.

Generations

The number of generation to run the model.

Output

This controls how much data is shown. Higher levels of data may slow down the speed.
