Name: Monte Carlo Simulations of Allele Frequencies
ID: m13540
Language: English (en)
Summary: In this assignment you will apply Monte Carlo computer simulations to study the effects of genetic drift and selection pressure on a single locus with two alleles: “A” and “a”. You will be running these simulations on a computer using a simple simulation program written in Python (see appendix if this is not on your computer). Note that you do not need to know how to program in Python in order to do this lab. Each exercise will involve editing one or two lines at the top of the file and then running the simulation for a few minutes and analyzing the output
