Two-Locus Selection - Simulation

Adjust the initial allelic frequencies and the fitness values to the right:

For best results, begin by setting the fitness values to 1.0, and initial allelic frequencies to 0.5. Then, decrease one or more of the fitness values by a small amount.

The initial allelic and genotypic frequencies are displayed below the graph whereas the run-time frequencies are displayed above the graph.

In this simulation, two loci are subjected to independent selection pressures in a population of 5000 individuals. Because the two loci in this simulation are independent with respect to selection gene frequencies at each locus will be identical to the case of one-locus selection. Two-locus genotype frequencies can be found by multiplying the two corresponding one-locus genotype frequencies.

The background mortality rate for this simulation is 0.1.
