This Excel workbook simulates evolution of a single gene with three alleles. The user assigns fitness values to each of the six possible genotypes, then enters starting allele frequencies for each of up to 22 individual populations. The program tracks each population through 100 generations and plots the results in a ternary graph. Additional output includes a 3D adaptive landscape and a time plot of local populations' mean fitness, genetic variance in fitness, and expected heterozygosity.

The Biosphere 2 project of the early 1990s failed dramatically because the planners overlooked the metabolic activities of naturally occurring soil microorganisms. The simulation program SimBio 2 allows us to gain insights into the complexity of this closed ecosystem. Here we can manipulate and monitor variables within a virtual Biosphere 2. We will explore oxygen availability by taking a closer look at the relationship between organic materials and living microbial populations in the soil. Alternative models can be constructed and simulated. * run simulations of a model of the Biosphere 2 to explore the unexpected impact of microbial metabolism on closed system dynamics

From 1991 until 1993 the Biosphere system supported people, plants, and animals. Experiments offered the opportunity for tracking in great detail the interactions among land and water ecosystems and the atmosphere.SimBio2 offers several scenarios in which students can generate simulation graphs using actual data from the Biosphere 2 experiment. Studentscan explore some of the problems that affected Biosphere 2 such as higher levels of carbon dioxide than expected and the resulting decrease oxygen. Students can also create their own models and experiment with alternative strategies.

Action Potential Experiments is a demonstration/simulation laboratory for neurophysiology based on the 'sodium theory' as originally formulated and tested by A. L. Hodgkin and his colleagues. The application includes simulations of the original experiments of Hodgkins and his colleagues, and of the classic voltage clamp and patch clamp experiments and an animated illustration of the 'sodium theory' explanation of Nernst potentials for potassium and sodium ions. The student can perform simple ion concentration experiments to test the predictions of the theory.
