PopG 4.01 Description:
The PopG program simulates the evolution of random-mating populations with two alleles, arbitrary fitnesses of the three genotypes, an arbitrary mutation rate, an arbitrary rate of migration between the replicate populations, and finite population size. The PopG programs simulate ten simultaneously evolving populations with you specifying the population size, the fitnesses of the three genotypes, the mutation rates in both directions (from A to a and from a to A), and the initial gene frequency. They also ask for a migration rate among all the populations, which will make their gene frequencies more similar to each other. Much of the time (but not always!) you will want to set this migration rate to zero. In most respects the program is self-explanatory.
