There are lots of population genetics simulators available as both standalone programs and online offerings. However, I decided that I wanted to make my own. So here is my Fisher-Wright model basic population genetics simulator. I thought it might be a fun way to try out a new package called “shiny”. Shiny is a package from the developers of RStudio. It provides an easy way to create interactive web pages that draw on R for generating the displayed content. These can be run locally by anyone that has the Shiny package installed or you can set up a shiny server and host them as webpages that will use an instance of R on the server to generate the displayed content. So here is what it looks like in action:
This isn't on the CRAN version of evobiR yet but if you want to play with it you can get it by installing through GitHub.
Here are links to some other useful simulation software:
