PopCycle was the prototype for the Hardy, Weinberg, and Kuru lab in the EvoBeaker package from SimBiotic Software. A sampler of SimBiotic products is available on request.

I am no longer developing or supporting PopCycle. It is still available here, however, for those who want to use it.

PopCycle is free. You may give it to anyone you like, so long as you distribute it as a stand-alone application. You may not sell it. You may not include it in a collection with other software, regardless of whether you are selling the collection or giving it away.

I make no warranties or guarantees about the quality of PopCycle, or the accuracy of the simulations it runs. Use it in good health, but at your own risk.
