Nature, in Code
Did you ever wonder what laws govern nature and life? How natural selection influences populations? Whether gene mutations are useful?
Computer simulations can answer these questions and even predict which genetic characteristics will be transmitted to future generations. Today, this revolutionary tool is as essential for scientist as are theory and experiments.
Come and join us, code your own simulations and share the results with your friends!
