For the second simulation i altered the mutation rate

until cycle 100, which represented 100 generations and then recorded my results. For the second simulation, I altered the mutation rate to .8 while keeping the selection strength the same to ensure that the alleles would only be affected by the mutation. For the final simulation I ran the test again with the same altered mutation value of 0.8 so I can verify my results.
 Results & DiscussionAllele frequencies changed over 100 generations in each of the three simulations. In figure 1, the control had no altered values. Phenotype one and two both decreased while three and four increased. For about fifty generations, alleles three and four both stabilized and remained constant just until the end. Testing the alleles with a mutation rate of 0.8 instead of 0.3 had different results. Trials two and three had similar results to each other but different from the control as I expected. Allele one completely disappeared while allele two decreased and remained at an extremely low frequency for the remaining generations. With an increase in the Figure 1. In trial 1,100 generations are tested with the default settings. This figure represents the control with no altered values.Figure 2. This figure represents trial 2 with the altered mutation of .8 instead of .3. The selection strength remains the same and 100 generations (cycles) are still tested for.Figure 3. Trial 3 was tested with the same altered mutation value of .8 is tested again as in trial 2. The results are similar to trial 2.
mutation rate, alleles three and four were favored as they increased in the populations. According
