Evo Simulator – Simulation of Spatial Self-Organization in a Stepping Stone Environment

I worked as a research assistant in biology department for two years. I developed a simulation tool for bioinformatics. I worked on a project called Beetle World. I developed a C++ program simulating an experiment where beetles move between plates. In this experiment, we run the simulator for several generations of beetles, and analyzed the evolutionary behavior of beetles, and how the beetles get clustered during several generations. The project Beetle world evolved into another project called EvoSimulator, which is more generic. In this project, instead of beetles and plates, we have individuals stepping stones. I developed the EvoSimulator in C# and Silverlight to provide more visual insight to the users.
