Abstract:We discuss a model of population dynamics under selection pressure from a changing environment. The population, subject to mutations, is composed of diploidal organisms reproducing quasi-sexually (two parents, recombination but no sexes) and with overlapping generations. Two cases are considered - in one we do not influence the dynamics of the population, while in the other we perform eugenics, i.e. we eliminate all individuals which have phenotypes not conforming to the optimal one at… 
GENETIC MANIPULATION AND THE POPULATION'S FATE
TLDR
It is shown that the systematic phenotype improvement is the most successful strategy in the long run and the elimination of the ill-fitted almost always leads to a disaster.
A Populations Evolution Study Using the Genotype Frequency Data of Single Nucleotide Polymorphism from Y-Chromosome
TLDR
The phylogenies tree of four populations is constructed using the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotype frequency of human's Y- chromosome provided by the international Hapmap project, and a mathematical model is proposed to calculate the distance of any two races for all SNP genotypes.
COMPLEX BEHAVIOR OF A PREDATOR-PREY MODEL WITH DISCRETE GENOTYPE
Inspired by the work of Ray et al., we study a model of predator-prey dynamics that incorporates the effects of a discrete genotype. We thoroughly analyze the many features of the model, and show
