B3GET simulates populations of virtual organisms evolving over generations, whose evolutionary outcomes reflect the selection pressures of their environment. The model simulates several factors considered important in biology, including life history trade-offs, investment in fighting ability and aggression, sperm competition, infanticide, and competition over access to food and mates. Downloaded materials include a starting genotype and population files. Edit the these files and see what changes occur in the behavior of virtual populations!

Version 1.0.2 includes an updated file organizational scheme with a single metafile.csv in the “../data/” folder, optional controls for data collection including simulation-level, group-level, and individual-level output, and all button mouse clicks are now stored in metafile. Additional useful-commands are now available, including a help-me function that prints out a guide for commands and their uses.
