THE “JACKPROT” SIMULATION

The Jackprot is a didactic slot machine simulation that illustrates  how mutation rate coupled with natural selection  can interact to generate highly specialized proteins. Conceptualized by Guillermo Paz-y-Miño C. (University of Massachusetts Dartmouth), Avelina Espinosa (Roger Williams University) and Chunyan Y. Bai (Roger Williams University), the Jackprot uses simplified slot-machine probability principles to demonstrate how mutation rate […]
