Projects / Biogenesis


Biogenesis simulates in a visual fashion the processes involved in the evolution of unicellular organisms in nature. It tries to be a didactic approximation to the ideas of mutation or evolution, and can be enjoyed also as an entertainment. It's intended to serve as a support to show students some basic biological facts. The idea of Biogenesis is taken from Primordial Life, but it's an independent project.
