Darwin ecosystem model: a computational approach to modeling natural selection of marine ecosystems

This grant to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences supports further development of the open source microbial ecosystem model Darwin. Darwin computational modeling enables studies of virtual ecosystems through the integration of marine microbial genomic information, ocean circulation patterns and geochemical cycles in an effort to mimic natural selection.
