BIOMURFFS: Simulated evolution system.

This program illustrates Richard Dawkins' principle of cumulative small change as a mechanism for Darwinian evolution. In essence, the principle posits that a succession of small changes can yield a significant and radical cumulative effect. This program is similar to Dawkins' Blind Watchmaker program.
