Tool that simulates rat colour genetics in the NZ rat population. Play around with different genotypes and phenotypes, and explore the ways they combine!

May be expanded in future to encompass broader/international gene pools.

NOTE: Saving/loading works differently between web and Windows releases! On web browser you will be asked to copy and paste strings of text which represent rat genomes, while on Windows you will be able to save rats as files. This is due to the limitations of HTML5.

As a rat lover, I'm charmed by the precious rat art. As someone who loved 7th grade bio when we learned about genetics, I'm excited to play around & remember those lessons while ALSO looking at rats! Thank  you!
