Biogenesis project is a unicellular organism evolution simulator.

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.

Here are some key features of "Biogenesis":

The application should be multiplatform.
There should exist translations in many languages. At the moment, there are only Catalan, English and Spanish translations.
The representation should be abstract and simplified, but still scientifically accurate.
It should be actively maintained.
A good documentation should be enclosed with the application.
It should be amusing.
