Analysis of mitochondrial DNA indicates that all humankind traces back to common female ancestor referred to as the "mitochondrial eve." This simulation shows the process prospectively, starting with 10 female parental mitochondrial genotypes, and with random mating tracing the number of mitochondrial types in each succeeding generation. A record is kept of outcomes, and different "runs" can be compared to show the randomness of the process. Thought questions and reading references are included. A short discussion of the construction of this learning object is at http://www.cals.ncsu.edu/gn/ex/mit-eve-disc.html
