We considered genetic diversity within the framework of the Penna model. Using the entropy of genetic diversity as measure, we found genetic diversity to increase with reproductive age R
, for the case where the threshold parameter T
is less than R
. In addition, we found the saturation population to decrease with increasing genetic diversity.
