In the context of population genetics, active information can be extended to measure the change of information of a given event (e.g., fixation of an allele) from a neutral model in which only genetic drift is taken into account to a non-neutral model that includes other sources of frequency variation (e.g., selection and mutation). In this paper we illustrate active information in population genetics through the Wright-Fisher model.
