The nature of the mutation process matters
AbstractThe incorporation of small mutation rates has significantly improved the predictive capacity of evolutionary models. Bergin and Lipman , however, demonstrate that this improvement depends entirely on the nature of the mutation process. We provide a constructive corroboration of their result: we derive matching mutation rates for each desired set of stochastic stable states.
