The production of genetic variation is essential for the evolutionary process, but inescapably much of this variation is deleterious, and depresses the average fitness of a population below its maximal value. Haldane (1937) found for some simple models that, counterintuitively, this … Continue reading Lee Altenberg: The Deep Connection between Mutational Robustness and Mutational Time Dynamics
