A simple method for estimating evolutionary rates of base substitutions through comparative studies of nucleotide sequences
  • M. Kimura
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Journal of Molecular Evolution
  • 1 December 1980
SummarySome simple formulae were obtained which enable us to estimate evolutionary distances in terms of the number of nucleotide substitutions (and, also, the evolutionary rates when the divergenceExpand

THE NUMBER OF ALLELES THAT CAN BE MAINTAINED IN A FINITE POPULATION.
T has sometimes been suggested that the wild-type allele is not a single entity, I but rather a population of different isoalleles that are indistinguishable by any ordinary procedure. With hundredsExpand

By using two models of evolutionary base substitutions--"three-substitution-type" and "two-frequency-class" models--some formulae are derived which permit a simple estimation of the evolutionaryExpand

  • 17 February 1968
Calculating the rate of evolution in terms of nucleotide substitutions seems to give a value so high that many of the mutations involved must be neutral ones.

A model of mutation appropriate to estimate the number of electrophoretically detectable alleles in a finite population*.
A new model of mutational production of alleles was proposed which may be appropriate to estimate the number of electrophoretically detectable alleles maintained in a finite population. The modelExpand
