Characteristic time in quasispecies evolution.

Abstract

The time a phenotype takes to achieve a stationary state from an initial condition depends on multiple factors. In particular, it is a function of both its fitness and its mutation rate. We evaluate the average time, referred to as the characteristic time, T(c), that the system takes to reach a final steady state of simple models of populations formed by… (More)
