In contrast to the common assumption that each new mutant results from a unique, independent mutation event, clusters of identical premeiotic mutant alleles are common. Clusters can produce large numbers of related individuals carrying identical copies of the same new genetic change. By entering the gene pool in multiple copies at one time, clusters can influence fundamental processes of population genetics. Here we report evidence that clusters can increase the arrival and fixation… CONTINUE READING
