Comparative evolutionary genetics of spontaneous mutations affecting fitness in rhabditid nematodes.

Abstract

Deleterious mutations are of fundamental importance to all aspects of organismal biology. Evolutionary geneticists have expended tremendous effort to estimate the genome-wide rate of mutation and the effects of new mutations on fitness, but the degree to which genomic mutational properties vary within and between taxa is largely unknown, particularly in… (More)
