Heterogeneous patterns of microsatellite evolution present a major challenge for the development of mutation models, and an improved understanding of the determinants of variation in mutation rates and patterns among loci, alleles and taxa is required. A 19th Century bottleneck associated with the introduction of clones of the snail Potamopyrgus antipodarum to Britain presented an opportunity to reconstruct recent microsatellite evolution within the most common apomictic lineage. There was… CONTINUE READING
