M ay 2 00 1 Field theory for a reaction - diffusion model of quasispecies dynamics

Abstract

RNA viruses are known to replicate with extremely high mutation rates. These rates are actually close to the so-called error threshold. This threshold is in fact a critical point beyond which genetic information is lost through a second-order phase transition, which has been dubbed the “error catastrophe.” Here we explore this phenomenon using a field… (More)
