Modelling Stochastic Clonal Interference

  title={Modelling Stochastic Clonal Interference},
  author={Paulo R. A. Campos and Christoph Adami and Claus O. Wilke},
We study the competition between several advantageous mutants in an asexual population (clonal interference) as a function of the time between the appearance of the mutants ∆t, their selective advantages, and the rate of deleterious mutations. We find that the overall probability of fixation (the probability that at least one of the mutants becomes the ancestor of the entire population) does not depend on the time interval between the appearance of these mutants, and equals the probability that… CONTINUE READING
