Mutation-selection balance and the evolutionary advantage of sex and recombination.

Abstract

Mutation-selection balance in a multi-locus system is investigated theoretically, using a modification of Bulmer's infinitesimal model of selection on a normally-distributed quantitative character, taking the number of mutations per individual (n) to represent the character value. The logarithm of the fitness of an individual with n mutations is assumed to… (More)
