Pleiotropic consequences of adaptation across gradations of environmental stress in budding yeast

Adaptation to one environment often results in fitness gains and losses in other conditions. To characterize how these consequences of adaptation depend on the physical similarity between environments, we evolved 180 populations of Saccharomyces cerevisiae at different degrees of stress induced by either salt, temperature, pH, or glucose depletion. We measure how the fitness of clones adapted to each environment depends on the intensity of the corresponding type of stress. We find that clones…

The population genetics of pleiotropy, and the evolution of collateral resistance and sensitivity in bacteria
This work derives simple statistics of the JDFE that predict the expected slope, variance and co-variance of non-home fitness trajectories of Escherichia coli knock-out collection in the presence of antibiotics and provides simple theoretically grounded guidelines for designing robust sequential drug protocols.
The population genetics of collateral resistance and sensitivity
It is shown that many resistance mutations in Escherichia coli against various antibiotics indeed have diverse collateral effects, and it is proposed to characterize such diversity with a joint distribution of fitness effects (JDFE) and develop a theory for describing and predicting collateral evolution based on simple statistics of the JDFE.

Evolution of pleiotropic costs in experimental populations
It is found that the sign of pleiotropic effects for fitness following adaptation to a new environment can change during long‐term adaptation to an original environment, and the size of the fitness changes in galactose and glucose became relatively smaller as the sizes of direct effects on Galactose increased.
Interactions Between Stressful Environment and Gene Deletions Alleviate the Expected Average Loss of Fitness in Yeast
The maximum growth rate of single- and double-gene deletion strains of yeast in several stress-inducing treatments, including poor nutrients, elevated temperature, high salinity, and the addition of caffeine, concluded that the negative impact of metabolic disturbances is absolutely and relatively highest when growth is fastest.
It is demonstrated that an essential protein can harbor adaptive potential upon an environmental challenge, and a remarkable fit of the data is reported to a version of Fisher's geometric model that focuses on the fitness trade‐offs between mutations in different environments.
Cost of Adaptation and Fitness Effects of Beneficial Mutations in Pseudomonas fluorescens
It is found that G×E is remarkably similar between the two sets of mutants and that beneficial mutants are not typically associated with large costs of adaptation, and distributions of (beneficial) fitness effects predicted by a landscape model assuming multiple traits underlying fitness and a single optimum often provide a good description of the empirical distributions in data.
Hunger Artists: Yeast Adapted to Carbon Limitation Show Trade-Offs under Carbon Sufficiency
It is shown that yeast evolved under aerobic glucose limitation show surprisingly few trade-offs when cultured in other carbon-limited environments, under either aerobic or anaerobic conditions, and concludes that yeasts that evolve high fitness under one resource-limiting condition also become more fit under other resource- Limiting conditions, but may pay a fitness cost when those same resources are abundant.
The population genetics of ecological specialization in evolving Escherichia coli populations
This work analysed the decay of unused catabolic functions in 12 lines of Escherichia coli propagated on glucose for 20,000 generations and found that antagonistic pleiotropy appears more important than mutation accumulation for the Decay of unused dogmatic functions in these populations.
Different tradeoffs result from alternate genetic adaptations to a common environment
This study suggests that two different genetic pathways toward high-temperature adaptation have contrasting effects with respect to thermal tradeoffs, and combines measurements of phenotypic variation with genome-scale approaches to show that some populations adapt with fitness tradeoffs at low temperatures, whereas others adapt without a measurable tradeoff.
An experimental test of evolutionary trade-offs during temperature adaptation
We used experimental evolution to test directly the important and commonplace evolutionary hypothesis that adaptation, increased fitness within the selective environment, is accompanied by trade-off,
Parallel Genetic Changes and Nonparallel Gene–Environment Interactions Characterize the Evolution of Drug Resistance in Yeast
Both positive and negative effects on tolerance to other harsh environments for mutations in the different ergosterol genes are uncovered, indicating that these beneficial mutations have effects that differ in sign among environmental challenges.
Global epistasis makes adaptation predictable despite sequence-level stochasticity
Results show that beneficial mutations affecting a variety of biological processes are globally coupled; they interact strongly, but only through their combined effect on fitness, which follows a predictable trajectory even though sequence-level adaptation is stochastic.
