We study the effect of spatial structure, genetic drift, mutation, and selective pressure on the evolutionary dynamics in a simplified model of asexual organisms colonizing a new territory. Under an appropriate coarse-graining, the evolutionary dynamics is related to the directed percolation processes that arise in voter models, the Domany-Kinzel (DK) model, contact process, and so on. We explore the differences between linear (flat front) expansions and the much less familiar radial (curved… Expand
Genetic Drift and Selection in Many-Allele Range Expansions
TLDR
The random walk model can act as a useful predictive tool when describing the evolutionary dynamics of range expansions composed of an arbitrary number of competing alleles with different fitnesses, as well as being used to precisely measure small selective differences between spatially competing genotypes in controlled laboratory settings.

Genetic drift and selection in many-allele range expansions
TLDR
The results suggest that the random walk model can act as a useful predictive tool for describing the evolutionary dynamics of range expansions composed of an arbitrary number of genotypes with different fitnesses. Expand
Evolution in range expansions with competition at rough boundaries.
TLDR
This work uses two complementary numerical models of range expansions: the stepping stone model, and a new interpretation of the model of directed paths in random media, in the context of a roughening population front to study the evolutionary consequences of stochastic spatial wandering at the propagating front. Expand
Clonal interference and Muller's ratchet in spatial habitats.
TLDR
This paper obtains precise predictions for the universal, non-Gaussian shape of the fitness distribution for one-dimensional habitats, which are verified by simulations and shows that the transition between the stationary and the moving state of the ratchet is governed by directed percolation.

How Obstacles Perturb Population Fronts and Alter their Genetic Structure
TLDR
It is demonstrated that frontier alleles that just graze the side of an isolated obstacle increase in abundance, a phenomenon the authors call ‘geometry-enhanced genetic drift’, complementary to the founder effect associated with spatial bottlenecks. Expand

Survival probabilities at spherical frontiers.
TLDR
It is found that mutations at linearly inflating fronts have survival probabilities enhanced by factors of 100 or more relative to mutations at treadmilling population frontiers. Expand
Bacterial range expansions on a growing front: Roughness, fixation, and directed percolation.
TLDR
This work employs symmetry arguments to construct a pair of nonlinear stochastic partial differential equations describing the coevolution of surface roughness with the composition field of DP, and discusses macroscopic manifestations of these equations on growth patterns and genealogical tracks of range expansion.

Critical fitness collapse in three-dimensional spatial population genetics
TLDR
This work considers population fitness collapse in 3D range expansions with both inflating and fixed-size frontiers, and finds that the onset of fitness collapse obeys different scaling laws, and that competition between species at the frontier leads to a deviation from directed percolation scaling. Expand
Population dynamics and genetics in inhomogeneous media
TLDR
In this work the expansion of a population, consisting of two subpopulations differing for neutral alleles, in inhomogeneous environments is investigated numerically using a discrete particle model with certain rules for birth, death by competition and displacement by diffusion. Expand

TLDR
A simple model of asexual biological evolution at expanding frontiers finds that beneficial mutations give rise to sectors with an opening angle that depends sensitively on the selective advantage of the mutants, and sets tight constraints on sustainable mutation rates for populations that undergo frequent range expansions.

Range Expansion with Mutation and Selection: Dynamical Phase Transition in a Two-Species Eden Model
TLDR
A two-species Eden growth model is introduced to analyze the interplay between uni-directional (irreversible) mutations and selection at the expanding front and finds that surface roughening has a marked effect on the critical properties of the absorbing state phase transition. Expand

This paper investigates in depth a model for the dynamics of a phenotypically heterogeneous population of viruses whose propagation is limited to two-dimensional geometries, and where host cells are able to develop defenses against infection. Expand

This system is a simplification of natural microbial community and it is argued that it constitutes proof of principle that the spatial models of population genetics can quantitatively capture organismal evolution. Expand
Genetic drift at expanding frontiers promotes gene segregation
TLDR
A comparison of bacterial and yeast colonies suggests that this large-scale genetic sectoring is a generic phenomenon that may provide a detectable footprint of past range expansions. Expand
Selective sweeps in growing microbial colonies.
TLDR
A simple deterministic reaction-diffusion model is formulated, which successfully predicts the spatial patterns created by two competing species during colony expansion and connects the microscopic parameters like growth rates and diffusion constants with macroscopic spatial patterns and predicts the relationship between fitness in liquid cultures and on Petri dishes, which is confirmed experimentally.

Quasispecies Made Simple
TLDR
It is argued that the lethal mutagenesis of a viral infection by mutation-inducing drugs is not a true error catastophe, but is an extinction catastrophe, because an error threshold is distinct from an extinction threshold, which is the complete loss of the population through lethal mutations.

The mutational meltdown in asexual populations.
TLDR
An overview of the theory of the mutational meltdown is given, showing how the process depends on the demographic properties of a population, the properties of mutations, and the relationship between fitness and number of mutations incurred. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated for a number of cases that the quasispecies concept is equivalent to the concept of mutation-selection balance developed in population genetics, and that there is no disagreement between the population genetics of haploid, asexually-replicating organisms and quasisPEcies theory.
