One of the key issues in the evolution of life is the evolution of inheritance systems. In population genetics, the earliest attempt at addressing the latter problem revolved around Fisher's theory on the evolution of dominance. Fisher's hypothesis was that inheritance systems could be modified during the evolutionary process in such a way that wild-type phenotypes could become dominant with respect to mutant phenotypes. This would result in the buffering of a population against the deleterious… CONTINUE READING
