When a favorable allele increases in frequency, it alters the coalescent structure (the pattern of times back to a common ancestor) at linked sites relative to that under drift. This creates patterns ... More


Coevolution, co-transmission, and conflict

Geoffrey E. Hill

in Mitonuclear Ecology

Published in print:
2019
Published Online:

Subject:
Biology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

Mitochondrial genes and nuclear genes are replicated and transmitted across generations as physically separated units. The extent to which these autonomous genomes are co-transmitted depends on the ... More


Interaction of Selection, Mutation, and Drift

Bruce Walsh and Michael Lynch

in Evolution and Selection of Quantitative Traits

Published in print:
2018
Published Online:
September 2018
ISBN:
9780198830870

Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics, Biochemistry / Molecular Biology

This chapter examines the joint impact of selection, mutation, and drift on the allele frequencies at a locus. One key finding is that if the strength of selection is sufficiently weak relative to ... More


The Genetic Effective Size of a Population

Bruce Walsh and Michael Lynch

in Evolution and Selection of Quantitative Traits

Published in print:
2018
Published Online:
September 2018

Subject:
Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics, Biochemistry / Molecular Biology

The effects of genetic drift usually assume an idealized population of constant size. This chapter shows how the population size for such an idealized population can be replaced with an effective ... More
