Competition between populations with different rates of recombination. Bruce R. Levin Omar E. Cornejo 10.1371/journal.pgen.1000601.g008 https://plos.figshare.com/articles/_Competition_between_populations_with_different_rates_of_recombination_/558003 <p>In (A), (B) and (C) we plot the changes in the ratio of the higher rate recombining population #1, relative to the lower rate recombining population, #2, 1∶2. Runs initiated with 10 randomly chosen clones with identical starting populations for the 1 and 2 populations. In all runs the runs depicted the total population size <i>N<sub>T</sub> = 2×10<sup>8</sup></i>, μ = 10<sup>−8</sup>, <i>χ<sub>1</sub> = 5×10<sup>15</sup></i>, <i>χ</i><sub>2</sub> = 0, c = 0.50, e = 1.0. (A) Initially equal densities of 1 and 2 and no fitness cost associated with recombination. (B) Initial equal frequencies of #1 and #2M and a 1% fitness cost for the recombining population 1. (C) The recombining population is initially rare and there is no fitness cost associated with recombination. (D) Ratio of non-recombining to recombining 2∶1, the non-recombining population is initially rare and there is a 2% fitness cost for the recombining population.</p> 2013-02-21 04:59:24 populations rates
