## Viral Diversity Threshold for Adaptive Immunity in Prokaryotes

A recent paper concerning non-Darwinian (Lamarckian) evolution and mathematical modeling. From the abstract Tracking this cost-benefit analysis across parameter space reveals viral mutation rate thresholds beyond which CRISPR-Cas cannot provide sufficient immunity and is purged from host populations. These results … Continue reading

## Population Genomics of Early Events in the Ecological Differentiation of Bacteria

Population Genomics of Early Events in the Ecological Differentiation of Bacteria Genetic exchange is common among bacteria, but its effect on population diversity during ecological differentiation remains controversial. A fundamental question is whether advantageous mutations lead to selection of clonal … Continue reading

## What we know about the horizontal gene transfer

Here is a very informative site, which collects information on the horizontal (or lateral) gene transfer: http://www.panspermia.org/virus.htm Here are a couple of links to posts by Jerry A. Coyne: http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2011/04/13/how-important-is-lateral-gene-transfer/ http://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2010/05/01/aphids-nab-pigment-genes-from-fungus/
