It is probably the oldest reproductive mode, though recombination may be as old. Examining its subject matter from a reductionistic, materialistic point of view has led to exceptional knowledge and given rise to dozens of sub-disciplines. Such a positive selection is due to the capacity of this type of strains to develop antibiotic resistance (100 fold higher than normal bacteria) This trait has been used as an accelerated evolution model to predict the ease of certain resistant variants to emerge as well as to infer which targets are more prone to be modified and the concomitant cost that such variability would imply to the organism. In Gerday C, Glansdorff N (ed), Physiology and Biochemistry of Extremophiles . >> carboxyl-terminal histidine kinase domain. Computer simulations of substitution of favorable mutants and of the long-term increase of deleterious mutants verified the essential correctness of the original Fisher-Muller argument and the reality of the Muller ratchet mechanism. However, rare HGT events occurring in large and structured populations are unlikely to reach relative population sizes that will allow their immediate identification; the exception being the unusually strong positive selection conferred by antibiotics.

Syst. We found that growth in minimal medium (i.e., prototrophy) was lost in all populations regardless of the experimental environment and that the pattern of trait loss in one environment was due to selection, whereas in the other environment the cause remains inconclusive. 1 Probabilistic adaptation in changing microbial 2 environments Yarden Katz1,2 and Michael Springer1 3 1Dept. /Root 114 0 R >> endobj I find that the strength of the adaptive rhythm, that is its relative temporal regularity, is equal to a constant that is the same for all microbial populations.

This project will further contribute to the development of enhanced testing protocols, however, we do not recommend to use chemostat systems to standardize the inocula in their composition and function. Other alterations are maintained and can even be passed on to succeeding generations of bacteria. Moreover, other HGT events that would be highly beneficial to new hosts can fail to ensue due to lack of physical proximity to the donor organism, lack of a suitable gene transfer mechanism, genetic compatibility, and stochasticity in tempo-spatial occurrence. 0000000674 00000 n The generalization of the model to an arbitrary number L of loci is briefly discussed.

In classic work, Fisher and Muller proposed that recombination provides an evolutionary advantage in large populations by alleviating this competition. This thesis confirms that the origin and exposure history of the inocula used in RBTs can lead to highly variable outcomes. The theory uses mainly quasi-static description, but has at least revealed a standard thermodynamic law: The chapter states that clonality is the most important propagation mode used by pathogenic agents and its genetic consequences must be understood precisely, though sexual recombination is also very important. Moreover, a direct relationship exists between the proportion of mutator strains and environmental stress. A phytochrome-like protein called Ppr was discovered in the purple photosynthetic bacterium Rhodospirillum centenum. Before tackling the complexities of adaptation in the ocean, we first quantified how the interplay between LT and HT modifications can affect both the timescale and outcome of marine microbial adaptation in an idealized fluctuating envi-ronment. – have been lost in a universe of analytical units. This looks similar to the Rayleigh-Jeans law, but there is a time dependency. The collection of microbial communities inhabiting plastic debris is commonly termed the plastisphere. For non-epistatic mutation, especially with beneficial mutations, this approximation fails over the long term but captures the early dynamics, thus complementing stationary stochastic predictions. complete account of microbial adaptation would ultimately integrate the three levels. by blue light. We solve the deterministic, infinite population dynamics exactly and show that, for a particular, natural mutation scheme, the speed of adaptation in sexuals is twice as large as in asexuals. << Evolution is often thought to be random and dependent on unpredictable events.

Unfortunately, by pursuing such detail, satisfactory answers to central questions – What is life? The evolution of influenza is a continuing process involving viral and host factors. Introduction The emergence and re-emergence of influenza viruses with pandemic potential for both human and veterinary public health is of great concern to humans globally. Their surrounding layers and the genetic information for these and other structures associated with a bacterium are capable of alteration. A transdisciplinary network is evolving: it goes beyond reductionistic biology, beyond vitalism or a rekindled (metaphysical) enchantment of nature. /Filter/FlateDecode >> Join ResearchGate to find the people and research you need to help your work. But the general nature of such adaptive steps is still unclear. Patterns of fitness trajectories in microbes (de novo mutations in asexuals) have been confronted to and fitted with various theoretical predictions, showing qualitative agreement with models of clonal interference (TSIMRING et al. The approximation also handles several diminishing return epistasis models (e.g. a philosophy that reconstructs biology as an understanding social science which describes the rule-governed sign-mediated interactions of cell individuals to mega-populations in their lifeworlds. /DA (/Helv 0 Tf 0 g ) The research presented in this thesis focuses on microbial adaptation to organic chemicals and the resultant effects on ready biodegradation tests. Persistency of organic chemicals is a key property in their environmental risk assessment. In this light, one might expect the steps taken by adaptation to be completely random, both biologically and temporally. The advantage of recombination is that it breaks down random linkage disequilibrium generated by genetic drift. << doi: 10.1128/9781555815813.ch25 It can thus be safely postulated that organisms with a clonal phase represent the major part of biodiversity, including eukaryotic parasites that cause some of the most severe diseases. microbial community upon exposure to any antimicrobial agent 20 Major mechanisms adaptation QACs include modification of cell membrane structure and composition, enhanced biofilm formation, acquisition of effluxgenes, overexpression pump systems, and biodegradation. Selective or neutral processes can result in the deterioration of a trait, and often one of these is inferred based on indirect evidence. 0000003849 00000 n 0000001646 00000 n It is argued that these constitute an intrinsic advantage of recombination capable of accounting for its persistence in the face of selection for tighter linkage between interacting polymorphisms, and possibly capable of accounting for its origin.

The convergence of factors affecting contemporary human and The human microbiota also displays a variety of community compositions and a range of overlapping and redundant metabolic characteristics that can alter host physiology. Reconstitution experiments demonstrate that Ppr covalently attaches the blue light–absorbing Microbial communities display extreme diversity, facilitated by the secretion of chemicals that can create new niches. Microbial Adaptation to High Pressure, p 333-348. The utility of these conditions for testing hypotheses using data from the mutualistic interaction between plants and mycorrhizal fungi is then demonstrated. Most HGT events are not expected to alter the likelihood of host survival to such an extreme extent, and will confer only minor changes in host fitness. We investigated the evolutionary relationships among betanodaviruses working on, The molecular evolution of all available avian growth hormone (GH) gene sequences was investigated using both maximum-likelihood and parsimony methods, and the patterns compared to those found in mammals. 0000003543 00000 n The simulations also show that the imbalance between the numbers of accumulated mutations at the two loci is strongly suppressed even by a small amount of recombination. >> stream Intragenic recombination in RNA1 and RNA2 genes was investigated by applying several methods and was not detected. Microbes represent the major part of genetic diversity on earth, most of which is still represented by uncultivated organisms. This review aims to bring together our current knowledge regarding microbial adaptation and its implication for the testing of biodegradation of chemicals. Here we describe an experimental evolution system where two different environments were used for addressing the population genetic cause of trait loss throughout evolutionary time. In most cases, the observation of evolutionary successful HGT events relies on the outcome of initially rare events that lead to novel functions in the new host, and that exhibit a positive effect on host fitness. In all cases, predictions are typically obtained in high or low mutation rate limits and for long-term stationary regimes, thus loosing information on transient behaviors and the effect of initial conditions. Both are described as very abstract things. Experimental attempts to detect HGT events in bacterial populations have typically focused on the transformed cells or their immediate offspring. The potential of producing genetic variability, either by mutation or by recombination, is the driving force of evolution in a living organism. Population genetic modeling of the growth dynamics of bacteria with differing HGT rates and resulting fitness changes is therefore necessary to guide sampling design and predict realistic time frames for detection of HGT, as it occurs in laboratory or natural settings. 2015.46:503-522. Here we sequence the genomes of seven species of ants, three that have convergently evolved obligate plant-Ant mutualism and four closely related species of non-mutualists. However, a variable proportion of bacteria with a higher mutation rate than that of the modal is always present in any population. 2013). This chapter discusses the clonal evolution, the evolutionary advantages and disadvantages brought about by clonality, evolution of resistance or virulence and the economic and medical issues. Ecol.

Beyond this phase transition, in Fisher's geometrical model, the full trajectory of fitness and trait distributions takes simple form, robust to details of the mutant phenotype distribution. These 'clonal interference' dynamics, in the presence of stochastic fluctuations, are difficult to analyze and often yield complex or non-explicit formulae, but several models have provided important insight into this process. The evolutionary biologist "studies the steps by which the miraculous adaptations so characteristic of every aspect of the organic world have evolved". Others follow the dynamics of quantitative traits determining fitness (Fisher's geometrical model), imposing a complex but fixed form of mutation effects and epistasis, and often ignoring drift. The microbiota of mammals is a product of coevolution. The mechanism of adaptation to Hg2+ in four aquatic habitats was studied by correlating microbially mediated Hg2+ volatilization with the adaptive state of the exposed communities. The ratio of the sexual to asexual adaptation speed is a function of population size that increases in the clonal interference regime and approaches 2 for extremely large populations. Sexual reproduction is more a recombinational repair tool than a propagation mode. The authors also try to estimate the importance of clonality and sexuality in the biosphere and in particular in infectious agents and try to tackle evolutionary biology concepts linked to clonality. /L 369580 Analytical arguments are explored for why and when the deterministic approximation applies. In this study it is demonstrated that the dynamics within mutualism can contribute to the maintenance of diversity within its participants, using a general model of frequency dependence between two mutualistically interacting guilds. 0000003270 00000 n Mechanisms for microbial adaptation, resistance and QAC degradation are emerging. Due to the large population sizes of bacteria and the time scales involved, the process and outcome of HGT are often not amenable to experimental investigation. In addition to environmental fluctuations, the genome of a given bacterial transformant is not constant. It is well described that microbial adaptation stimulates biodegradation of organic chemicals. Conditions are identified for the maintenance of diversity and the maximization of benefit from mutualism within the context of the model. Based on recent progress in quantifying the speed of adaptation in asexual populations undergoing clonal interference, we present a detailed analysis of the Fisher-Muller mechanism for a model genome consisting of two loci with an infinite number of beneficial alleles each and multiplicative (nonepistatic) fitness effects. ... To our knowledge, no model exists that was parameterized from independent data, and then has proved to predict observed fitness trajectories; in either sexual or asexual organisms, from de novo mutations or preexisting standing variance. Some focus directly on fitness, typically modelling drift but ignoring or simplifying both epistasis and the distribution of mutation effects (travelling wave models). 0000003749 00000 n Guided by the infinite population result and by previous work on asexual adaptation, we postulate an expression for the speed of adaptation in finite sexual populations that agrees with numerical simulations over a wide range of population sizes and recombination rates. population genetic cause of trait loss are not well understood. RNA1 gene encodes the RNA polymerase, named also protein A, while RNA2 encodes the coat protein precursor, the CPp protein. 0 Microbial adaptation – Pandemic potential – Prevention – Vaccine – Variation – Zoonosis. >> This theory is applicable to a lot of individual kinds, which tend to organise themselves to groups. 34.05; Georgia Institute of Technology; Download full-text PDF … The origin and exposure history of the inocula used for biodegradability testing can lead to highly variable outcomes. %%EOF RBTs are, however, not designed for this purpose and suffer from several problems that lead to a high variability of the results and, hence, to difficulties in their interpretation. Here, we connect fitness-based and trait-based models into a single framework, and seek explicit solutions even away from stationarity. What is the so-called twofold cost of sex? Conversely reassortment of RNA1 and RNA2 genes was demonstrated in some isolates. The authors try to see when and how clonal reproduction and sexual recombination appeared in the history of life and then compare how prokaryotes and eukaryotes may differ to this respect and also compare unicellular and pluricellular organisms. /E 27646 These studies do not report on the role of changes in the microbial community structure during adaptation. Asexual reproduction is probably the most widespread and also oldest means of biological propagation. ASM Press, Washington, DC. %PDF-1.5 Finally RNA1 and RNA2 genes substitution rates do not follow a clock-like behavior thus impeding estimation of a possible origin time for Betanodavirus genus. over the long-term and that120 microbial community adaptation plays critical roles in regulating such . 2014, Zettler et al. Horizontal gene transfer (HGT) enables bacteria to access, share, and recombine genetic variation, resulting in genetic diversity that cannot be obtained through mutational processes alone. The property all of them have to share is the possibility of information processing, although the minimum can be one single method of comparison. These findings provide insight into microbial adaptation in As contaminated soil, as toxicity was largely reduced from As(III) to As(V). adaptation, thereby impacting long-term evolution (12). As a consequence, numbers of accumulated adaptations are predicted to have a universal variance/mean ratio. Nevertheless, the differing patterns of avian and mammalian GH signal peptide molecular evolution are consistent with the apparently differing roles of GH in controlling growth in these taxonomic groups and support the hypothesis that signal peptide sequence variation may in fact be the basis for increased functional complexity. This implies that sequence variation in the avian GH signal peptide may be adaptive, although more conservative parsimony methods failed to confirm this. Finally we compared the implication of long term and short term deliberate exposure on the biodegradation tests outcome and on the inoculum diversity and composition.

Others follow the dynamics of quantitative traits determining fitness (Fisher's geometrical model), imposing a complex but fixed form of mutation effects and epistasis, and often ignoring drift. The microbiota of mammals is a product of coevolution. The mechanism of adaptation to Hg2+ in four aquatic habitats was studied by correlating microbially mediated Hg2+ volatilization with the adaptive state of the exposed communities. The ratio of the sexual to asexual adaptation speed is a function of population size that increases in the clonal interference regime and approaches 2 for extremely large populations. Sexual reproduction is more a recombinational repair tool than a propagation mode.

In this study it is demonstrated that the dynamics within mutualism can contribute to the maintenance of diversity within its participants, using a general model of frequency dependence between two mutualistically interacting guilds. 0000003270 00000 n Mechanisms for microbial adaptation, resistance and QAC degradation are emerging. Due to the large population sizes of bacteria and the time scales involved, the process and outcome of HGT are often not amenable to experimental investigation. In addition to environmental fluctuations, the genome of a given bacterial transformant is not constant. It is well described that microbial adaptation stimulates biodegradation of organic chemicals. Conditions are identified for the maintenance of diversity and the maximization of benefit from mutualism within the context of the model.

A possible realization of this scenario is the reassortment of genetic material in RNA viruses with L genomic segments. Community diversity, heterotrophic activity, and Hg2+ resistance measurements indicated that adaptation of all four communities was stimulated by preexposure to Hg2+. The three named problems and probably others are vanished in the models of this theory. This would lead to the reductionistic fallacy, wherein the quantification of signals is mistaken for the message content or for the interaction process it conveys.

Microbial adaptation is the term used to describe the ability of microbes to endure the selective pressures of their environment. We simply want to stress that, under the two models, beneficial mutations enter into competition and some beneficial mutations are therefore "wasted" during the process of adaptation ( Gerrish and Lenski, 1998; ... We will not enter into the details of these models here and we advise readers to refer to recent reviews for more details. General results arise at equilibrium, where fitness distributions display a 'phase transition' with mutation rate. What evolutionary advantages are brought by clonality?

Do they behave much different to people? Lower dashed. Low temperature and high pressure deep-sea environments occupy the largest fraction of the biosphere. Such a negative feedback results from an asymmetry in the delivery of benefit between participants of the mutualism that generates a negative interguild frequency dependence. This result is argued to hold for any nonzero value of the rate of recombination. However, it is unclear why cells often secrete even essential metabolites after evolution. chromophorep-hydroxycinnamic acid and that it has a photocycle that is spectrally similar to, but kinetically slower than, that of PYP. Nevertheless, the molecular adaptations that enable life to exist under these conditions remain poorly understood. Those authors whose models had finite-population effects found an advantage of recombination, and those whose models had infinite populations found none. /PageMode /UseNone The book "Physics of Love" discusses groups of individuals. Numerical models have suggested that the dynamics within mutualisms are not important for the maintenance of diversity. Comparing theory with simulations and HIV data (see Methods). However, this compensatory thermal adaptation is only half or less of that found in previous studies for noncultivated ecosystems. Betanodavirus genome consists of two single-stranded positive-sense RNA molecules (RNA1 and RNA2). the microbial flora of the upper respiratory tract, which is assumed to reflect that of the lower respiratory tract. Microbial adaptation was performed to enhance the biological degradation of phenol. <> It is probably the oldest reproductive mode, though recombination may be as old. Examining its subject matter from a reductionistic, materialistic point of view has led to exceptional knowledge and given rise to dozens of sub-disciplines. Such a positive selection is due to the capacity of this type of strains to develop antibiotic resistance (100 fold higher than normal bacteria) This trait has been used as an accelerated evolution model to predict the ease of certain resistant variants to emerge as well as to infer which targets are more prone to be modified and the concomitant cost that such variability would imply to the organism. In Gerday C, Glansdorff N (ed), Physiology and Biochemistry of Extremophiles . >> carboxyl-terminal histidine kinase domain. Computer simulations of substitution of favorable mutants and of the long-term increase of deleterious mutants verified the essential correctness of the original Fisher-Muller argument and the reality of the Muller ratchet mechanism. However, rare HGT events occurring in large and structured populations are unlikely to reach relative population sizes that will allow their immediate identification; the exception being the unusually strong positive selection conferred by antibiotics. The molecular evolution of proteins A and CPp was also investigated. If true, incorporating metagenomics-based microbial functional . 3.2.1. The phylogenetic relationships among the major betanodavirus clades SJNNV-IV, TPNNV-III, BFNNV-II and RGNNV-I were resolved differently in the trees obtained, respectively, from RNA1 and RNA2 multiple alignments. 2015, Dussud et al.

Readily biodegradability is mostly determined using screening tests such as the ready biodegradability tests (RBTs) developed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Syst. We found that growth in minimal medium (i.e., prototrophy) was lost in all populations regardless of the experimental environment and that the pattern of trait loss in one environment was due to selection, whereas in the other environment the cause remains inconclusive. 1 Probabilistic adaptation in changing microbial 2 environments Yarden Katz1,2 and Michael Springer1 3 1Dept. /Root 114 0 R >> endobj I find that the strength of the adaptive rhythm, that is its relative temporal regularity, is equal to a constant that is the same for all microbial populations. However, it is much less clear how mutualisms impact the genome, as both increased and reduced rates of change have been, The average amino acid composition of proteins is determined by the genetic code and by random base changes in evolution. The controversy over the evolutionary advantage of recombination initially discovered by Fisher and by Muller is reviewed. Marine microplastic biofilms are shaped primarily by biogeographical and environmental factors, such as salinity and nutrient conce… In chronic infectious diseases, due to prolonged antibiotic regimens, nearly 50% of the population may be represented by mutating bacteria. x�c```g``9�����������b����. studies regarding gradual microbial adaptation to salt showed that, depending on the salt concentration, the long-term effect of salt can be more pronounced than the short-term effect (Moussa et al. This project will further contribute to the development of enhanced testing protocols, however, we do not recommend to use chemostat systems to standardize the inocula in their composition and function. Other alterations are maintained and can even be passed on to succeeding generations of bacteria. Moreover, other HGT events that would be highly beneficial to new hosts can fail to ensue due to lack of physical proximity to the donor organism, lack of a suitable gene transfer mechanism, genetic compatibility, and stochasticity in tempo-spatial occurrence. 0000000674 00000 n The generalization of the model to an arbitrary number L of loci is briefly discussed. The two terms at the right side display the two main parts of the following content. WhenAlcaligenes xylosoxidans Y234 was adapted with benzene, it could degrade phenol of 1,000 ppm completely in 60 hours while phenoladapted cell could not. >> First, we tested the impact of prior long-term exposure on the biodegradation capacity of an activated sludge inoculum for 4-chloroaniline, N-methylpiperazine and metformin. /Prev 367265 Abstract. In classic work, Fisher and Muller proposed that recombination provides an evolutionary advantage in large populations by alleviating this competition. This thesis confirms that the origin and exposure history of the inocula used in RBTs can lead to highly variable outcomes. The theory uses mainly quasi-static description, but has at least revealed a standard thermodynamic law: The chapter states that clonality is the most important propagation mode used by pathogenic agents and its genetic consequences must be understood precisely, though sexual recombination is also very important. Moreover, a direct relationship exists between the proportion of mutator strains and environmental stress. A phytochrome-like protein called Ppr was discovered in the purple photosynthetic bacterium Rhodospirillum centenum. Before tackling the complexities of adaptation in the ocean, we first quantified how the interplay between LT and HT modifications can affect both the timescale and outcome of marine microbial adaptation in an idealized fluctuating envi-ronment. – have been lost in a universe of analytical units. This looks similar to the Rayleigh-Jeans law, but there is a time dependency. The collection of microbial communities inhabiting plastic debris is commonly termed the plastisphere. For non-epistatic mutation, especially with beneficial mutations, this approximation fails over the long term but captures the early dynamics, thus complementing stationary stochastic predictions. complete account of microbial adaptation would ultimately integrate the three levels. by blue light. We solve the deterministic, infinite population dynamics exactly and show that, for a particular, natural mutation scheme, the speed of adaptation in sexuals is twice as large as in asexuals. << Evolution is often thought to be random and dependent on unpredictable events. The alternative topologies were corroborated by strong bootstrap values. >> microbial adaptation (i.e., genetic changes in the genome in response to the physical and chemical conditions) to the atmospheric environment. ................................................................. ............................................................................................ better contending mutations) on its way to ®xation.

Unfortunately, by pursuing such detail, satisfactory answers to central questions – What is life? The evolution of influenza is a continuing process involving viral and host factors. Introduction The emergence and re-emergence of influenza viruses with pandemic potential for both human and veterinary public health is of great concern to humans globally. Their surrounding layers and the genetic information for these and other structures associated with a bacterium are capable of alteration. A transdisciplinary network is evolving: it goes beyond reductionistic biology, beyond vitalism or a rekindled (metaphysical) enchantment of nature. /Filter/FlateDecode >> Join ResearchGate to find the people and research you need to help your work. But the general nature of such adaptive steps is still unclear. Patterns of fitness trajectories in microbes (de novo mutations in asexuals) have been confronted to and fitted with various theoretical predictions, showing qualitative agreement with models of clonal interference (TSIMRING et al. The approximation also handles several diminishing return epistasis models (e.g. a philosophy that reconstructs biology as an understanding social science which describes the rule-governed sign-mediated interactions of cell individuals to mega-populations in their lifeworlds. /DA (/Helv 0 Tf 0 g ) The research presented in this thesis focuses on microbial adaptation to organic chemicals and the resultant effects on ready biodegradation tests. Persistency of organic chemicals is a key property in their environmental risk assessment. In this light, one might expect the steps taken by adaptation to be completely random, both biologically and temporally. The advantage of recombination is that it breaks down random linkage disequilibrium generated by genetic drift. << doi: 10.1128/9781555815813.ch25 It can thus be safely postulated that organisms with a clonal phase represent the major part of biodiversity, including eukaryotic parasites that cause some of the most severe diseases. microbial community upon exposure to any antimicrobial agent 20 Major mechanisms adaptation QACs include modification of cell membrane structure and composition, enhanced biofilm formation, acquisition of effluxgenes, overexpression pump systems, and biodegradation. Selective or neutral processes can result in the deterioration of a trait, and often one of these is inferred based on indirect evidence. 0000003849 00000 n 0000001646 00000 n It is argued that these constitute an intrinsic advantage of recombination capable of accounting for its persistence in the face of selection for tighter linkage between interacting polymorphisms, and possibly capable of accounting for its origin.

Reconstitution experiments demonstrate that Ppr covalently attaches the blue light–absorbing Microbial communities display extreme diversity, facilitated by the secretion of chemicals that can create new niches. Microbial Adaptation to High Pressure, p 333-348. The utility of these conditions for testing hypotheses using data from the mutualistic interaction between plants and mycorrhizal fungi is then demonstrated. Most HGT events are not expected to alter the likelihood of host survival to such an extreme extent, and will confer only minor changes in host fitness. We investigated the evolutionary relationships among betanodaviruses working on, The molecular evolution of all available avian growth hormone (GH) gene sequences was investigated using both maximum-likelihood and parsimony methods, and the patterns compared to those found in mammals. 0000003543 00000 n The simulations also show that the imbalance between the numbers of accumulated mutations at the two loci is strongly suppressed even by a small amount of recombination. >> stream Intragenic recombination in RNA1 and RNA2 genes was investigated by applying several methods and was not detected. Microbes represent the major part of genetic diversity on earth, most of which is still represented by uncultivated organisms. This review aims to bring together our current knowledge regarding microbial adaptation and its implication for the testing of biodegradation of chemicals. Here we describe an experimental evolution system where two different environments were used for addressing the population genetic cause of trait loss throughout evolutionary time. In most cases, the observation of evolutionary successful HGT events relies on the outcome of initially rare events that lead to novel functions in the new host, and that exhibit a positive effect on host fitness. In all cases, predictions are typically obtained in high or low mutation rate limits and for long-term stationary regimes, thus loosing information on transient behaviors and the effect of initial conditions. Both are described as very abstract things. Experimental attempts to detect HGT events in bacterial populations have typically focused on the transformed cells or their immediate offspring. The potential of producing genetic variability, either by mutation or by recombination, is the driving force of evolution in a living organism. Population genetic modeling of the growth dynamics of bacteria with differing HGT rates and resulting fitness changes is therefore necessary to guide sampling design and predict realistic time frames for detection of HGT, as it occurs in laboratory or natural settings. 2015.46:503-522. Here we sequence the genomes of seven species of ants, three that have convergently evolved obligate plant-Ant mutualism and four closely related species of non-mutualists. However, a variable proportion of bacteria with a higher mutation rate than that of the modal is always present in any population. 2013).
