A stochastic model of Lenski’s long-term evolutiuon experiment Wakolbinger, Anton


Based on a Cannings-type model that is inspired by the design of the Lenki experiment, we show that very simple assumptions on the mutation-selection mechanism in the adaptive evolution lead to a parabolic form of the long-term relative fitness curve, for which more complicated explanations have previoulsly been given in the literature. This is joint work with Adrian Gonzales Casanova, Noemi Kurt and Linglong Yuan (, to appear in SPA).
