Selection om variance-controlling genes: adaptality or stability

Pettersson, Mats; Nelson, Ronald; Carlborg, Örjan

Abstract

Simulations on a model system where a variance-controlling master locus scales the effects of a set of effector loci show that selection affects the variance-controlling locus more strongly than the effector loci, and that the direction of selection is dependent on the frequency of environmental changes.

Keywords
