Eigen's Error Threshold and Mutational Meltdown in a Quasispecies Model

Preprint English OPEN
Bagnoli, F.; Bezzi, M.;
(1998)

We introduce a toy model for interacting populations connected by mutations and limited by a shared resource. We study the presence of Eigen's error threshold and mutational meltdown. The phase diagram of the system shows that the extinction of the whole population due ... View more
