On the significance of neutral spaces in adaptive evolution

Abstract:

Evolutionary dynamics arise from the interplay of mutation and selection. Fundamentally, these two processes operate at different levels: Mutations modify genetic information (the genotype), which is passed from parent to offspring. Selection is triggered by variation in reproductive success, which depends on the physical properties (the phenotype) of an organism and its environment. Thus the genotype-phenotype map determines if and how mutations can lead to selection. The aim of this diss...
