Evolution picks up hitchhikers: Pervasive genetic hitchhiking and clonal interference in evolving yeast populations

In a twist on “survival of the fittest,” researchers have discovered that evolution is driven not by a single beneficial mutation but rather by a group of mutations, including ones called “genetic hitchhikers” that are simply along for the ride. These … Continue reading
