Showing Potential for Multiple Biomedical and Environmental Applications
Mutant frequency trajectories exhibit complex dynamics due to linkage affects. Top left panel shows frequency trajectories of all mutant alleles, the lower three panels on the left show the trajectories of beneficial/neutral/deleterious mutants in blue/orange/red. The right panel shows their estimated fitness values using the proposed inference method. Vertical lines indicate the true fitness values.
