    • Quantifying Evolutionary Dynamics 

      Geyrhofer, Lukas (2015-06-04)
      Adaptation is a central process in evolution: populations adapt to their environment by accumulating beneficial mutations over the course of generations. Microbial populations present an excellent experimental system that ...
    • The Coalescent in Boundary-Limited Range Expansions 

      Nullmeier, Jens (2014-10-14)
      Habitat ranges of most species shift over time, for instance due to climate change, human intervention, or adaptation. These demographic changes often have drastic effects on the genetic composition of the population, ...
    • The Level of Noise Controls the Efficiency of Natural Selection in Growing Biofilms 

      Stiewe, Fabian (2015-02-03)
      Many microbes live in biofilms, which are spatially structured populations. During adaptation to a new environment, beneficial mutations occur, and some of them spread through the population. Others go extinct due to ...
