    Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
    J Evol Biol 21:104-10. 2008
    ..This demonstrates that the evolution of simple multicellular organisms which are composed of many functionally identical cells accelerates the evolution of more complex organisms with specialized cells...

    Martin Willensdorfer
    Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States of America
    PLoS Comput Biol 3:e203. 2007
    ..Our work allows us to estimate the phenotypic mutation rate based on data on the fraction of abnormal proteins. For S. cerevisiae, we predict that the value for the phenotypic mutation rate is between 2 x 10(-4) and 6 x 10(-4)...

    Martin Willensdorfer
    Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
    Evolution 63:306-23. 2009
    ..I discuss the biology of primitive multicellular organisms with respect to the model predictions. I find a good agreement and outline how this work can be used to guide further quantitative studies of multicellularity...
