    Center for Microbial Ecology, Michigan State University, East Lansing 48824, USA
    Evolution 55:889-96. 2001
    ..Antagonistic pleiotropy therefore is more likely to be responsible for the evolution of thermal specialization observed in maximum growth rate...
  3. pmc Timing of transmission and the evolution of virulence of an insect virus
    Vaughn S Cooper
    Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor 48109, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 269:1161-5. 2002
    ..These results illustrate fitness trade-offs associated with the evolution of virulence and indicate that milder viruses can obtain a numerical advantage when mild and harmful strains tend to infect separate hosts...

    Vaughn S Cooper
    Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI 48109, USA
    BMC Evol Biol 2:12. 2002
    ..I examined whether these populations in turn became inferior competitors in four alternative environments. These experiments are among the first to quantify and compare dimensions of the fundamental and realized niches...
  5. ncbi request reprint Punctuated evolution caused by selection of rare beneficial mutations
    S F Elena
    Center for Microbial Ecology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, 48824, USA
    Science 272:1802-4. 1996
    ..This experiment shows that the most elementary processes in population genetics can give rise to punctuated evolution dynamics...

    V S Cooper
    Center for Microbial Ecology, Michigan State University, East Lansing 48824, USA
    Nature 407:736-9. 2000
    ..Thus, antagonistic pleiotropy appears more important than mutation accumulation for the decay of unused catabolic functions in these populations...

    M S Riley
    Center for Microbial Ecology, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA
    Microbiology 147:995-1006. 2001
    ..This diversity may represent a set of equally probable adaptive solutions to the selective environment; it may also arise from the chance fixation of non-adaptive mutations that hitchhiked with a more limited set of beneficial mutations...
