    Gordon W Harkins
    South African National Bioinformatics Institute, University of the Western Cape, Cape Town, South Africa
    Virol J 6:104. 2009
    ..The credibility of this hypothesis, therefore, hinges on the testable claim that negative selection during mastrevirus evolution is so potent that it effectively purges 99.999% of all mutations that occur...
  2. pmc Benchmarking multi-rate codon models
    Wayne Delport
    Department of Pathology, University of California San Diego, San Diego, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 5:e11587. 2010
    ..We hint at how this can be achieved with a Genetic Algorithm approach in which rate classes are assigned on the basis of sequence information content...

    Sergei Kosakovsky Pond
    Department of Medicine, University of California San Diego, San Diego, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 5:e11230. 2010
    ..Our results demonstrate that there is little justification, either statistical or computational, for continued use of the -style estimators...
