    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, USA
    Evolution 62:361-73. 2008
    ..This critical level varies across loci with the degree of correlation between host and endosymbiont fitness, and may help explain differential retention and loss of certain genes...
  2. pmc Quasi-species evolution in subdivided populations favours maximally deleterious mutations
    Brendan D O'Fallon
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, 257 South 1400 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 274:3159-64. 2007
    ..Our results indicate that RNA viruses that produce acute infections initiated by a small number of virions are expected to evolve fragile genetic architectures when compared with other RNA viruses...

    Brendan O'Fallon
    Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City 84112, USA
    Evolution 60:448-59. 2006
    ..These results suggest that the shifting balance process may operate under less restrictive conditions than those found with a simple spatial arrangement of demes...
