Page How to quantify effects of Muller's ratchet by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Jul 02, 2009 07:45 AM
Evolution@home has compiled the largest existing database of Muller's ratchet simulation results. This allows quantifications of the threat of extinction and other aspects of Muller's ratchet with unprecedented accuracy. Depending on what you know about your favorite organism, evolution@home results might help to work out what the ratchet does there.
Folder Muller's ratchet by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Jul 02, 2009 07:42 AM
If you are a scientist and want to quantify the effects of Muller's ratchet in your favourite model system, evolution@home might be able to help you.
Page Simulator005 by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Jul 02, 2009 07:39 AM
Simulator005 investigates the the accumulation of harmful and beneficial DNA-changes in non-recombining populations. These asexual systems can experience a phenomenon called "Muller's ratchet" and might help to understand the evolution of human mitochondrial DNA.

News Item New evolution@home computing project for Simulator005 by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Nov 15, 2008 04:37 PM
A new set of computing tasks is published today in order to further investigate how two different types of slightly harmful DNA changes interact with each other's evolutionary behaviour in a population.

News Item Evolution@home has quantified Muller's ratchet in the worm C. elegans by Laurence Loewe, last updated: Sep 30, 2008 06:43 PM
The small worm Caenorhabditis elegans is known for his high rate of selfing that may make it susceptible to the operation of Muller's ratchet. Now evolution@home has found that this worm would indeed be in trouble if there were no processes that would counter genomic decay in this worm or if selfing was very old.
