Simulating Evolution To Understand Phenotypic Switching
News   Jan 19, 2021

Using computer simulations built on reasonable assumptions and conducted under careful control, computational bioscientists can mimic real biological conditions. Starting with the original founding population (ancient phase), they can evolve the population over several thousand generations to develop an intermediate phase, and then evolve that generation another several thousand generations to develop a derived phase.
