Lineage competition in the deterministic limit obtained by numerical integration of the corresponding ODE system.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
The mutation rates of the two lineages and are and , respectively. As before, the amplification factors of each phenotype in both lineages are: , and . The whole population is initially formed by genotypes , shared equally in both lineages. Figure (A) depicts the time evolution of each of the three phenotypes that form each lineage. Solid curves correspond to phenotypes of , whereas dashed lines are for phenotypes of . In figure (B) the three phenotypes are aggregated to yield the molar fraction of each lineage, (solid blue line) and (dashed green line). In (C) the time evolution of the average fitness of the population () is shown. The three phases that appear in the temporal evolution of the phenotypes and molar fractions of the lineages are separated by vertical black lines (see main text for more details).
