My apologies. The evolutionarily effective mutation rate should read: .00069, not .0069.


> This rule was appropriated (incorrectly, in my opinion) by Zhivotovsky, Underhill and Feldman in 2004 and 2006 to justify a reduction in the germ line mutation rate from .002 per generation to .0069 (the so called "evolutionarily effective mutation rate".)
