Assessment of Caenorhabditis elegans Competitive Fitness in the Presence of a Bacterial Parasite
Authors:  McKenna. J. Penley and Levi T. Morran, date: 08/20/2018, view: 33, Q&A: 0
Accurate measurements of an organism’s fitness are crucial for measuring evolutionary change. Methods of fitness measurement are most accurate when incorporating an individual’s survival and fecundity, as well as accounting for any ecological ...
