Sorry, no etymologies found.
What the study (and many like it) shows is that this kind of mutational search is as good as "hill climbing" algorithms.
Even today, the Greek language is characterized by inexhaustible capabilities for "mutational" or locally accepted idiomatic transformations.
Domestic breeding relies upon exactly the same pool of mutational variation as natural selection.
Even small SNP clusters are non-randomly distributed: is this evidence of mutational non-independence? is a paper authored by William Amos.
A reasonable question would be: provide evidence that known sorts of mutational events produced the adaptive immune system.
If a common ancestor first sustained the mutational mistakes and subsequently gave rise to those two modern species, that would very readily account for why both species have them now.
Information on previous diagnostic evaluations and particularly specific mutational analysis is important.
A large number of mutational mechanisms and selective mechanisms have been observed in the lab and in the wild.
No, they just talk about natural mutational and selective processes.
We know what the mutational mechanisms are, we know what the selective mechanisms are.
