New approach for predicting the speed of Muller's ratchet

David Waxman of the University of Sussex (UK) developed a new approach for predicting the rate of mutation accumulation from Muller's ratchet. Evolution@home results helped to test the predictions.

The work published in the Journal of theoretical Biology (link) gives rise to the hope that it may become possible to find a unified approach for predicting the speed of Muller's ratchet.
