Table 3 Values of published MIRU mutation rates

From: The mutation rate of mycobacterial repetitive unit loci in strains of M. tuberculosisfrom cynomolgus macaque infection

Author Mean MIRU mutation rate Lower bound Upper bound
Estimated rate, macaque model 2.70 × 10-3 3.30 × 10-4 9.80 × 10-3
Aandahl et al. 2012 3.55 × 10-3 8.51 × 10-4 1.15 × 10-2
Reyes and Tanaka 2010 None 7.00 × 10-4 1.50 × 10-2
Wirth et al. 2008 1.23 × 10-4 1.96 × 10-5 7.93 × 10-4
Grant et al. 2008* 1.05 × 10-5 None None
  1. *Grant, et al. 2008 rate was converted from a per generation to a per year mutation rate.
