Table 2 Probabilities of host mutation effects

From: Transposable element persistence via potential genome-level ecosystem engineering

Effect Lethal (survival likelihood = 0) Mildly deleteriousa Neutral (survival likelihood unchanged) Mildly beneficiala
Probability 40% 30% 15% 15%
  1. aThe degree of mildly deleterious/beneficial mutations were varied in our experiments and are therefore detailed in the “Varied Parameters” section, below
