1. Climbing Mount Probable: Mutation as a Cause of Nonrandomness in Evolution
Published: 10/1/2009
Author: Arlin B Stoltzfus
Abstract: Genomes differ systematically in Guanine-plus-Cytosine (GC) content. GC-rich genomes encode proteins enriched in amino acids with GC-rich codons, such as Glycine (with codons GGT, GGC, GGA, GGG), while AT-rich genomes are enriched in amino acids wit ...

2. Mutation-Biased Adaptation in a Protein NK Model
Published: 10/1/2006
Author: Arlin B Stoltzfus
Abstract: Evolutionary trends responsible for systematic differences in genome and proteome composition have been attributed to GC:AT mutation bias in the context of neutral evolution or to selection acting on genome composition. A possibility that has been ig ...

3. Mutationism and the dual causation of evolutionary change
Published: 5/1/2006
Author: Arlin B Stoltzfus
Abstract: The rediscovery of Mendel's laws a century ago launched the science that William Bateson called "genetics," and led to a new view of evolution combining selection, particulate inheritance, and the newly characterized phenomenon of "mutation." This "m ...

4. Nexplorer: Phylogeny-based exploration of sequence family data
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: J. A. Aust, W. Qiu, M. Chen, Arlin B Stoltzfus

5. Molecular Evoultion: Introns Fall into Place.
Published: 7/10/2005
Author: Arlin B Stoltzfus

6. Intron and Exons
Published: 10/17/2001
Author: Arlin B Stoltzfus
Abstract: An intron (or intervening sequence) is a segment of RNA excised from a gene transcript, with concomitant ligation of flanking segments called exons. Introns of some type are found in every kingdom of cellular life, and also in viruses, bacteriophage ...

7. Bias in the Introduction of Variation as an Orienting Factor in Evolution
Published: 1/1/2001
Authors: L Y Yampolsky, Arlin B Stoltzfus
Abstract: According to New Synthesis doctrine, the direction of evolution is determined by selection and not by internal causes that act by way of propensities of variation. This doctrine rests on the theoretical claim that because mutation rates are small in ...

8. On the Possibility of Constructive Neutral Evolution
Published: 12/1/1999
Author: Arlin B Stoltzfus

9. Amino Acid Exchangeability from Experimental Data
Published: Date unknown
Authors: L Y Yampolsky, Arlin B Stoltzfus
Abstract: Amino acid sequence differences between proteins are often interpreted by reference to a pairwise measure of amino acid similarity, based either on observed evolutionary transition probabilities, or on some physicochemical model of effects. However, ...
