Data from: The effect of population bottlenecks on mutation rate evolution in asexual populations

Yevgeniy Raynes, Angela L. Halstead & Paul D. Sniegowski
In the absence of recombination, a mutator allele can spread through a population by hitchhiking with beneficial mutations that appear in its genetic background. Theoretical studies over the past decade have shown that the survival and fixation probability of beneficial mutations can be severely reduced by population size bottlenecks. Here, we use computational modelling and evolution experiments with the yeast S. cerevisiae to examine whether population bottlenecks can affect mutator dynamics in adapting asexual populations....
