Data from: The cost of copy number in a selfish genetic element: the 2µM plasmid of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Ellie Harrison, Vassiliki Koufopanou, Austin Burt & R. Craig MacLean
Many autonomously replicating genetic elements exist as multiple copies within the cell. The copy number of these elements is often assumed to have important fitness consequences for both element and host, yet the forces shaping its evolution are not well understood. The 2µm is a multi-copy plasmid of Saccharomyces yeasts, encoding just four genes that are solely involved in plasmid replication. One simple model for the fitness relationship between yeasts and 2µm is that plasmid...
