Figure 2

Relationship between V g ( i ) and V ip ( i ). As described in the Method section of the text, V ip (i) was computed as the variance of the distribution of Sign(x i ) over 200 runs for an identical genotype, while V g (i) was computed as a variance of the distribution of ( S i g n ( x i ) ) ¯ over 200 individuals, where S i g n ( x i ) ¯ was the mean over 200 runs. σ = 0.1 (a), 0.05 (b), 0.01 (c), and 0.001 (d). The plot of (V g (i) and V ip (i)) for all genes i at the 300th generation: Target genes as red , and nontarget genes as blue +.
