Figure 5

Variation generation through gene conversion. Simulation results with mr = 0.0005 (upper panel) and mr = 0.001 (lower panel). In both panels the lower curves represent the variation generation response of genes encoding nuclear proteins (i.e. most robust family). Under this model the DGF1 becomes relatively more robust to mutations (lower variation generation) for relatively higher mutation rates (lower panel, curve above nuclear genes curve).
