Additional file 7: Figure S5. of Rapid Increase in frequency of gene copy-number variants during experimental evolution in Caenorhabditis elegans

Increase in the frequencies of parallel deletion events in two control populations, C2 and C4, containing an overlapping region on Chromosome I. The average copy-number per haploid genome was calculated from qPCR results and is indicated on the vertical axis. The number of recovery generations is indicated on the horizontal axis. The results show a strong decline in average copy-number of these two independent deletions that were initially detected by oaCGH. The deletions have reached fixation when the average copy-number has reached 0. (PDF 70 kb)
