Evolutionary modelling of biological structures

Abstract:

Many naturally occurring biological molecules, such as nucleic acids or proteins, are evolutionary related, having evolved from a common ancestor via a process of sequence mutation. Mutations undergo a process of selection, with combinations of mutations that preserve or improve a molecule's fitness having a higher probability of being maintained. Mutations that modify structure are expected to particularly impact fitness, and often detectably influence observed patterns of mutations.
