Pathogen evolution and spread in the face of host genetic diversity

Abstract:

Despite the strong forces of genetic drift and directional selection, virtually all natural populations are genetically diverse. Declining within-host population diversity is nevertheless a growing problem, with homogenous populations (known as ‘monocultures’) predicted to suffer the most from pathogen (and/or parasite, herein used interchangeably where the same principles apply to both) infection given the increasing likelihood of uniform susceptibility. The literature has shown conclusively...
