 Quote (WebHopper @ Feb. 11 2017,05:27) Wesley, if I understand you well the expected correct bases after mutation isE = C + (u * (L - C) / K) - (u * C * (K - 1) / K)where C = number of correct basesK = alphabet lengthL = number of base pairsu = mutation rateI guess with "expected" E you refer to the mean. So if C=L we haveE = L (K + u - K u)/KThis is a linear law with respect to L if the other parameters are held constant. However, this does not match a Monte Carlo simulation, which shows that E is exponential with respect to L. So there must be some error in your calculation or I don't understand you well.DiEb: Thanks for the link, I will look into this. Seems to be complicated however...

Edit: I'll look this over again. I derived it with Monte Carlo ground-truthing, so I'm not sure where we are diverging in expectation.
