Genomic mutation rate

Range 0.28-0.42 mutations per diploid genome per generation
Organism Thale cress Arabidopsis thaliana
Reference Schultz ST, Lynch M, Willis JH. Spontaneous deleterious mutation in Arabidopsis thaliana. 1999. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 96(20):11393-11398.PubMed ID10500187
Method estimate
Comments For value of 0.2±0.1 per generation See comments section of BNID 105036:"If we assume that only nonsynonymous mutations and indels affecting coding regions are likely to affect fitness, the diploid genomic rate of mutations affecting fitness would be 0.2±0.1 per generation, which is not significantly different from previous estimates based on the evaluation of fitness components in MA lines of A. thaliana"
