Comments "To evaluate the evolutionary consequences of somatic mutations, it is first instructive to put things on an equal footing by standardizing the germline mutation rates of multicellular lineages to a per cell division basis. Such a comparison shows that although selection has been incapable of maintaining per generation germline mutation rates for base substitutions at the levels observed in microbes, the per cell division rates have been kept low, and have perhaps even been suppressed in human (Table 1)."
