Determinants of spontaneous mutation in the bacterium Escherichia coli as revealed by whole-genome sequencing

A complete understanding of evolutionary processes requires that factors determining spontaneous mutation rates and spectra be identified and characterized. Using mutation accumulation followed by whole-genome sequencing, we found that the mutation rates of three widely diverged commensal Escherichi...
