Table 4 Probability of the complex XOR phenotype emergence in different experimental scenarios.

From: Horizontal gene transfer dynamics and distribution of fitness effects during microbial in silico evolution

  w> 0.75 w>0.90
Unevolved → XOR 0.56 0.47
Unevolved → {A, B} → XOR 0.85 0.67
Unevolved → {A, B} → XOR + HGT 0.94 0.68
  1. Organisms with fitness w > 0.75 considered to be evolved, further refinement of the phenotype is required to surpass w > 0.90 threshold.
