Review on mutation rates

Kayla’s review on viral mutation rates is now published in the Journal of Virology. Our goal was to review the population genetics of mutation rates. We cover methods for mutation rate estimation, the forces that drive the evolution of mutation rates, and how the optimal mutation rate can be context-dependent. The article includes a link to a shiny app in our GitHub repo with updated information on mutation rates and evolutionary rates for your favorite viruses.
