This program is associated
with De Gelder et.al.
(2004), and Ponciano et.al. (2007), wherein a mathematical model is
introduced that aims to explain
the evolutionary process of the loss of the tetracycline resistance
operon from a plasmid contained in E. coli. This model is coupled with
a statistical framework based on the maximum likelihood to estimate its
parameters and to test the associated hypotheses.
INSTRUCTIONS
