Relationship between Vg(i) and Vip(i). As described in the Method section of the text, Vip(i) was computed as the variance of the distribution of Sign(xi) over 200 runs for an identical genotype, while Vg(i) was computed as a variance of the distribution of over 200 individuals, where was the mean over 200 runs. σ = 0.1 (a), 0.05 (b), 0.01 (c), and 0.001 (d). The plot of (Vg(i) and Vip(i)) for all genes i at the 300th generation: Target genes as red ▢, and nontarget genes as blue +.
