Abstract : We simulate the evolution of mutator strains using the aevol simulator. These strains show a striking resistance to mutational burden. Analysis of their genomes show that this resistance is obtained through two different mechanisms: contraction of the coding part of the genome (directly reducing the burden) and expansion of the non-coding part of the genome (undirectly favoring the reproduction of the best individuals).
