This paper is an extension of previous work on the sub ject, which considered the case of haploid genomes.

Interestingly, with an appropriate classification of population fractions, we obtain a system of equations that is formally identical to the haploid case.

As with the work for haploid genomes, we consider both random and immortal DNA strand chromosome segregation mechanisms.
Semiconservative quasispecies equations for polysomic genomes: The general case
However, in contrast to the haploid case, we have found that an analytical solution for the mean fitness is considerably more difficult to obtain for the polyploid case.

Semiconservative quasispecies equations for polysomic genomes: The general case
It is interesting to note that even when we do not assume that the genomes are necessarily haploid, it still follows that it is possible to derive an ordered strand-pair formulation of the dynamics that is identical to the haploid case .
Semiconservative quasispecies equations for polysomic genomes: The general case
At this point, the random and immortal strand segregation equations for arbitrary genomes become formally identical to the equations for haploid genomes.
