Abstract

A phenomenon related to the founding effect of evolution known as genetic drift was proved by a simple combinatoric argument related to the Asymptotic Equipartition Property (AEP) theorem of Shannon. Beside, the whole evolutive process was reconstructed in biomolecular terms, by exploiting PCR as a mechanism to grow biomolecular populations, and a drift process toward homogeneity of molecular types has been experimentally achieved.
