From: Serial transfer can aid the evolution of autocatalytic sets

Figure 3

The varying autocatalytic (sub)sets as observed during one particular simulation run at the end of transfer steps number 1 (a), 3 (b), and 8 (c). The sizes of the circles indicate the relative frequencies of the different EMN molecules in the sample of size 75 taken after each dilution. Empty circles indicate genotypes that do not occur at least twice in the sample, as in the original experiment [10]. Arrows indicate the catalytic relationships, but the frequency changes depicted in Table 1 are the result of network dynamics, not merely single inter-genotype interactions.
