Internal Genetic Variation as a Evolved Strategy

Very interesting genetic variation within an individual - has implications for careful screening when doing animal cloning for livestock production. Also implies that healthier strains may have more internal genetic variation as a strategy to avoid bacteria and viruses.

May also explain why cancer is a byproduct of a strategy to void bacteria and viruses which tend to kill you when you're young versus cancer that gets you when you're old.
