  • Genetic
  • However, the most useful traits for genetic analysis are present in different forms in different individuals. (princeton.edu)
  • Lander and Botstein [ 2 ] pioneered the systematic integration of molecular genetics and statistical methodologies to dissect quantitative traits to an individual genetic locus, well known as quantitative trait loci (QTLs). (hindawi.com)
  • But with the eigenvalues of the matrix, the dimensions can be reduced greatly and it becomes feasible for genetic mapping of a large number of traits [ 20 , 21 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Genetic epidemiology is a research discipline that combines genetics, molecular biology, epidemiology, statistics and bioinformatics to investigate the role of genes, the environment and their interaction in the expression of quantitative and qualitative traits and diseases in the population at large. (els.net)
  • However, characterising the influence of genes and the environment traits and diseases is complicated because most traits and diseases are influenced by a number of genetic and nongenetic factors. (els.net)
  • In addition to the problems associated with the characterisation of the genetic and environmental factors influencing traits and diseases due to the complex, multifactorial and context‐dependent pathophysiological basis of most traits and diseases, a number of issues associated with the genetic structure of human populations also complicate relevant analyses. (els.net)
  • Genetic epidemiologists investigate the role of genes, the environment and their interaction between the aetiology and population‐level incidence and prevalence of health‐related traits and diseases within families and in the population at large. (els.net)
  • The main approaches taken by genetic epidemiologists for discovering genes influencing diseases and traits are family‐based linkage and population‐based association studies. (els.net)
  • Once a variant gene has been identified, genetic epidemiologists characterise the effect of that gene on the disease burden or trait distribution in the population using a number of approaches, such as cataloguing its frequency in different populations, examining environmental factors that exacerbate or ameliorate its effects and assessing its origins and its typical effect on the time course of, for example, disease expression among individuals. (els.net)
  • By integrating data from multiple high‐throughput biomedical assays (e.g. data from epigenomics, metabolomics, proteomics and metabolomics), genetic epidemiologists can apply 'system‐level' approaches to understand how various factors contribute to interaction in the expression of health‐related traits and diseases. (els.net)
  • desirable
  • Those opposed argue that selection of 'desirable' traits could send signals about the value of different types of life (the 'expressivist' argument), that we should accept what we are given, and not try to choose and control our children (the 'natural humility' argument).

  • Among other things, powerful people, and those with many autistic traits, tend to prefer solitary activities and are often aloof. (frontiersin.org)
  • In addition to experimental evidence, I cite biographies showing that a surprising number of presidents, prime ministers and other powerful people seem to have had traits like those in question - and interestingly, in animals, leaders are often rigid and insensitive to group members' needs and feelings, mostly acting the way they are themselves inclined to, not responding much to others.

  • framework
  • 22 ] proposed functional mapping , a statistical framework, for mapping QTL regulating dynamic trajectories of traits. (hindawi.com)
  • measurement
  • A trait may be any single feature or quantifiable measurement of an organism. (princeton.edu)
  • To overcome this inadaptability, we therefore propose a mathematical-biological concept and measurement, -index (earliness-index), which cumulatively measures the earliness degree to which a variable (or a dynamic trait) increases or decreases its value. (hindawi.com)

  • One way to demonstrate this valued trait is to do your homework on the company and ask poignant questions that illustrate your knowledge and interest in them," she says. (businessinsider.com)
  • Researchers
  • And other researchers tried to solve this problem by considering the complex trait (with a set of sampled values) as a bunch of simple traits [ 16 - 19 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • These researchers began by studying relationships between a large number of verbal descriptors related to personality traits. (rug.nl)

  • Five
  • The Big Five personality traits was the model to comprehend the relationship between personality and academic behaviors . (rug.nl)
  • Each of the Big Five personality traits contains two separate, but correlated, aspects reflecting a level of personality below the broad domains but above the many facet scales that are also part of the Big Five. (rug.nl)
  • We propose the first non-invasive three-layer architecture in literature based on neural networks that aims to determine the Big Five personality traits of an individual by analyzing offline handwriting. (springer.com)
  • Overall, our approach offers the highest accuracy compared with other state-of-the-art methods and results are computed in maximum 90 s, making the approach faster than the questionnaire or psychological interviews currently used for determining the Big Five personality traits. (springer.com)

  • complex
  • Theoretical proofs and simulation studies show that -index is more general than functional mapping and can be applied to any complex dynamic traits, including those with logistic curves and those with nonmonotonic curves. (hindawi.com)
  • It should be noted, however, that the single-valued traits are only a portion of the numerous traits, of which many others change with time or other independent variables and are the so-called complex traits. (hindawi.com)
  • The complex traits, which can be expressed as a functional or visually a curve, were thought to be infinite-dimensional characters in [ 10 ] or function-valued traits in [ 11 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • However, if the values (a set of traits) of a complex trait are considered separately, the relationships between the values are lost or are too time-consuming to capture due to the large size of the residue covariance matrix. (hindawi.com)
