Small genome of Candidatus Blochmannia, the bacterial endosymbiont of Camponotus, implies irreversible specialization to an intracellular lifestyle. (1/553)

Blochmannia (Candidatus Blochmannia gen. nov.) is the primary bacterial endosymbiont of the ant genus CAMPONOTUS: Like other obligate endosymbionts of insects, Blochmannia occurs exclusively within eukaryotic cells and has experienced long-term vertical transmission through host lineages. In this study, PFGE was used to estimate the genome size of Blochmannia as approximately 800 kb, which is significantly smaller than its free-living relatives in the enterobacteria. This small genome implies that Blochmannia has deleted most of the genetic machinery of related free-living bacteria. Due to restricted gene exchange in obligate endosymbionts, the substantial gene loss in Blochmannia and other insect mutualists may reflect irreversible specialization to a host cellular environment.  (+info)

Multileveled selection on plasmid replication. (2/553)

The replication control genes of bacterial plasmids face selection at two conflicting levels. Plasmid copies that systematically overreplicate relative to their cell mates have a higher chance of fixing in descendant cells, but these cells typically have a lower chance of fixing in the population. Apart from identifying the conflict, this mathematical discussion characterizes the efficiency of the selection levels and suggests how they drive the evolution of kinetic mechanisms. In particular it is hypothesized that: (1) tighter replication control is more vulnerable to selfishness; (2) cis-acting replication activators are relics of a conflict where a plasmid outreplicated its intracellular competitors by monopolizing activators; (3) high-copy plasmids with sloppy replication control arise because intracellular selection favors overreplication, thereby relieving intercellular selection for lower loss rates; (4) the excessive synthesis of cis-acting replication activators and trans-acting inhibitors is the result of an arms race between cis selfishness and trans retaliations; (5) site-specific recombination of plasmid dimers is equivalent to self-policing; and (6) plasmids modify their horizontal transfer to spread without promoting selfishness. It is also discussed how replication control may be subject to a third level of selection acting on the entire population of plasmid-containing cells.  (+info)

Microsatellite diversities and gene flow in the tsetse fly, Glossina morsitans s.l. (3/553)

Tsetse flies occupy discontinuous habitats and gene flow among them needs to be investigated in anticipation of area-wide control programs. Genetic diversities were estimated at six microsatellite loci in seven Glossina morsitans submorsitans Newstead (Diptera: Glossinidae) populations and five microsatellite loci in six G. m. morsitans Westwood populations. Nei's unbiased diversities were 0.808 and 76 alleles in G. m. submorsitans and 0.727 and 55 alleles in G. m. morsitans. Diversities were less in three laboratory cultures. Matings were random within populations. Populations were highly differentiated genetically. Populations were strongly subdivided, as indicated by fixation indices (F(ST)) of 0.18 in G. m. morsitans and 0.17 in G. m. submorsitans. 35% of the genetic variance in G. m. submorsitans was attributed to differences between populations from The Gambia and Ethiopia. All available genetic evidence suggests that genetic drift is much greater than gene flow among G. morsitans s.l. populations.  (+info)

Detecting genomic features under weak selective pressure: the example of codon usage in animals and plants. (4/553)

Large scale experiments of gene inactivation in yeast have shown that 50% of genes have no detectable impact on the phenotype, and similar observations have been made in other model organisms. This apparent paradox is probably due to the fact that many genes only have a marginal contribution to the fitness of organisms. Because of the size of populations and the number of generations that can be studied in laboratories, experimental approaches only permit to detect functional elements that have a strong phenotypic impact. Comparative sequence analysis can help to solve this problem: the analysis of sequences evolution permits to detect the action of selection, and hence to reveal functional features of genomes. This approach will be illustrated by the study of synonymous codon usage in animals and plants.  (+info)

Conflict between nuclear and mitochondrial DNA phylogenies of a recent species radiation: what mtDNA reveals and conceals about modes of speciation in Hawaiian crickets. (5/553)

It has been asserted that recent mtDNA phylogenies support the plausibility of sympatric speciation, long considered a controversial mechanism of the origin of species. If such inferences are reliable, mtDNA phylogenies should be congruent with phylogenies based on other data. In previous work, a mtDNA phylogeny suggested that diversification of the Hawaiian cricket genus Laupala was initiated by single invasions into each of several Hawaiian islands, followed by multiple sympatric divergences within each island. In contrast, a systematic hypothesis based on morphology argues that speciation in Laupala has occurred primarily in allopatry, with two independent species radiations diversifying across the archipelago. In this study, I analyze nuclear DNA (nDNA) sequences from Laupala to compare with sequences from the mtDNA. The nDNA phylogeny corroborates the hypothesis of allopatric divergence and multiple invasions, and when compared with mtDNA patterns, suggests that interspecific hybridization is a persistent feature of the history of Laupala. The discrepancy between mtDNA and nDNA phylogenies reveals that speciation histories based on mtDNA alone can be extensively misleading.  (+info)

Near-neutrality in evolution of genes and gene regulation. (6/553)

The nearly neutral theory contends that the interaction of drift and selection is important and occurs at various levels, including synonymous and nonsynonymous substitutions in protein coding regions and sequence turnover of regulatory elements. Recent progress of the theory is reviewed, and the interaction between drift and selection is suggested to differ at these different levels. Weak selective force on synonymous changes is stable, whereas its consequence on nonsynonymous changes depends on environmental factors. Selection on differentiation of regulatory elements is even more dependent on environmental factors than on amino acid changes. Of particular significance is the role of drift in the evolution of gene regulation that directly participates in morphological evolution. The range of near neutrality depends on the effective size of the population that is influenced by selected linked loci. In addition to the effective population size, molecular chaperones such as heat shock protein 90 have significant effects on the range of near neutrality.  (+info)

Genetic structure of human populations. (7/553)

We studied human population structure using genotypes at 377 autosomal microsatellite loci in 1056 individuals from 52 populations. Within-population differences among individuals account for 93 to 95% of genetic variation; differences among major groups constitute only 3 to 5%. Nevertheless, without using prior information about the origins of individuals, we identified six main genetic clusters, five of which correspond to major geographic regions, and subclusters that often correspond to individual populations. General agreement of genetic and predefined populations suggests that self-reported ancestry can facilitate assessments of epidemiological risks but does not obviate the need to use genetic information in genetic association studies.  (+info)

Noisy clues to the origin of life. (8/553)

The origin of stable self-replicating molecules represents a fundamental obstacle to the origin of life. The low fidelity of primordial replicators places restrictions on the quantity of information encoded in a primitive nucleic acid alphabet. Further difficulties for the origin of life are the role of drift in small primordial populations, reducing the rate of fixation of superior replicators, and the hostile conditions increasing developmental noise. Thus, mutation, noise and drift are three different stochastic effects that are assumed to make the evolution of life improbable. Here we show, to the contrary, how noise present in hostile early environments can increase the probability of faithful replication, by amplifying selection in finite populations. Noise has negative consequences in infinite populations, whereas in finite populations, we observe a synergistic interaction among noise sources. Hence, two factors formerly considered inimical to the origin of life-developmental noise and drift in small populations-can in combination give rise to conditions favourable to robust replication.  (+info)

This study explores biology undergraduates misconceptions about genetic drift. We use qualitative and quantitative methods to describe students definitions, identify common misconceptions, and examine differences before and after instruction on genetic drift. We identify and describe five overarching categories that include 16 distinct misconceptions about genetic drift. The accuracy of students conceptions ranges considerably, from responses indicating only superficial, if any, knowledge of any aspect of evolution to responses indicating knowledge of genetic drift but confusion about the nuances of genetic drift. After instruction, a significantly greater number of responses indicate some knowledge of genetic drift (p = 0.005), but 74.6% of responses still contain at least one misconception. We conclude by presenting a framework that organizes how students conceptions of genetic drift change with instruction. We also articulate three hypotheses regarding undergraduates conceptions of ...

Random genetic drift is the process whereby some allele frequencies change in a population by chance alone. The alleles are not being fixed or eliminated by natural selection. Most of the alleles affected by drift are neutral or nearly neutral with respect to selection. Some are deleterious, in which case they may be accidentally fixed in spite of being selected against. Modern evolutionary theory incorporates random genetic drift as part of population genetics and modern textbooks contain extensive discussions of drift and the influence of population size. The scientific literature has focused recently on the Drift-Barrier Hypothesis, which emphasizes random genetic drift [Learning about modern evolutionary theory: the drift-barrier hypothesis].. Most of the alleles that become fixed in a population are fixed by random genetic drift and not by natural selection. Thus, in a very real sense, drift is the dominant mechanism of evolution. This is especially true in species with large genomes full ...
In order to test the interaction effect of overdominance and random genetic drift on the formation of linkage disequilibria under the condition of multiplicative gene action, linkage disequilibria between isozyme genes, inter se, and between polymorphic inversions and isozyme genes were tested for the second chromosomes of Drosophila melanogaster sampled from two isolated Pacific islands and one locality of the northern district of the mainlands of Japan. The effective sizes of these populations were known to be approximately 3,000 to 6,000 on the basis of the allelism rate of lethal chromosomes and their frequencies. The following results were obtained: (1) No linkage disequilibrium considered to be induced by epistasis, including the interaction between overdominance and random genetic drift, was detected. (2) Nonrandom association between polymorphic inversions and isozyme genes that are included in the inversions or located in the adjacent region outside the inversions was detected. (3) On ...
2) there was a recent paper on developmental evolution using cave-dweling organims as an example. The researchers were talking about loss of eyesight as an adaptation. Personaly I fail to see why is adaptation a better explanation of cave-related blindness then inactivation of genes related to eyesight followed by genetic drift, when its unavoidable that mutations invisible to selection will eventually occur and get fixed by drift, sooner or later. Its invisible to selection if an organism cant process an image with the brain because there is no light or because there is inactivation of genes related to, say, photoreceptors. The energy saved in image processing by the brain should be about the same in both cases, meaning that it is indistinguishable to selection. Why assume it is an adaptation instead of Neutral Evolution? Remember that many of these organims DO HAVE eyes, those eyes also get infected, etc. There is no reason to assume energy savings or protection against infection would be ...
The role of random chance in evolution was first outlined by Hagedoorn and Hagedoorn in 1921 [47]. They highlighted that random survival plays a key role in the loss of variation from populations. Fisher (1922) responded to this with the first, albeit marginally incorrect, mathematical treatment of the Hagedoorn effect [48]. Notably, he expected that many natural populations were too large (an N ~10,000) for the effects of drift to be substantial and thought drift would have an insignificant effect on the evolutionary process. The corrected mathematical treatment and term genetic drift was later coined by a founder of population genetics, Sewall Wright. His first use of the term drift was in 1929,[49] though at the time he was using it in the sense of a directed process of change, or natural selection. Random drift by means of sampling error came to be known as the Sewall-Wright effect, though he was never entirely comfortable to see his name given to it. Wright referred to all changes ...
Random genetic drift describes non-directed changes (unlike natural selection, which is directed change) in the frequencies of the alleles found in a population. Small population sizes provide the most likely environment for random genetic drift to occur. To conceptualize it, think about the coin flipping experiment. One common situation is known as the founder effect, in which a small group migrates to a new habitat. The genetic complement of the subsequent population is based upon the genetic composition of those few individuals, and not on the average allele frequencies of the original population. The founder effect is thought to be responsible for the origin of many new species.. Genetic drift is the random loss of individuals and the alleles they possess. In very small populations, genetic drift may be strong enough to influence the direction of change of allele frequencies even when other evolutionary agents are pushing the frequencies in a different direction. Organisms that normally have ...

Adjust the initial allelic frequency and population size to the right.. Five selectively neutral genes are present in the population for this simulation. Notice that the initial allelic frequency f(a) determines the proportion of alleles that become fixed as opposed to lost. Also note that as the population size (N) is increased, the effect that genetic drift has on the population size is decreased.. If you continue to press run, without pressing reset, the all alleles will eventually become fixed or extinct. Since there is no mutation in this simulation, the lost alleles cannot be recovered. ...

It is well known that in vitro subculture represents a selection pressure on cell lines, and over time this may result in a genetic drift in the cancer cells. In addition, long-term cultures harbor the risk of cross-contamination with other cell lines. The consequences may have major impact on experimental results obtained in various laboratories, where the cell lines no longer reflect the original tumors that they are supposed to represent. Much neglected in the scientific community is a close monitoring of cell cultures by regular phenotypic and genetic characterization. In this report, we present a thorough characterization of the commonly used glioblastoma (GBM) model U-251, which in numerous publications has been wrongly identified as U-373, due to an earlier cross-contamination. In this work, the original U-251 and three subclones of U-251, commonly referred to as U-251 or U-373, were analyzed with regard to their DNA profile, morphology, phenotypic expression, and growth pattern.

Second, the issue about population size and isolation is a complicated one, and goes back to debates between R. A. Fisher and Sewall Wright, and lay at the heart of arguments around speciation. Tattersall is speaking as if there is no controversy, and the Wrightian tradition has won. I dont think its that clear cut, nor are we looking at an either/or distinction. On a single-locus the probability of a new mutation fixation is inversely proportional to population size. This makes sense because the power of random genetic drift to cause deviations generation-to-generation is greater in smaller populations. Intuitively, the fewer you have in your sample the more error you have. But random genetic drift is not the only variable at work, natural selection is relatively population size invariant in its effect. A celebration of the publication of Origin should, I would think, note that natural selection can operate often more effectively on large populations because the noise introduced into the ...
Genetic robustness, the preservation of an optimal phenotype facing genetic mutations, is a fundamental property of living systems incorporated at various levels of biological complexes (1). Protein tolerance to amino acid substitutions (2), gene dispensability in yeast (3), and the error tolerance of complex biological networks (4) are just a few examples. Yet, despite the plethora of observations of genetic robustness, its evolutionary origins are less obvious. In a recent review of the debate concerning the evolutionary origins of robustness, de Visser et al. (1) have grouped the theories addressing the evolution of genetic robustness into three main classes: (i) adaptive, wherein robustness is favored by natural selection and hence evolves directly; (ii) intrinsic, suggesting that robustness is a nonadaptive correlated byproduct of some other phenotypic traits; and (iii) congruent, conjecturing a correlation between environmental and genetic robustness and in which genetic robustness is the ...
The first point Provine brought up is the similarity of genetic drift and inbreeding - both are measured by F statistics, both increase in small populations - but Im more convinced by some of his later arguments, mostly dealing with genetic linkage. In the early treatments of drift by Wright and colleagues, the terms gamete, chromosome, and allele were used interchangeably. Its true that chromosomes can be modeled like marbles being drawn from jar, and genetic drift seems plausible under this model. The same goes for individual loci, but when we begin to model multiple linked loci, recombination is not strong enough to allow us to assume independence. Also, in reality, gametes are randomly sampled from each individual to go on to the next generation, so modeling alleles or chromosomes is not biologically realistic. The problem with the model is compounded when we focus on nucleotide sites within a gene, and even more so when we look at individual codons. Tightly linked sites cannot drift ...

Pathogens evolve rapidly to circumvent drug treatments and immune surveillance, which dramatically impacts public health. Research and treatment are complicated by high genetic diversity of some viruses within and across infected individuals, as well as their complex evolutionary mechanisms, including selection, random genetic drift, and temporal variation in a host environment. Moreover, many pathogens have a large number of linked sites approximately 102 -103 for HIV and hepatitis C virus (HCV) that evolve simultaneously and inter-dependently through two different effects, epistasis due to interaction between proteins and signaling network, and co-inheritance linkage (clonal interference). My previous research focused on developing mathematical tools that predict evolution of pathogens with strong linkage effects, including analytic and computational methods and estimators of evolutionary parameters from sequence data. I have developed analytic and computational methods and estimators of ...

Abstract: In the introduction of Kronholm et al. [1], we discuss what properties a differentiation measure, like FST, should or was assumed to have. Recent developments [2-5] have shown that FST in fact does not have these properties. Our intention was to take a chronological approach, referring to FST as it has traditionally been referred to and subsequently emphasizing some of the problems this measure has.Genetic differentiation among populations, that is differences in allele frequencies, is caused by multiple factors, demographic factors (genetic drift, migration etc.) and mutations.Our goal was to identify which measure should be used when only the demographic parameters are of interest. This is the case when genetic divergence is examined in order to detect local adaptation and assess the ecological relevance of natural variation. In this case ΦST can be useful, if different markers need to be compared to each other. Given this context, this is why we state that the measure should be ...
I, Absentee This three-inch release (100 copies produced) presents a radically different Maps And Diagrams sound than the IDM-styled one documented on earlier recordings for Cactus Island, Static Caravan, and others. Based on the EPs three settings, Tim Martin has re-conceived the Maps And Diagrams to be an ambient soundscaping project, and not a bad move it is either. Each setting offers an immersive experience whose meditative drift is unconstrained by considerations of rhythm or beat structures. A production approach not unlike that used by Stephen Hitchell (in his Echospace [Detroit] productions and Intrusion releases) and Brock Van Wey (in White Clouds Drift On And On and in his Bvdub productions) characterizes Tööpuudus, as each track adopts an oceanic expansiveness in its blend of vaporous textures, electronic static, and keyboard meander.

Geographically isolated populations of a species (unable to interbreed with others of their kind) will be subject to natural selection based upon their environment. If that environment differs from that of other members of the species, the isolated population will begin to diverge genetically, as genetic endowments which favour survival and more offspring are selected for. If the isolated population is sufficiently small, the mechanism of genetic drift may cause a specific genetic variant to become almost universal or absent in that population. If this process is repeated for a sufficiently long time, isolated populations may diverge to such a degree they can no longer interbreed, and therefore become distinct species.

Pisal se je 11. september. Ne, ni bil 2001, ampak 1977. Na svet je privekala Atarijeva konzola z imenom Atari 2600. Če ste si jo hoteli lastiti ste morali odšteti slabih dvesto dolarjev, kar bi danes pomenilo, da bi svojo denarnico skrčili za slabih devetsto evropejcev. Ena najbolj znanih iger zgoraj omenjene konzole je bila Asteroids, ki je izšla dve leti po izidu konzole. Bila je postavljena v vesolje, pri čemer smo se premikali po zaslonu ter streljali na nasprotnike, ki so proti nam prihajali v valovih. Na tak način se je rodila ideja »wave based combat«.. Borba v valovih je igralna zvrst, pri kateri proti nam prihajajo nasprotniki, mi pa se branimo, dokler se lahko. Po uspešnih Asteroidsih se je ta žanr razvijal ter nadgrajeval in postal zelo priljubljen med ljubitelji arkadnih iger. Čeprav vse igre omenjenega žanra, ki so nastajale v naslednjih letih in desetletjih niso požele enakega uspeha kot Asteroids, pa je zadnji naslov v vrsti Nova Drift. Lahko Nova Drift doseže ...

Wave particles move in circles, and for steep waves they also move with a drift in the wave direction. This drift can be found by second order Stokes theory. In this document it is questioned if Stokes theory gives reliable drift on the free surface, or if an extra term should be introduced in the equations. The CFD program COMFLOW is used to show that classic Stokes theory may be insufficient for calculating drift on the free surface.. Copyright © 2013 by ASME ...
In mammals, caloric restriction consistently results in extended lifespan. Epigenetic information encoded by DNA methylation is tightly regulated, but shows a striking drift associated with age that includes both gains and losses of DNA methylation at various sites. Here, we report that epigenetic drift is conserved across species and the rate of drift correlates with lifespan when comparing mice, rhesus monkeys, and humans. Twenty-two to 30-year-old rhesus monkeys exposed to 30% caloric restriction since 7-14 years of age showed attenuation of age-related methylation drift compared to ad libitum-fed controls such that their blood methylation age appeared 7 years younger than their chronologic age. Even more pronounced effects were seen in 2.7-3.2-year-old mice exposed to 40% caloric restriction starting at 0.3 years of age. The effects of caloric restriction on DNA methylation were detectable across different tissues and correlated with gene expression. We propose that epigenetic drift is a determinant
By: Benison Zerrudo. Genetic variation can be linked to pharmacological response using cell line model systems, but biomedical research faces dilemma when using these cell lines due to unstable genes and misidentification. Genomic instability can influence the reproducibility of research experiments that use cancer cell lines. These issues are common, and guidelines has been presented ensuring authentication and integrity of cell lines in every part of a research. Measuring genomic integrity of these cancer cell lines throughout a research study can be very expensive. This study validates the cancer cell line identity in three pharmacogenic studies with screening for genetic drift. Researchers also developed a toolkit called cancer cell line identification or CCLid that enables screening of cell line genomic profiles. This topic can supplement the understanding as to why the need for personalized cancer treatment exist, and that it reinforces the idea that every cancer is unique. Everyday, ...
Provines Ph.D. thesis, later published as a book,[4] documented the early origins of theoretical population genetics in the conflicts between the biostatistics and Mendelian schools of thought. He documented later developments in theoretical population genetics in his biography of Sewall Wright,[5] who was still alive and available for interviews. In this book, Provine criticizes Wright for confounding three different concepts of adaptive landscape: genotype to fitness landscapes, allele frequency to fitness landscapes, and phenotype to fitness landscapes. Provine later grew critical of Wrights views on genetic drift, instead attributing observed effects to the consequences of inbreeding and consequent selection at linked sites. John H. Gillespie credits Provine with stimulating his interest in the topic of hitchhiking or genetic draft as an alternative to genetic drift.[6] Provine later published his critique of genetic drift in a book.[7] Provine defended the importance of mathematics ...
Rapporteur: Chris B. Cameron. Tricia Abe began her lecture by asking How do genetic drift and selection interact to produce new species? That is, is speciation a by-product of adaptation or do adaptive differences accumulate after genetic reorganization has occurred in a founder event? Viewing speciation in a historical context we see that Darwin (1859) was the first to recognize lineage splitting in The Evolution of Species, but he didnt address the underlying mechanism of speciation. Fisher (1918) documented the accumulation of new and favorable mutations in a population, and that adaptation produces genetic differences as a side effect. In 1931 Wright noticed that the non adaptive drift in small stable populations is sufficient to favor gene combinations that are unlikely to occur in larger populations, and that eventually this drift would become hard wired by natural selection. In 1940 Mayr formulated the biological species concept and by 1954 recognized that random genetic drift and ...
In addition to breeding practices, strains should regularly be observed for any changes in phenotype. Where genetic drift is concerned, changes in phenotype can mean anything observable or measurable: appearance, behavior, breeding performance, or experimental readout, to name a few examples. Identifying genetic drift relies on colonists and researchers to first notice phenotypic change, and second, to do something about it.. For some strains, comparison to baseline characteristics may help. The Mouse Phenome Database may have such information, which is searchable by strain or phenotype and includes all data collection protocols (phenome.jax.org).. If a phenotype has changed in a colony, genetic drift is one of many potential sources of variability to investigate. Some questions to consider:. ...
Natural selection can result in new adaptations or in the elimination of bad traits. The former is positive selection, the latter is negative and is always occurring no matter what. Positive selection does happen but is not easy to test, since natural selection occurs via differential reproductive success, but survival of the luckiest alleles via genetic drift can look exactly the same by increasing and decreasing allele frequencies just by chance. The difference between the two is that, in a selection scenario, the trait thats evolving is causing the differential reproduction (whether enhancing or inhibiting, even if ever so slightly affecting it slowly over time), but in a genetic drift scenario the trait is randomly drifting to lower or higher frequencies merely due to chance (unlinked to the trait in question) effects on differential reproduction and chance passing of one allele or the other to offspring. Like selection, drift can completely fix or completely eliminate traits. ...

then the gene frequencies will not change over time and the frequencies in the next generation will be p2 for the AA genotype, 2pq for the Aa genotype and q2 for the aa genotype.. Lets examine the assumptions and conclusions in more detail starting first with the assumptions.. Infinitely large population - No such population actually exists, but does this necessarily negate the Hardy-Weinberg Law? NO!! The effect that is of concern is genetic drift. Genetic drift is a change in gene frequency that is the result of chance deviation from expected genotypic frequencies. This is a problem in small population, but is minimal in moderate sized or larger populations.. Random mating - Random mating refers to matings in a population that occur in proportion to their genotypic frequencies. For example, if the genotypic frequencies in a population are MM=0.83, MN=0.16 and NN=0.01 then we would expect that 68.9% (0.83 x 0.83 X 100) of the matings would occur between MM individuals. If a significant ...
Genetic drift is a change in the frequency of an allele within a population over time. This change in the frequency of the allele or gene variation must occur randomly in order for genetic drift to occur. … A population of rabbits can have brown fur and white fur with brown fur being the dominant allele ...
Many types of random events that can affect the likelihood of alleles being passed to future generations can be imagined. An adult may fail to mate during mating season due to unusually adverse weather; a pregnant mother may randomly discover a rich food source and produce unusually strong or numerous off-spring; all the offspring of one parent may be consumed by predators. Many other scenarios are possible. To see how such events affect allele frequencies, imagine a population that contains four individuals of an organism that reproduces once and dies. Let us examine how allele frequencies change for a gene that has two alleles, A and a. As with other genes, each individual has two alleles, one inherited from each parent. Imagine that three of the individuals are aa genotype, and one is Aa genotype. Thus, of the populations eight copies of the gene, one is A, and seven are a. Now imagine that because of random chance, the Aa individual does not reproduce. Therefore, only aa offspring are ...

Having described some of the genealogical consequences of genetic polymorphism for fecundity variance, an important question concerns the relevance of these results to real populations. Recall that when we derived the diffusion approximations studied in this article, we made the assumption that the fecundity variances of the different genotypes were independent of population size, but that the differences in the mean fecundity were of order N−1. This choice of scalings was motivated by two related concerns. First, it guarantees that selection and genetic drift operate on comparable timescales, so that the diffusion approximations are proper weak limits for the corresponding sequences of finite population models. Second, it also reflects the fact that while the intensity of selection on mean fecundity is independent of population size, the intensity of selection on within-generation fecundity variance is instead inversely proportional to population size. However, as several authors have noted ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - ICON. T2 - An Adaptation of Infinite HMMs for Time Traces with Drift. AU - Sgouralis, Ioannis. AU - Presse, Steve. PY - 2017/5/23. Y1 - 2017/5/23. N2 - Bayesian nonparametric methods have recently transformed emerging areas within data science. One such promising method, the infinite hidden Markov model (iHMM), generalizes the HMM that itself has become a workhorse in single molecule data analysis. The iHMM goes beyond the HMM by self-consistently learning all parameters learned by the HMM in addition to learning the number of states without recourse to any model selection steps. Despite its generality, simple features (such as drift), common to single molecule time traces, result in an overinterpretation of drift and the introduction of artifact states. Here we present an adaptation of the iHMM that can treat data with drift originating from one or many traces (e.g., Förster resonance energy transfer). Our fully Bayesian method couples the iHMM to a continuous control process ...
Abstract: Consider a reflecting diffusion in a domain in $R^d$ that acquires drift in proportion to the amount of local time spent on the boundary of the domain. We show that the stationary distribution for the joint law of the position of the reflecting process and the value of the drift vector has a product form. Moreover, the first component is the symmetrizing measure on the domain for the reflecting diffusion without inert drift, and the second component has a Gaussian distribution. We also consider processes where the drift is given in terms of the gradient of a potential ...
Repetitive sequences are DNA sequences that occur many times in the genome. It has been experimentally shown that repetitive sequences can increase or decrease the expression levels of nearby genes by a variety of mechanisms and that the ability of repetitive sequences to alter gene expression depends on their epigenetic states. The epigenetic states of repetitive sequences depend on random epigenetic drift, stress, the genomic environment of the repetitive sequence, epigenetic inheritance, mutations in the genome, and other factors. Since repetitive sequences constitute approximately one half of the human and mouse genomes, the influence of repetitive sequences on gene expression in the mammalian genome is probably considerable. However, methods to detect and map such effects are lacking. These researchers have developed, and are continuing to develop, methods to associate gene expression changes with repetitive sequences. They use their associations to examine the epigenetic effects of ...
On the population wide scale this enforced symmetry between parental contribution has consequences. Between two diverging populations with common ancestry one only needs one migrant between the two per generation to prevent drift apart. The logic is rather straightforward. Large populations require less migration because of reduced genetic drift. Small populations exhibit more drift, but one individual is a much larger proportion of the population, dampening the divergence. This is why between group inter-demic selection (group selection) is treated with some skepticism by many biologists; for selection to operate one needs heritable variation partitioned between the groups. That variation is unlikely to accrue between neighboring populations, and it is strange to imagine competition at a distance with no interaction (as between inter-continental scale population differences).. The difference with cultural group differences can be traced to the nature of parental inheritance. An individual ...
Good points, but I feel that sometimes you give the impression that everyone moved on from the 3 domain hypothesis, and this is decidedly not true for the majority of microbiologists, which is what I would say are the experts (discussable, I know, but that opens up another can of worms). As for evolution, I think that saying that Im referring to evolutionary biologists who have thought seriously about the issue. isnt exactly the same as most experts. Thats a judgement call. I still think that most evolutionary biologists (and most tend to be zoologists) do think more along the lines of Dawkins than anything else. Most pay lip service to neutral evolution, because they see it as something that is relevant at the molecular level but not where it matters. I agree that most textbooks do cover genetic drift and its importance decently but for some strange reason that doesnt seem to have clicked yet on most zoologists brains (and unfortunately those tend to be the majority of ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - Implications of evolutionary and ecological dynamis to the genetic analysis of fragmentation. AU - Joseph, Leo. AU - Cunningham, M. AU - Sarre, Stephen. PY - 2003. Y1 - 2003. N2 - The expectation of reduced genetic diversity in fragmented environments is rooted in classical population genetics theory (Wright 1978). It can be formally expressed with the following genetic and demographic hypotheses: (1) genetic drift, the random fixation of alleles at a given locus, is increased; (2) inbreeding, the average level of relatedness within populations, is also increased; (3) gene flow between populations is reduced; and (4) the probability of local extinction of demes within a metapopulation is increased (Young et al. 1996). These hypotheses predict that erosion of genetic diversity should be manifest in two broad genetic outcomes. First, diversity within populations isolated in habitat fragments is expected to be reduced relative to that in similar sized areas in an unfragmented ...

This model is an example of genetic drift. In it, patches randomly exchange colors with their neighbors. After enough turns, a color will gain a slight dominance; by statistical advantage, a dominant color becomes more likely to win the entire grid. However, because the process is random, there will usually be many dominant colors before one color finally wins. It shows how trait drifts can occur without any particular purpose or selection pressure. For detailed instructions on using the program, take a look at the info window from the Local Patches model. ...
If synergistic epistasis occurs, each mutation added to a genome has a greater deleterious effect than preceding mutations. Without this effect it is difficult to explain how small populations can survive in the face of genetic drift, or how larger populations can survive a high mutation rate.

Biological molecules, like organisms themselves, are subject to genetic drift and may even become extinct. Molecules that are no longer extant in living systems are of high interest for several reasons including insight into how existing life forms evolved and the possibility that they may have new and useful properties no longer available in currently functioning molecules. Predicting the sequence/structure of such molecules and synthesizing them so that their properties can be tested is the basis of molecular resurrection and may lead not only to a deeper understanding of evolution, but also to the production of artificial proteins with novel properties and even to insight into how life itself began ...

On the basis of a review of current practice in coastal science and engineering with regard to quantitative determination of longshore drift, we conclude that coastal scientists and engineers have been trapped in an expected universe of longshore-transport sand volumes without critical assessment of assumptions made in pioneering studies. As a result, workers in this field have come to accept a range of sand volumes and a range of techniques to measure or predict these volumes, stabilized by opinion of the leading experts. The shortcomings of previous studies and subsequent practice, however, indicate that these transport volumes and techniques may well be wrong. Certainly at present we have no dependable, verifiable, and consistent field measure of net or gross instantaneous or annual longshore transport volumes against which predictions can be compared.. Both field measurements and mathematical model results, especially as used for applied purposes and expressed in annual terms, are suspect ...
