  • Most of these ISRs did not contain any tRNA genes, and only single copies of the tRNA Ala gene were found in those that did. (
  • The rate of evolution of mitochondrial DNA is generally higher than that of nuclear genes due to the lack of a known repair mechanism for mutations that arise during replication [ 3 ]. (
  • This produces a sufficient number of copies of each cDNA so that the sample can be aliquoted for parallel singleplex PCR analysis of all the targeted genes. (
  • As opposed to whole transcriptome analysis, this type of selected screening is performed on a larger number of samples than the number of genes analyzed. (
  • Therefore, without assuming underlying expression distributions or relying explicitly on the actual gene expression values, TuBA can generate graphs in which the nodes correspond to the genes, and the edges correspond to the shared samples. (
  • Interestingly, more than 50 percent of these signatures were associated with alterations in the DNA that results in amplification (or deletion) of genes' copies, which subsequently result in higher (or lower) level of gene expression. (
  • It has thus become clear that human genetic variation ranges from single base-pair changes at the sequence level up to multi-megabase chromosome differences detectable by microscopy. (
  • Recently, our view of human genetic variation has been extended by the observation of abundant and widespread variation in the copy number of submicroscopic DNA segments 12 - 21 . (

  • The oötid competition model can account for both high mean rates of female-specific nondisjunction in Drosophila and humans as well as the standing genetic variation in this critical fitness character in natural populations. (
  • One possible explanation for the observed sex bias in rates of nondisjunction is that natural populations do not harbor any genetic variation in rates of female-specific nondisjunction. (
  • Numerous previous studies have detected genetic variation for recombination rates in female meiosis (reviewed in B rooks 1988 ). (

  • In addition, shRNA pools created via chip-based method are known to contain a high number of mutations which limits their functionality. (
  • Mutations in the DNA are the source of variation in Darwinian evolution. (
  • Therefore it is likely that the examination of DNA differences between closely related species or among polymorphic variations in DNA of a given species will give insight into the nature of the mutations and the process of evolution. (

  • In this study, we profiled 70 colorectal cancer cell lines for mutations and DNA copy number by whole-exome sequencing and SNP microarray analyses, respectively. (
  • Even after accounting for all the mutations reported for the disease up to 2014, the number of mutations is still under 2,000 [ 4 ]. (
  • Our power analysis suggested that by choosing the described number of samples there was a just under 90% chance of detecting moderate differences in the proportion of mutations between HPV+ and HPV- HNSCC samples (w = 0.5, P = 0.05). (
  • However, we also identify variation that appears damaging, but is actually benign, such as SCARF2 mutations in patients that do not clinically present signs of Van den Ende-Gupta syndrome. (
  • In bioinformatics, a DNA read error occurs when a sequence assembler changes one DNA base for a different base. (

  • When scientists are using a reference genome, they can quickly and easily tell where tips are located by comparing the graph of the reference genome and the graph of the sequence. (
  • These bubbles and tips can then be removed, since we can identify that they were formed from errors in the bp reads, giving us a graph structure that should accurately and completely reflect the original sequence. (

(
  • However, the number of butyrate-producing bacteria in complex fecal samples has been difficult to estimate by targeting the 16S rRNA gene, because these bacteria do not form a homogeneous phylogenetic group, and both butyrate producers and non-butyrate producers are found within the same phylogenetic clusters belonging to Clostridium clusters I, III, IV, XI, XIVa, XV, and XVI ( 27 ).
