A genetic model of substrate deprivation therapy for a glycosphingolipid storage disorder. (1/26926)

Inherited defects in the degradation of glycosphingolipids (GSLs) cause a group of severe diseases known as GSL storage disorders. There are currently no effective treatments for the majority of these disorders. We have explored a new treatment paradigm, substrate deprivation therapy, by constructing a genetic model in mice. Sandhoff's disease mice, which abnormally accumulate GSLs, were bred with mice that were blocked in their synthesis of GSLs. The mice with simultaneous defects in GSL synthesis and degradation no longer accumulated GSLs, had improved neurologic function, and had a much longer life span. However, these mice eventually developed a late-onset neurologic disease because of accumulation of another class of substrate, oligosaccharides. The results support the validity of the substrate deprivation therapy and also highlight some limitations.  (+info)

A computational screen for methylation guide snoRNAs in yeast. (2/26926)

Small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) are required for ribose 2'-O-methylation of eukaryotic ribosomal RNA. Many of the genes for this snoRNA family have remained unidentified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, despite the availability of a complete genome sequence. Probabilistic modeling methods akin to those used in speech recognition and computational linguistics were used to computationally screen the yeast genome and identify 22 methylation guide snoRNAs, snR50 to snR71. Gene disruptions and other experimental characterization confirmed their methylation guide function. In total, 51 of the 55 ribose methylated sites in yeast ribosomal RNA were assigned to 41 different guide snoRNAs.  (+info)

Familial antiphospholipid antibody syndrome: criteria for disease and evidence for autosomal dominant inheritance. (3/26926)

OBJECTIVE: To develop diagnostic criteria for a familial form of antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), identify families with >1 affected member, examine possible modes of inheritance, and determine linkage to potential candidate genes. METHODS: Family members of probands with primary APS were analyzed for clinical and laboratory abnormalities associated with APS. Families with > or =2 affected members were analyzed by segregation analysis and typed for candidate genetic markers. RESULTS: Seven families were identified. Thirty of 101 family members met diagnostic criteria for APS. Segregation studies rejected both environmental and autosomal recessive models, and the data were best fit by either a dominant or codominant model. Linkage analysis showed independent segregation of APS and several candidate genes. CONCLUSION: Clinical and laboratory criteria are essential to identify the spectrum of disease associated with APS. We believe a set of criteria was developed that can precisely define affected family members with APS. Modeling studies utilizing these criteria strongly support a genetic basis for disease in families with APS and suggest that a susceptibility gene is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. However, in these families, APS was not linked with HLA, Fas, or other candidate genes, including beta2-glycoprotein 1, HLA, T cell receptor beta chain, Ig heavy chain, antithrombin III, Fas ligand, factor V, complement factor H, IgK, and Fas.  (+info)

Telomere length dynamics and chromosomal instability in cells derived from telomerase null mice. (4/26926)

To study the effect of continued telomere shortening on chromosome stability, we have analyzed the telomere length of two individual chromosomes (chromosomes 2 and 11) in fibroblasts derived from wild-type mice and from mice lacking the mouse telomerase RNA (mTER) gene using quantitative fluorescence in situ hybridization. Telomere length at both chromosomes decreased with increasing generations of mTER-/- mice. At the 6th mouse generation, this telomere shortening resulted in significantly shorter chromosome 2 telomeres than the average telomere length of all chromosomes. Interestingly, the most frequent fusions found in mTER-/- cells were homologous fusions involving chromosome 2. Immortal cultures derived from the primary mTER-/- cells showed a dramatic accumulation of fusions and translocations, revealing that continued growth in the absence of telomerase is a potent inducer of chromosomal instability. Chromosomes 2 and 11 were frequently involved in these abnormalities suggesting that, in the absence of telomerase, chromosomal instability is determined in part by chromosome-specific telomere length. At various points during the growth of the immortal mTER-/- cells, telomere length was stabilized in a chromosome-specific man-ner. This telomere-maintenance in the absence of telomerase could provide the basis for the ability of mTER-/- cells to grow indefinitely and form tumors.  (+info)

Plasmid replication initiator protein RepD increases the processivity of PcrA DNA helicase. (5/26926)

The replication initiator protein RepD encoded by the Staphylococcus chloramphenicol resistance plasmid pC221 stimulates the helicase activity of the Bacillus stearothermophilus PcrA DNA helicase in vitro. This stimulatory effect seems to be specific for PcrA and differs from the stimulatory effect of the Escherichia coli ribosomal protein L3. Whereas L3 stimulates the PcrA helicase activity by promoting co-operative PcrA binding onto its DNA substrate, RepD stimulates the PcrA helicase activity by increasing the processivity of the enzyme and enables PcrA to displace DNA from a nicked substrate. The implication of these results is that PcrA is the helicase recruited into the replisome by RepD during rolling circle replication of plasmids of the pT181 family.  (+info)

Transplacement mutagenesis: a novel in situ mutagenesis system using phage-plasmid recombination. (6/26926)

Site-specific mutagenesis provides the ability to alter DNA with precision so that the function of any given gene can be more fully understood. Several methods of in vitro mutagenesis are time-consuming and imprecise, requiring the subcloning and sequencing of products. Here we describe a rapid, high fidelity method of in situ mutagenesis in bacteriophage lambda using transplacement. Using this method, mutations are transferred from oligonucleotides to target phages using a plasmid interface. A small (50 bp) homology region bearing a centred point mutation is generated from oligonucleotides and subcloned into a transplacement plasmid bearing positive and negative phage selectable markers. Following a positive/negative selection cycle of integrative recombination and excision, the point mutation is transferred precisely from plasmid to phage in a subset ( approximately 25-50%) of recombinants. As the fidelity of both oligonucleotide synthesis and phage-plasmid recombination is great, this approach is extremely reliable. Using transplacement, point mutations can be accurately deposited within large phage clones and we demonstrate the utility of this technique in the construction of gene targeting vectors in bacteriophages.  (+info)

Rapid modification of bacterial artificial chromosomes by ET-recombination. (7/26926)

We present a method to modify bacterial artificial chromosomes (BACs) resident in their host strain. The method is based on homologous recombination by ET-cloning. We have successfully modified BACs at two distinct loci by recombination with a PCR product containing homology arms of 50 nt. The procedure we describe here is rapid, was found to work with high efficiency and should be applicable to any BAC modification desired.  (+info)

Amplification of cDNA ends based on template-switching effect and step-out PCR. (8/26926)

A new method for amplifying cDNA ends is described which requires only first-strand cDNA synthesis and a single PCR to generate a correct product with very low or no background. The method can be successfully applied to total RNA as well as poly A+ RNA. The same first-strand cDNA can be used to amplify flanking sequences of any cDNA species present in the sample.  (+info)

With novel developments in sequencing technologies, time-sampled data are becoming more available and accessible. Naturally, there have been efforts in parallel to infer population genetic parameters from these data sets. Here, we compare and analyse four recent approaches based on the Wright-Fisher model for inferring selection coefficients (s) given effective population size (N-e), with simulated temporal data sets. Furthermore, we demonstrate the advantage of a recently proposed approximate Bayesian computation (ABC)-based method that is able to correctly infer genomewide average N-e from time-serial data, which is then set as a prior for inferring per-site selection coefficients accurately and precisely. We implement this ABC method in a new software and apply it to a classical time-serial data set of the medionigra genotype in the moth Panaxia dominula. We show that a recessive lethal model is the best explanation for the observed variation in allele frequency by implementing an estimator ...
Here I have studied a series of simple one-locus two-allele models for maternal (parental) selection. Srb et al. (1965, Chapter 11) give several examples for maternal effects that can be attributed to a single diallelic locus; see Wade (1996) for more discussion of the relevance of maternal effects controlled by a small number of loci with large effects. My results indicate similarity between dynamic behaviors under maternal selection and fertility selection. The latter is well-known to be much more complicated than the dynamics resulting from viability selection (e.g., Owen 1953; Bodmer 1965; Hadeler and Liberman 1975). I have shown that maternal selection can result in a simultaneous stability of equilibria of different types. Thus, in the presence of maternal (parental) selection, the outcome of population evolution can significantly depend on initial conditions. With maternal selection, genetic variability can be maintained in a population even if none of the offspring of heterozygous ...
A multivariate quantitative genetic model is analyzed that is based on the assumption that the genetic variation at a locus j primarily influences an underlying physiological variable yj, while influence on the genotypic values is determined by a kind of developmental function which is not changed by mutations at this locus. Assuming additivity among loci the developmental function becomes a linear transformation of the underlying variables y onto the genotypic values x, x = By. In this way the pleiotropic effects become constrained by the structure of the B-matrix. The equilibrium variance under mutation-stabilizing selection balance in infinite and finite populations is derived by using the house of cards approximation. The results are compared to the predictions given by M. Turelli in 1985 for pleiotropic two-character models. It is shown that the B-matrix model gives the same results as Turellis five-allele model, suggesting that the crucial factor determining the equilibrium variance in ...
Suppose you have 8 observations ($i=1,...,8$) from three different states (A, B, C) and you also know that observations for $i=1,2$ are from state A, for $i=3,4,5$ are from state B and for $i=6,7,8$ are from state C. You are trying to estimate parameters with a linear regression model where $\varepsilon_i$ is the error term. The assumptions on this error term are that: $E[\varepsilon_i]=0$, $V[\varepsilon]=\sigma^2$ and:. $$Cov[\varepsilon_i, \varepsilon_j]=\begin{cases} \sigma^2 \rho & \text{ if observation i comes from the same state of observation j} \\ 0 & \text{otherwise} \end{cases}$$. Now you have that:. $$\overline{\varepsilon_h}=\frac{1}{n_h} \sum_{i \in h} \varepsilon_i$$. where $h=A,B,C$. Im asked to compute the variance-covariance matrix of $\overline{\varepsilon}$ (notated $V[\overline{\varepsilon}]$) so Ive started to compute variances and covariances of $\overline{\varepsilon}$ for $h=A, \ B, \ C$.. ...
The advent of the genomic era has necessitated the development of methods capable of analyzing large volumes of genomic data efficiently. Being able to reliably identify bottlenecks-extreme population size changes of short duration-not only is interesting in the context of speciation and extinction but also matters (as a null model) when inferring selection. Bottlenecks can be detected in polymorphism data via their distorting effect on the shape of the underlying genealogy. Here, we use the generating function of genealogies to derive the probability of mutational configurations in short sequence blocks under a simple bottleneck model. Given a large number of nonrecombining blocks, we can compute maximum-likelihood estimates of the time and strength of the bottleneck. Our method relies on a simple summary of the joint distribution of polymorphic sites. We extend the site frequency spectrum by counting mutations in frequency classes in short sequence blocks. Using linkage information over short ...
Linear mixed models have become a popular tool to analyze continuous data from family-based designs by using random effects that model the correlation of subjects from the same family. However, mixed models for family data are challenging to implement with the BUGS (Bayesian inference Using Gibbs Sampling) software because of the high-dimensional covariance matrix of the random effects. This paper describes an efficient parameterization that utilizes the singular value decomposition of the covariance matrix of random effects, includes the BUGS code for such implementation, and extends the parameterization to generalized linear mixed models. The implementation is evaluated using simulated data and an example from a large family-based study is presented with a comparison to other existing methods.

Everyone knows that parents provide more than DNA for their offspring. Development does, after all, start with an egg. But such non-genetic inheritance has been conspicuously absent from discussions of how evolution works. Similarly to plasticity, non-genetic inheritance evolves and can be an adaptation. For example, we could ask how parental and offspring plasticity co-evolve and if this enables non-genetic transmission of information between generations. We can also ask if incomplete epigenetic resetting between generations could ever be favoured by natural selection. We address some of these issues as part of an EU funded large collaborative project called IDEAL.. But non-genetic inheritance is more than an adaptation to transfer information between generations (or a cause of phenotypic variance that biases responses to selection as in many quantitative genetic models). We have suggested there are a number of important insights gained from viewing heredity as a developmental process; by ...
The HCCME= option in the MODEL statement selects the type of heteroscedasticity-consistent covariance matrix. In the presence of heteroscedasticity, the covariance matrix has a complicated structure that can result in inefficiencies in the OLS estimates and biased estimates of the variance-covariance matrix. The variances for cross-sectional and time dummy variables and the covariances with or between the dummy variables are not corrected for heteroscedasticity in the one-way and two-way models. Whether or not HCCME is specified, they are the same. For the two-way models, the variance and the covariances for the intercept are not corrected.[1] Consider the simple linear model: ...
Motivation: To test whether protein folding constraints and secondary structure sequence preferences significantly reduce the space of amino acid words in proteins, we compared the frequencies of four- and five-amino acid word clumps (independent words) in proteins to the frequencies predicted by four random sequence models.. Results: While the human proteome has many overrepresented word clumps, these words come from large protein families with biased compositions (e.g. Zn-fingers). In contrast, in a non-redundant sample of Pfam-AB, only 1% of four-amino acid word clumps (4.7% of 5mer words) are 2-fold overrepresented compared with our simplest random model [MC(0)], and 0.1% (4mers) to 0.5% (5mers) are 2-fold overrepresented compared with a window-shuffled random model. Using a false discovery rate q-value analysis, the number of exceptional four- or five-letter words in real proteins is similar to the number found when comparing words from one random model to another. Consensus overrepresented ...
When called in an array context, returns an array of $n deviates (each deviate being an array reference) generated from the multivariate normal distribution with mean vector @mean and variance-covariance matrix @covar. When called in a scalar context, generates and returns only one such deviate as an array reference, regardless of the value of $n. Argument restrictions: If the dimension of the deviate to be generated is p, @mean should be a length p array of real numbers. @covar should be a length p array of references to length p arrays of real numbers (i.e. a p by p matrix). Further, @covar should be a symmetric positive-definite matrix, although the Perl code does not check positive-definiteness, and the underlying C code assumes the matrix is symmetric. Given that the variance-covariance matrix is symmetric, it doesnt matter if the references refer to rows or columns. If a non-positive definite matrix is passed to the function, it will abort with the following message: ...
1. Basic Genetics of Platypapyrus foursuitii Platypapyrus foursuitii is a diploid organism. One feature that makes the species particularly amenable for genetic studies is that their chromosomal material takes the form of playing cards and can easily be handled like cards. Each card represents alleles in the gene pool, and two cards together represent the genotype of an individual. A person can hold any number of different individual genotypes, depending on the sample size you want. For a class of 25, you can have a population size of 50 by giving each student four cards. Sample sizes much less than 50 can result in significant fluctuations due to sampling error. For 50 individuals, you will need 100 cards or two decks. 2. A one-locus, two-allele model (50 individual organisms in the population) These instructions assume 50 individuals in the population, each individual containing two cards. If you have 25 students, you can give each one two pairs to work with. If you have some other number, ...
We establish the asymptotic sampling distribution of general functions of quantile-based estimators computed from samples that are not necessarily independent. The results provide the statistical framework within which to assess the progressivity of taxes and benefits, their horizontal inequity, and the change in the inequality of income which they cause. By the same token, these findings characterise the sampling distribution of a number of popular indices of progressivity, horizontal inequity, and redistribution. They can also be used to assess welfare and inequality changes using panel data, and to assess poverty when it depends on estimated population quantiles. We illustrate these results using micro data on the incidence of taxes and benefits in Canada.(This abstract was borrowed from another version of this item.)

controls the maximum number of additional iterations PROC MIXED performs to update the fixed-effects and covariance parameter estimates following data point removal. If you specify n > 0, then statistics such as DFFITS, MDFFITS, and the likelihood distances measure the impact of observation(s) on all aspects of the analysis. Typically, the influence will grow compared to values at ITER=0. In models without RANDOM or REPEATED effects, the ITER= option has no effect. This documentation refers to analyses when n > 0 simply as iterative influence analysis, even if final covariance parameter estimates can be updated in a single step (for example, when METHOD=MIVQUE0 or METHOD=TYPE3). This nomenclature reflects the fact that only if n > 0 are all model parameters updated, which can require additional iterations. If n > 0 and METHOD=REML (default) or METHOD=ML, the procedure updates fixed effects and variance-covariance parameters after removing the selected observations with additional Newton-Raphson ...

The additive genetic variance-covariance matrix (G) summarizes the multivariate genetic relationships among a set of traits. The geometry of G describes the distribution of multivariate genetic variance, and generates genetic constraints that bias the direction of evolution.

Current methods for the comparison of G typically share several drawbacks: metrics that lack a direct relationship ...

Both the confidence intervals and the hypothesis testing methods in the independent-sample design require Normality of both samples. If the sample sizes are large (say ,50), Normality is not as critical, as the CLT implies the sampling distributions of the means are approximately Normal. If these parametric assumptions are invalid we must use a non-parametric (distribution free test), even if the latter is less powerful. The plots below indicate that Normal assumptions are not unreasonable for these data, and hence we may be justified in using the two independent sample T-test in this case. ...
Even when natural selection is not operating, the gene frequencies may change a little from the previous generation just by chance. This can happen because the genes that form a new generation are a random sample from the parental generation.. Random sampling occurs whenever a smaller number of successful individuals (or gametes) are sampled from a larger pool of potential survivers and the fitnesses of the genotypes are the same. Random sampling works at every stage as a new generation grows up but it starts at conception. In every species, each individual produces many more gametes than will ever fertilize, or be fertilized, to form new organisms. The successful gametes which do form offspring are a sample from the many gametes that the parents produce. Provided the parent is a heterozygote, such as Aa, it will then produce a large number of gametes, of which approximately one half will be A and the other half a. If that parent produces 10 offspring, it is most likely that five will inherit an ...

The shuffle, also known as the Fishers Exact Test, is a permutation test that can be used to estimate the sampling distribution of a statistic without relying on parametric assumptions. This is especially important when sample sizes are small. The other neat thing about permutation tests is that you dont have to know what the distribution of your statistic is. So if you have a really odd function of your data that you want to use rather than one of the classical statistics you can ...
ive said this before, and ill say it again, a lot of it is purely reactive. race realists are not the only ones who say that race matters. when people make positive assertions about race based on social constructs which map onto to genetic correlations, that gets the ball rolling. finally, the quotation you are using has to be framed in the context of attempting to generate 100,000 year narratives. the fact that race is a fuzzy concept doesnt, to me, deny that it is more realistic than tracing human lineages 4,000 generations. an analogy would be if people attempted to trace races back 20,000 years, a problem that does crop up, and which falls under the same pitfalls as the issues i was bringing up. on the other hand, genetic correlations in the present generation are broken down (in general) by only small levels of deme-to-deme genetic exchange in most regions (e.g., given a modest number of genetic loci discrete clusters quickly emerge by populations which we a priori accept as ...

Z is a measure of the magnitude of bias in the COR. If Z = 1, the case-only estimate of interaction is not biased by genotype-environment association in the underlying population (76). Commonly, this assumption is assessed in control data from a small number of outside studies, using significance testing. Significance testing alone is not sufficient for assessment of potential bias (87). Rarely is Z estimated and/or adjusted for, analogous to other forms of bias such as confounding.. Results from this project illustrate some of the pitfalls of this approach. For instance, for XRCC1 399 ever-never smoking, 18 of the 21 included studies have estimates that are not statistically significantly different than the null value of 1.0. Considering any of these in a statistical significance testing framework would lead to the conclusion that the independence assumption was valid; therefore a case-only study estimate of interaction would not be biased, at least from independence assumption violation. ...
Furthermore, #4 is an important thing to check, but I dont really think of it as an assumption per se. Lets think about how assumptions can be checked. Independence is often checked firstly by thinking about what the data stand for and how they were collected. In addition, it can be checked using things like a runs test, Durbin-Watson test, or examining the pattern of autocorrelations--you can also look at partial autocorrelations. (Note that, these can only be assessed relative to your continuous covariate.) With primarily categorical explanatory variables, homogeneity of variance can be checked by calculating the variance at each level of your factors. Having computed these, there are several tests used to check if they are about the same, primarily Levenes test, but also the Brown-Forsyth test. The $F_{max}$ test, also called Hartleys test is not recommended; if you would like a little more information about that I discuss it here. (Note that these tests can be applied to your ...

Abstract: The proof of Todas celebrated theorem that the polynomial hierarchy is contained in $¶^{# P}$ relies on the fact that, under mild technical conditions on the complexity class $C$, we have $\exists C \subset BP \cdot \oplus C$. More concretely, there is a randomized reduction which transforms nonempty sets and the empty set, respectively, into sets of odd or even size. The customary method is to invoke Valiants and Vaziranis randomized reduction from NP to UP, followed by amplification of the resulting success probability from $1/\poly(n)$ to a constant by combining the parities of $\poly(n)$ trials. Here we give a direct algebraic reduction which achieves constant success probability without the need for amplification. Our reduction is very simple, and its analysis relies on well-known properties of the Legendre symbol in finite fields ...

Methods for simulating samples and sample statistics, under mutation-selection-drift equilibrium for a class of nonneutral population genetics models, and for evaluating the likelihood surface, in selection and mutation parameters, are developed and applied for observed data. The methods apply to large populations in settings in which selection is weak, in the sense that selection intensities, like mutation rates, are of the order of the inverse of the population size. General diploid selection is allowed, but the approach is currently restricted to models, such as the infinite alleles model and certain K-models, in which the type of a mutant allele does not depend on the type of its progenitor allele. The simulation methods have considerable advantages over available alternatives. No other methods currently seem practicable for approximating likelihood surfaces.
Microsatellite loci mutate at an extremely high rate and are generally thought to evolve through a stepwise mutation model. Several differentiation statistics taking into account the particular mutation scheme of the microsatellite have been proposed. The most commonly used is R(ST) which is independent of the mutation rate under a generalized stepwise mutation model. F(ST) and R(ST) are commonly reported in the literature, but often differ widely. Here we compare their statistical performances using individual-based simulations of a finite island model. The simulations were run under different levels of gene flow, mutation rates, population number and sizes. In addition to the per locus statistical properties, we compare two ways of combining R(ST) over loci. Our simulations show that even under a strict stepwise mutation model, no statistic is best overall. All estimators suffer to different extents from large bias and variance. While R(ST) better reflects population differentiation
Author Summary In genome-wide association studies, the multiple testing problem and confounding due to population stratification have been intractable issues. Family-based designs have considered only the transmission of genotypes from founder to nonfounder to prevent sensitivity to the population stratification, which leads to the loss of information. Here we propose a novel analysis approach that combines mutually independent FBAT and screening statistics in a robust way. The proposed method is more powerful than any other, while it preserves the complete robustness of family-based association tests, which only achieves much smaller power level. Furthermore, the proposed method is virtually as powerful as population-based approaches/designs, even in the absence of population stratification. By nature of the proposed method, it is always robust as long as FBAT is valid, and the proposed method achieves the optimal efficiency if our linear model for screening test reasonably explains the observed data
The evolutionary algorithm stochastic process is well-known to be Markovian. These have been under investigation in much of the theoretical evolutionary computing research. When mutation rate is positive, the Markov chain modeling an evolutionary algorithm is irreducible and, therefore, has a unique stationary distribution, yet, rather little is known about the stationary distribution. On the other hand, knowing the stationary distribution may provide some information about the expected times to hit optimum, assessment of the biases due to recombination and is of importance in population genetics to assess whats called a ``genetic load (see the introduction for more details). In this talk I will show how the quotient construction method can be exploited to derive rather explicit bounds on the ratios of the stationary distribution values of various subsets of the state space. In fact, some of the bounds obtained in the current work are expressed in terms of the parameters involved in all the ...
The objective of this study was to estimate genetic parameters for weekly body weight of feed intake of individually fed beef bulls at centralized testing stations in South Africa using random regression models (RRM). The model for cumulative feed intake included the fixed linear regression on third order orthogonal Legendre polynomials of the actual days on test (7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, 77 and 84 day) for starting age group and contemporary group effects. Random regressions on third order orthogonal Legendre polynomials were included for the additive genetic effect of the animal and the additional random effect of weaning-herd-year (WHY) and on fourth order for the additional random permanent environmental effect of the animal.

In 1994, Muse & Gaut (MG) and Goldman & Yang (GY) proposed evolutionary models that recognize the coding structure of the nucleotide sequences under study, by defining a Markovian substitution process with a state space consisting of the 61 sense codons (assuming the universal genetic code). Several variations and extensions to their models have since been proposed, but no general and flexible framework for contrasting the relative performance of alternative approaches has yet been applied. Here, we compute Bayes factors to evaluate the relative merit of several MG- and GY-style of codon substitution models, including recent extensions acknowledging heterogeneous nonsynonymous rates across sites, as well as selective effects inducing uneven amino acid or codon preferences. Our results on three real data sets support a logical model construction following the MG formulation, allowing for a flexible account of global amino acid or codon preferences, while maintaining distinct parameters governing overall
A key question in molecular evolutionary biology concerns the relative roles of mutation and selection in shaping genomic data. Moreover, features of mutation and selection are heterogeneous along the genome and over time. Mechanistic codon substitution models based on the mutation-selection framework are promising approaches to separating these effects. In practice, however, several complications arise, since accounting for such heterogeneities often implies handling models of high dimensionality (e.g., amino acid preferences), or leads to across-site dependence (e.g., CpG hypermutability), making the likelihood function intractable. Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) could address this latter issue. Here, we propose a new approach, named Conditional ABC (CABC), which combines the sampling efficiency of MCMC and the flexibility of ABC. To illustrate the potential of the CABC approach, we apply it to the study of mammalian CpG hypermutability based on a new mutation-level parameter implying
We have demonstrated that a simple one-locus two-allele model of genomic imprinting produces large differences in predictions for additive (Table 2) and dominance terms from a number of standard approaches for partitioning the genotypic value of an individual. These approaches are equivalent in the absence of imprinting under standard Mendelian expression (where heterozygotes have equivalent genotypic values and hence k1 = k2). Although all approaches give identical total genetic variance, there are differences in the partitioning of the genetic variance into additive, dominance and covariance terms (Table 3).. The major differences in the approaches arise due to differences in how breeding values and additive effects are defined. Approaches 1 and 2b incorporate both sex- and generation-dependent terms, and breeding values are equivalent for these approaches (Table 2). However, Approaches 2a and the regression methods (Approaches 3a and 3b) are unable to partition separate male and female terms. ...
A balanced pattern in the allele frequencies of polymorphic loci is a potential sign of selection, particularly of overdominance. Although this type of selection is of some interest in population genetics, there exist no likelihood based approaches specifically tailored to make inference on selection intensity. To fill this gap, we present likelihood methods to estimate selection intensity under k-allele models with overdominance.;The stationary distribution of allele frequencies under a variety of Wright-Fisher k-allele models with selection and parent independent mutation is well studied. However, the statistical properties of maximum likelihood estimates of parameters under these models are not well understood. We show that under each of these models, there is a point in data space which carries the strongest possible signal for selection, yet, at this point, the likelihood is unbounded. This result remains valid even if all of the mutation parameters are assumed to be known. Therefore, ...
For this problem, we know $p=0.43$ and $n=50$. First, we should check our conditions for the sampling distribution of the sample proportion.. \(np=50(0.43)=21.5\) and \(n(1-p)=50(1-0.43)=28.5\) - both are greater than 5.. Since the conditions are satisfied, $\hat{p}$ will have a sampling distribution that is approximately normal with mean \(\mu=0.43\) and standard deviation [standard error] \(\sqrt{\dfrac{0.43(1-0.43)}{50}}\approx 0.07\).. \begin{align} P(0.45,\hat{p},0.5) &=P\left(\frac{0.45-0.43}{0.07}, \frac{\hat{p}-p}{\sqrt{\frac{p(1-p)}{n}}},\frac{0.5-0.43}{0.07}\right)\\ &\approx P\left(0.286,Z,1\right)\\ &=P(Z,1)-P(Z,0.286)\\ &=0.8413-0.6126\\ &=0.2287\end{align}. Therefore, if the true proportion of American who own an iPhone is 43%, then there would be a 22.87% chance that we would see a sample proportion between 45% and 50% when the sample size is 50.. ...
Although complex diseases and traits are thought to have multifactorial genetic basis, the common methods in genome-wide association analyses test each variant for association independent of the others. This computational simplification may lead to reduced power to identify variants with small effect sizes and requires correcting for multiple hypothesis tests with complex relationships. However, advances in computational methods and increase in computational resources are enabling the computation of models that adhere more closely to the theory of multifactorial inheritance. Here, a Bayesian variable selection and model averaging approach is formulated for searching for additive and dominant genetic effects. The approach considers simultaneously all available variants for inclusion as predictors in a linear genotype-phenotype mapping and averages over the uncertainty in the variable selection. This leads to naturally interpretable summary quantities on the significances of the variants and their ...
Biological systems are resistant to perturbations caused by the environment and by the intrinsic noise of the system. Robustness to mutations is a particular aspect of robustness in which the phenotype is resistant to genotypic variation. Mutational robustness has been linked to the ability of the system to generate heritable genetic variation (a property known as evolvability). It is known that greater robustness leads to increased evolvability. Therefore, mechanisms that increase mutational robustness fuel evolvability. Two such mechanisms, molecular chaperones and gene duplication, have been credited with enormous importance in generating functional diversity through the increase of systems robustness to mutational insults. However, the way in which such mechanisms regulate robustness remains largely uncharacterized. In this review, I provide evidence in support of the role of molecular chaperones and gene duplication in innovation. Specifically, I present evidence that these mechanisms ...
We prove a result concerning the joint distribution of alleles at linked loci on a chromosome drawn from the population at stationarity. For a neutral locus, the allele is a draw from the stationary distribution of the mutation process. Furthermore, this allele is independent of the alleles at different loci on any chromosomes in the population.. ...

Although research effort is being expended into determining the importance of epistasis and epistatic variance for complex traits, there is considerable controversy about their importance. Here we undertake an analysis for quantitative traits utilizing a range of multilocus quantitative genetic models and gene frequency distributions, focusing on the potential magnitude of the epistatic variance. All the epistatic terms involving a particular locus appear in its average effect, with the number of two-locus interaction terms increasing in proportion to the square of the number of loci and that of third order as the cube and so on. Hence multilocus epistasis makes substantial contributions to the additive variance and does not, per se, lead to large increases in the nonadditive part of the genotypic variance. Even though this proportion can be high where epistasis is antagonistic to direct effects, it reduces with multiple loci. As the magnitude of the epistatic variance depends critically on the ...
The dominant character of leaf size varies with different genetic models and leaf positions. In Model 1, the dominant characters of top and lower leaves are small size, but for the middle leaves it is large size. In Model 2, large size is dominant for three types of leaves. In Model 3, small size is dominant for the top and middle leaves, but recessive for lower leaves. In Model 4, small size is dominant in the top and lower leaves, but recessive in the middle leaves (Table 6). Therefore, we can not conclude and illustrate the inheritance of leaf size for tobacco leaves. Leaf size was determined by genetics and environment (Gurevitch, 1992); hence it may be suitable to illustrate the genetic mechanism for leaf size in a fixed position of single leaf, or increase the number of planted locations to increase the generational mean. This would allow us to estimate the effect of genetic-environmental interaction and understand the inheritance of leaf size.. Genetic Models and Inheritance of Leaf ...
In this work, we built a pipeline, extTADA, for the integrated Bayesian analysis of DN mutations and rare CC variants to infer rare-variant genetic architecture parameters and identify risk genes. We applied extTADA to data available for SCZ and four other NDDs (Additional file 1: Figure S1).. The extTADA pipeline extTADA is based on previous work in autism sequencing studies, TADA [16, 31]. It conducts a full Bayesian analysis of a simple rare-variant genetic architecture model and it borrows information across all annotation categories and DN and CC samples in genetic parameter inference, which is critical for sparse rare-variant sequence data. Using MCMC, extTADA samples from the joint posterior density of risk-gene proportion and mean relative risk parameters, and provides gene-level disease-association BFs, PPs, and FDRs. We hope that extTADA (https://github.com/hoangtn/extTADA) will be generally useful for rare-variant analyses across complex traits. extTADA can be used for rare CC variant ...
Background: Localization of complex traits by genetic linkage analysis may involve exploration of a vast multidimensional parameter space. The posterior probability of linkage (PPL), a class of statistics for complex trait genetic mapping in humans, is designed to model the trait model complexity represented by the multidimensional parameter space in a mathematically rigorous fashion. However, the method requires the evaluation of integrals with no functional form, making it difficult to compute, and thus further test, develop and apply. This paper describes MLIP, a multiprocessor two-point genetic linkage analysis system that supports statistical calculations, such as the PPL, based on the full parameter space implicit in the linkage likelihood. Results: The fundamental question we address here is whether the use of additional processors effectively reduces total computation time for a PPL calculation. We use a variety of data - both simulated and real - to explore the question how close can ...

For any statistical analysis, Model selection is necessary and required. In many cases of selection, Bayes factor is one of the important basic elements. For the unilateral hypothesis testing problem, we extend the harmony of frequency and Bayesian evidence to the generalized p-value of unilateral hypothesis testing problem, and study the harmony of generalized P-value and posterior probability of original hypothesis. For the problem of single point hypothesis testing, the posterior probability of the Bayes evidence under the traditional Bayes testing method, that is, the Bayes factor or the single point original hypothesis is established, is analyzed, a phenomenon known as the Lindley paradox, which is at odds with the classical frequency evidence of p-value. At this point, many statisticians have been worked for this from both frequentist and Bayesian perspective. In this paper, I am going to focus on Bayesian approach to model selection, starting from Bayes factors and going within Lindley Paradox,
In JMP Genomics, the Relationship Matrix analysis is used for computing and displaying relatedness among lines. The Relationship Matrix tool estimates the relationships among the lines using marker data, rather than pedigree information (Kinship Matrix tool), and computes the relationship measures directly while also accounting for selection and genetic drift. The Relationship Matrix computes one of three options: Identity-by-Descent, Identity-by-State, or Allele-Sharing-Similarity. Output from this procedure can serve as the K matrix, representing familial relatedness, in a Q-K mixed model. This post will focus on the Relationship Matrix using a data set containing 343 rice lines with 8,336 markers.

3. The last point we discussed, which is maybe the most interesting, is the issue of the infinitesimal model. The infinitesimal model, originated by Fisher, assumes that contributions to the genetic variance are additive, relatively small and coming from many loci. The multiplication of QTL studies and other genomic approaches this last years has led to numerous discussions questioning this model, assuming that the reason for the lack of evidence for phenotypic traits controlled by few loci was more or less technological. We have ourselves discussed this issue in this very blog including when studies about human height and some QTLs found to explain just a few percents of variation. Well in light of this article it seems that it is again the case in drosophila, as control for height is seems to be largely polygenic, and the estimates presented here are even a low estimate as the methodology used is quite conservative (polymorphisms with population frequencies under 10% were not even analyzed ...

I started this guide with a problem that gives conventional statistics extreme difficulty but is strikingly simple for Bayesian analysis: Conventional statistics do not allow researchers to make claims about one of the models being tested (sometimes the only model). This inferential asymmetry is toxic to interpreting research results. Bayes factors solve the problem of inferential asymmetry by treating all models equally, and have many other benefits: 1) No penalty for optional stopping or multiple comparisons. Collect data until you feel like stopping or run out of money and make as many model comparisons as you like; 2) Bayes factors give directly interpretable outputs. A Bayes factor means the same thing whether n is 10 or 10,000, and whether we compared 2 or 20 models. A credible interval ranging from .38 to .94 means that we should believe with 95% certainty that the true value lies in that range. 3) Prior probability distributions allow researchers to intimately connect their theories to ...
We consider a stochastic evolutionary model for a phenotype developing amongst n related species with unknown phylogeny. The unknown tree ismodelled by a Yule process conditioned on n contemporary nodes. The trait value is assumed to evolve along lineages as an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. As a result, the trait values of the n species form a sample with dependent observations. We establish three limit theorems for the samplemean corresponding to three domains for the adaptation rate. In the case of fast adaptation, we show that for large n the normalized sample mean isapproximately normally distributed. Using these limit theorems, we develop novel confidence interval formulae for the optimal trait value.. ...
The deviance is profiled with respect to the fixed-effects parameters but not with respect to sigma; that is, the function takes parameters for the variance-covariance parameters and for the residual standard deviation. The random-effects variance-covariance parameters are on the standard deviation/correlation scale, not the theta (Cholesky factor) scale.
Populations diverge from each other as a result of evolutionary forces such as genetic drift, natural selection, mutation, and migration. For certain types of genetic markers, and for single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), in particular, it is reasonable to presume that genotypes at most loci are selectively neutral. Because demographic parameters (e.g. population size and migration rates) are common across all loci, locus-specific variation, which can be measured by Wrights FST, will depart from a common mean only for loci with unusually high/low rate of mutation or for loci closely associated with genomic regions having a substantial effect on fitness. We propose two alternative Bayesian hierarchical-beta models to estimate locus-specific effects on FST. To detect loci for which locus-specific effects are not well explained by the common FST, we use the Kullback-Leibler divergence measure (KLD) to measure the divergence between the posterior distributions of locus-specific effects and the common FST

Genetic algorithms (GA) are a computational paradigm inspired by the mechanics of natural evolution, including survival of the fittest, reproduction, and mutation. Surprisingly, these mechanics can be used to solve (i.e. compute) a wide range of practical problems, including numeric problems. Concrete examples illustrate how to encode a problem for solution as a genetic algorithm, and help explain why genetic algorithms work. Genetic algorithms are a popular line of current research, and there are many references describing both the theory of genetic algorithms and their use in practical problem solving ...
Math has an impact on just about every aspect of our lives including some that we dont often think about. Math helped change the outcome of WWII, it also shows up in the way we drive our cars and the way we manage our finances. In celebration of Math Awareness Month, here are four TI-Nspire activities to use in your classes - whether you teach algebra, calculus or statistics. 1: German Tanks: Exploring Sampling Distributions. In this activity, your students will be challenged with the same problem the WWII Allies generals had: How do you determine how many German tanks there are? In WWII, the statisticians working for the Allies used sample statistics and sampling distributions to help determine the number of German tanks. Students explore different sample statistics and use simulation to develop a statistic that is effective in approximating the maximum number in a population. ...

My main disagreement with the authors is over their use of confirmatory/exploratory as the distinction between analyses that have been planned, and preferably preregistered, and those that are exploratory. Its a vital distinction, of course, but confirmatory, while a traditional and widely-used term, does not capture well the intended meaning. Confirmatory vs exploratory probably originates with the two approaches to using factor analysis. It could make sense to follow an exploratory FA that identified a promising factor structure with a test of that now-prespecified structure with a new set of data. That second test might reasonably be labelled confirmatory of that structure, although the data could of course cast doubt on rather than confirm the FA model under test.. By contrast, a typical preregistered investigation, in which the research questions and the corresponding data analysis are fully planned, asks questions about the sizes of effects. It estimates effect sizes rather than seeks ...
