  • genomic
  • One's genotype differs subtly from one's genomic sequence. (wikipedia.org)
  • Genotype frequency may also be used in the future (for "genomic profiling") to predict someone's having a disease or even a birth defect. (wikipedia.org)
  • Current methods of genotyping include restriction fragment length polymorphism identification (RFLPI) of genomic DNA, random amplified polymorphic detection (RAPD) of genomic DNA, amplified fragment length polymorphism detection (AFLPD), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), DNA sequencing, allele specific oligonucleotide (ASO) probes, and hybridization to DNA microarrays or beads. (wikipedia.org)
  • SNPs
  • As most commonly used within SNPedia, genotype refers to the pair of SNPs inherited at a given chromosomal position, one inherited from Dad, one inherited from Mom. (snpedia.com)
  • The increase of interest in SNPs has been reflected by the furious development of a diverse range of SNP genotyping methods. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because DASH genotyping is measuring a quantifiable change in Tm, it is capable of measuring all types of mutations, not just SNPs. (wikipedia.org)
  • evolutionary
  • The following year, I found out that Dr. D'Adamo had made his categories more specific: According to his new book, "Change Your Genetic Destiny," there are six genotypes, each with its own needs, its own evolutionary story, its own strengths and weaknesses. (huffingtonpost.com)
  • In this study, researchers were able to suggest a speculative framework for the evolutionary history underlying current-day phenotypic variation in human skin pigmentation based on the similarities and differences they found in the genotype. (wikipedia.org)
  • gene
  • Genotype frequency and gene frequency are closely related variables, and both are easy to measure. (blackwellpublishing.com)
  • In the decades following the publications of his first paper on the "thrifty genotype" hypothesis, Neel researched the frequency of diabetes and (increasingly) obesity in a number of other populations and sought out observations that might disprove or discount his "thrifty gene" hypothesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • individuals
  • It can be demonstrated mathematically that sexual reproduction virtually guarantees that each individual will have a unique genotype (except for those individuals, such as identical twins, who are derived from the same fertilized egg). (britannica.com)
  • Individuals of the same genotype breed alike. (daylilies.org)
  • Genotype frequency in a population is the number of individuals with a given genotype divided by the total number of individuals in the population. (wikipedia.org)
  • Genotyping applies to a broad range of individuals, including microorganisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, in modern societies with a constant abundance of food, this genotype efficiently prepares individuals for a famine that never comes. (wikipedia.org)
  • affects
  • All the genotypes and its subtypes affects the liver to the same extent of damage irrespective of the HCV genotype Among the common six genotypes, genotype 1 is the most prevalent form in the United States of America, covering around 70-90% of total infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • Genotype 4 and 5 affects a large proportion of the population in undeveloped countries. (wikipedia.org)
  • He went on to advance that the thrifty genotype concept be thought of in the context of a "compromised" genotype that affects several other metabolically-related diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • mutations
  • In all cases, the viral genotype of the HCV stays the same, occasionally mutations do occur making the treatment more complex by targeting the changes in the genotype. (wikipedia.org)
  • populations
  • Traditionally genotyping is the use of DNA sequences to define biological populations by use of molecular tools. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to the hypothesis, the 'thrifty' genotype would have been advantageous for hunter-gatherer populations, especially child-bearing women, because it would allow them to fatten more quickly during times of abundance. (wikipedia.org)
  • identical
  • During asexual reproduction, the genotype passed from the single parent cell to the two (usually) daughter cell s produced is identical. (everything2.com)
  • Symptoms
  • Some of the HCV genotypes may develop in people without symptoms leading to dangerous conditions like liver cirrhosis causing a permanent damage to liver and the unnoticed HCV conditions will affect brain, joints, blood vessels, bones, and kidneys. (wikipedia.org)

  • population
  • As the Finnish population is isolated and has recently undergone a population bottleneck, relative to other countries, it offers two main benefits for genotype-first studies. (wikipedia.org)
