• linkage
  • One implication of these findings is that at any one moment there will be linked genetic variants, exposed simultaneously to selection in the genome, and therefore selection will be sub-optimal due to the linkage cost. (eurekalert.org)
  • If linkage cost exists, wherever recombination is low there will be a greater density of selective variants that do not segregate freely, lowering the efficiency of the selection and therefore the adaptation rate. (eurekalert.org)
  • The results showed a very positive correlation between recombination and adaptation, corroborating the existence of the linkage cost in the genome. (eurekalert.org)
  • The existence of this threshold has two important consequences: (1) the linkage cost disappears beyond a recombination value, or in other words, the selected mutations act as if in practice they segregated independently. (eurekalert.org)
  • We identified by linkage disequilibrium and recombination analyses only limited genetic recombination, which occurred exclusively within the 60-kDa glycoprotein gene subtype IbA10G2, a predominant subtype for outbreaks in industrialized nations and a virulent subtype in the study community. (cdc.gov)

  • These probabilities of recombination can be used to construct a linkage map, or a graphical representation of the location of genes and gene in respect to one another. (wikipedia.org)
  • If linkage is complete, there should be no recombination events that separate the two alleles, and therefore only parental combinations of alleles should be observed in offspring. (wikipedia.org)

  • sexually reproduci
  • Genetic recombination, the process by which sexually reproducing organisms shuffle their genetic material when producing germ cells, leads to offspring with a new genetic make-up and influences the course of evolution. (phys.org)
  • In order to generate germ cells, sexually reproducing organisms undergo a complex series of cell divisions (meiosis) that includes the shuffling of genetic material inherited from the two parents. (phys.org)
  • It also allows sexually reproducing organisms to avoid Muller's ratchet, in which the genomes of an asexual population accumulate genetic deletions in an irreversible manner. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recombination increases the genetic diversity in sexually reproducing organisms and can allow an organism to function in new ways. (biologydictionary.net)
  • genomic
  • The first objective of the study was to determine whether the regions with a greater recombination rate experienced a higher genomic adaptation rate. (eurekalert.org)
  • This asymptote indicates that there is a threshold recombination value beyond which genomic adaptation reaches a maximum. (eurekalert.org)
  • and reasons for emergence of virulent subtypes are poorly understood because of availability of only limited genomic sequence data and lack of robust cultivation systems and genetic manipulation tools ( 13 ). (cdc.gov)
  • Conjugation
  • These observations provided evidence that genetic markers was transferred in one direction during conjugation, from the Hfr to F− cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • The final result of conjugation, transduction, and/or transformation is the production of genetic recombinants, individuals that carry not only the genes they inherited from their parent cells but also the genes introduced to their genomes by conjugation, transduction, and/or transformation. (wikipedia.org)
  • proteins
  • Phageλ encodes its own recombination system, the Red system, comprising Exo, β and γ proteins. (bl.uk)
  • In addition,λ encodes another recombinase, Orf, which participates in the initial stages of genetic exchange and supplies a frmction equivalent to that of the Escherichia coli RecFOR proteins. (bl.uk)
  • RecA
  • Assembly of a nucleoprotein filament comprising single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) and the RecA homolog, Rad51, is a key step necessary for homology search during recombination. (wikipedia.org)
  • loci
  • Here, we present an exact forward-in-time algorithm that can efficiently simulate the evolution of a finite population undergoing mutations, recombination, and natural selection at multiple linked loci. (genetics.org)
  • organism
  • Our map has the highest resolution of recombination events that currently exists for any organism. (phys.org)
  • N. crassa is used as a model organism because it is easy to grow and has a haploid life cycle that makes genetic analysis simple since recessive traits will show up in the offspring. (wikipedia.org)
  • This experiment illustrates the concepts of genetic inheritance in a haploid organism. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is the basis for Mendelian inheritance which characterizes inheritance patterns of genetic material from an organism to its offspring parent developmental cell at the given time and area. (wikipedia.org)
  • mutations
  • We use a pseudo infinite-sites model for mutations ( i.e. , where the number of sites is finite but new mutations can appear only at nonpolymorphic locations) and a finite-sites model for recombination and remove locations that are no longer polymorphic, at regular intervals. (genetics.org)

  • In 1947, Joshua Lederberg and Edward Tatum discovered that nutritional mutants of the bacterium E. coli, when incubated in mixed cultures, exchanged genetic markers to generate new recombinants, although the mating efficiency was inefficient. (wikipedia.org)
  • Later experiments with E. coli strains that mated at a high frequency, which were called Hfr (high frequency of recombinants), revealed how genetic markers were transferred. (wikipedia.org)
  • combinations
  • There has been much discussion of the evolutionary role of genetic recombination: the exchange of parental genetic material that gives rise to new genetic combinations in offspring. (eurekalert.org)
  • Genetic recombination is the production of offspring with combinations of traits that differ from those found in either parent. (wikipedia.org)
  • We find that the recombination graph is generally a very good approximation for models with complete outcrossing, whereas, for models with self-fertilization, the approximation becomes slightly inexact for some combinations of selfing and recombination parameters. (genetics.org)
  • Early in the 1900s William Bateson and Reginald Punnett were studying genetic inheritance and they noted that some combinations of alleles appeared more frequently than others. (wikipedia.org)

  • Grete Kellenberger's major scientific contribution was the discovery that recombination is due to a physical exchange of DNA, and not to selective replication. (wikipedia.org)
