  • natural
  • Due to their reduced phenotypic expression and their consequent reduced selection, recessive genes are, more often than not, detrimental phenotypes by causing the organism to be less fit to its natural environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • genome
  • Attractive' male birds that mate with many females aren't passing on the best genes to their offspring, according to new UCL research which found promiscuity in male birds leads to small, genetic faults in the species' genome. (phys.org)
  • In recent years, there has been an explosion of interest in identifying the specific genetic loci underlying these adaptations using whole genome genotyping (and now sequencing). (genomesunzipped.org)
  • Curtis, P. J. 2004-08-01 00:00:00 A cDNA library of short random fragments derived from four of the five genes of the rabies virus genome has been used to isolate genetic suppressor elements (GSEs) expressed intracellularly that inhibit rabies virus replication. (deepdyve.com)
  • genes
  • It is therefore important for a woman to wisely choose a mate who is likely to provide not just good genetic material but resources and protection that will allow her and her children to thrive and pass on their genes. (jasna.org)
  • Spanish health authorities said that they have authorized the genetic screening of pre-implantation embryos to ensure they do not carry genes that might cause cancer. (medindia.net)
  • critics
  • A number of literary critics have found the principles of sexual selection particularly relevant to Austen's novels, with their focus on the complex dynamics of courtship, especially from the woman's point of view. (jasna.org)
  • Critics of genetic selection for deafness consider deafness to be a disability that limits a child's potential. (iit.edu)
  • frequency
  • I've tried to avoid the alphabet soup of acronyms for tests for selection in the above discussion, but people who have read papers using these tests will recognize tests based on haplotype homozygosity or the site frequency spectrum as tests of the latter type, and tests based on FST as tests of the first type (there are also tests like XP-EHH which combine aspects of the two). (genomesunzipped.org)
  • Relation
  • 1 According to Charles Darwin (in The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex ), sexual selection involves two components: male competition with other males for access to females and female choice of the most appealing males. (jasna.org)
  • effect
  • The genetic effect of selection at the sire level was also considered (sire selection), assuming selection of 80% of sires producing the most resistant offspring based on their breeding values, as well as the combined effect. (wur.nl)
  • The effect of selection was measured by the time in years required to eliminate infection. (wur.nl)
  • artificial
  • To facilitate genomic selection, we developed a method to create user-defined (artificial) bins, in which breakpoints are allowed within bins. (genetics.org)
  • male
  • Androgen insensitivity syndrome (AIS) is an intersex condition in which there is a partial or complete inability of many cells in the affected genetic male to respond to androgenic hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • This can prevent or impair the masculinization of male genitalia in the developing genetic male (chromosomal XY) fetus, as well as the development of male secondary sexual characteristics at puberty. (wikipedia.org)
  • fitness
  • A generic selection procedure may be implemented as follows: The fitness function is evaluated for each individual, providing fitness values, which are then normalized. (wikipedia.org)
  • problems
  • In this first period his first investigations were related to the selection of wheats, due to problems of adaptation of the foreign wheats to the conditions of Uruguay. (wikipedia.org)
  • book
  • This book would be a valuable guide to the under-graduates and post-graduates of agricultural universities and institutes that are interested and/or involved in genetic improvement of crop plants using modern tools. (springer.com)
  • work
  • A work begun in 1912 with 377 selections of wheats that highlightedthe plant breeding as a powerful tool for improve the agricultural yields, which led in 1919 to the recategorization of La Estanzuela by legislation such as Phytotechnical Institute and National Seedling. (wikipedia.org)
  • His seminal work, "Simulation of genetic systems by automatic digital computers" (1958), is quoted in the literature to this day. (wikipedia.org)
  • early
  • Humans have been breeding crops until they're bigger and more nutritious since the early days of agriculture, but genetic manipulation isn't the only way to give plants a boost. (phys.org)
