Haplotype matching in large cohorts using the Li and Stephens model.

Summary of "Haplotype matching in large cohorts using the Li and Stephens model."

The Li and Stephens model, which approximates the coalescent describing the pattern of variation in a population, underpins a range of key tools and results in genetics. Although highly efficient compared to the coalescent, standard implementations of this model still cannot deal with the very large reference cohorts that are starting to become available, and practical implementations use heuristics to achieve reasonable runtimes.

Convolutional neural network architecture for geometric matching.

We address the problem of determining correspondences between two images in agreement with a geometric model such as an affine, homography or thin-plate spline transformation, and estimating its param...

Association of the SIX6 locus with primary open angle glaucoma in Chinese and Japanese.

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the association profiles of the SIX6 locus with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) in Chinese and Japanese. In study, we tested single marker and haplotype-bas...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A 20 cM region of mouse chromosome 17 that is represented by a least two HAPLOTYPES. One of the haplotypes is referred to as the t-haplotype and contains an unusual array of mutations that affect embryonic development and male fertility. The t-haplotype is maintained in the gene pool by the presence of unusual features that prevent its recombination.

Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.

Theoretical models simulating behavior or activities in nursing, including nursing care, management and economics, theory, assessment, research, and education. Some examples of these models include Orem Self-Care Model, Roy Adaptation Model, and Rogers Life Process Model.

An exchange of DNA between matching or similar sequences.

A principle of estimation in which the estimates of a set of parameters in a statistical model are those quantities minimizing the sum of squared differences between the observed values of a dependent variable and the values predicted by the model.
