Coalescent theory – Wikipedia

Badal Joshi rated it it was amazing May 18, Variance in the model comes from both the random passing of alleles from one generation to the next, and the random occurrence of mutations in these alleles.

BookDB marked it as to-read Aug 30, Retrieved from ” https: David Levin is currently reading it Oct 06, The local density of SNPs along chromosomes appears to cluster in accordance with a variance to mean power law and to obey the Tweedie compound Poisson distribution. These traits may arise due to many small mutations, which together have a severe and deleterious effect on the health of the individual [2].

This is mathematically convenient, as the standard exponential distribution has both the expected value and the standard deviation equal to 2 N e. The mathematical theory of the coalescent was developed independently by several groups in the early s as a natural extension of classical population genetics theory and models [1] [2] [3] [4]but can be primarily attributed to John Kingman. The human single-nucleotide polymorphism SNP map has revealed large regional variations in heterozygosity, more so than can be explained on the basis of Poisson-distributed random chance.

Inferring coalescent times from DNA sequence data. Julia Sigwart; Coalescent Theory: It is immensely useful in understanding these diseases and their processes to coalesceng where they are located on chromosomesand how they have been inherited through generations of a family, as can be accomplished through coalescent analysis [1]. The latter are polygenic diseases, controlled by multiple thekry that may occur on different chromosomes, but diseases that are precipitated by a single abnormality are relatively simple to pinpoint and trace — although not so simple that this has been achieved for all diseases.
