Fast imputation using medium or low-coverage sequence data

Paul M. VanRaden, Chuanyu Sun, Jeffrey R. O'Connell
2015 BMC Genetics  
Accuracy of genotype calling and imputation were high with both simulated bovine and actual human genomes reduced to low-coverage sequence and HD microarray data.  ...  Results: A new algorithm was implemented in findhap (version 4) software and tested using simulated bovine and actual human sequence data with different combinations of reference population size, sequence  ...  This probably caused lower imputation accuracy from array to sequence data in humans than in cattle even though a denser array was simulated for humans.  ...

If animal domestication, leading to intimate association between animals and humans, increased the diversity and intensity of human diseases, selection for HLA diversity would have also increased.  ...  The association between do- mestic animals and humans in Europe may have produced the diversity of diseases that decimated Native Americans.  ... 

When metaphorical language use fails: A case of Zoosemy in the late Qaddafi's political speeches during the uprising

Nyongesa Ben Wekesa
2013 Greener Journal of Social Sciences  
Politics is marked by power play among the politicians themselves and between the politicians and their subjects. When no amicable solution is arrived at, an uprising is eminent.  ...  When it becomes apparent that you are manipulating the language for personal interests, however, powerfully you chose and use metaphors, you are pound to meet resistance.  ...  That is, animals were personified first, and the human-based animal characteristics were used to understand human behaviour.  ...
