Bayesian Causal Phenotype Network Incorporating Genetic Variation and Biological Knowledge

Jee Young Moon, Elias Chaibub Neto, Xinwei Deng, and Brian S. Yandell

in Probabilistic Graphical Models for Genetics, Genomics, and Postgenomics

Published in print:
2014

Mathematics, Probability / Statistics, Biostatistics

In a segregating population, quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping can identify QTLs with a causal effect on a phenotype. A common feature of these methods is that QTL mapping and phenotype network ... More


Quantitative Genetics

Fred W. Allendorf, W. Chris Funk, Sally N. Aitken, Margaret Byrne, and Gordon Luikart

in Conservation and the Genomics of Populations

Published in print:
2022
Published Online:

Subject:
Biology, Biodiversity / Conservation Biology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

Most phenotypic traits are the product of many genes as well as environmental effects, and the resulting phenotypic variation is quantitative rather than qualitative. The extent to which traits are ... More


Evolution and genetics of mutualism

Carina A. Baskett and Douglas W. Schemske

in Mutualism

Published in print:
2015
Published Online:
September 2015

Subject:
Biology, Ecology, Evolutionary Biology / Genetics

Studies of the ecology of mutualisms far outpace those of the genetics and evolution of mutualisms. This chapter develops a conceptual framework for the study of mutualism evolution and reviews the ... More


Multilocus evolution

Glenn-Peter Sætre and Mark Ravinet

in Evolutionary Genetics: Concepts, Analysis, and Practice

Published in print:
2019
Published Online:
July 2019
ISBN:
9780198830917
