Linked supergenes underlie split sex ratio and social organization in an ant

Significance Some social insects exhibit split sex ratios, wherein a subset of colonies produce future queens and others produce males. This phenomenon spawned many influential theoretical studies and empirical tests, both of which have advanced our understanding of parent–offspring conflicts and the maintenance of cooperative breeding. However, previous studies assumed…

Genotype Imputation Workflow

Tool:Genotype Imputation Workflow 0 Hello, I recently had to perform a genome-wide association study and performed genotype imputation to increase the number of SNPs I can evaluate. For that I used the Michigan Imputation Server. I combined all the necessary preprocessing steps and optional filtering steps in an easy to…

Why may BOLT-LMM and SAIGE (quantitative, linear-mixed model) yield different results when ran on the absolutely the same dataset?

As a validation experiment, I have run the same GWAS of a quantitative phenotype derived from the UKBiobank, alongside the genomic data from the UKBiobank, once using the program BOLT-LMM and once using SAIGE linear mixed model (with selected quantitative trait tag). I wanted to see if the results would…

SNP of the SREK1 gene is associated with COPD in Kashi

Introduction Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic respiratory disorder that progresses slowly and is characterized by an obstructive ventilatory pattern, which is rarely reversible. The main risk factors are active smoking, genetic factors, and air pollution. In particular, COPD has been a major public health problem and will…
