Regions of common inter individual DNA methylation differences in human monocytes: genetic basis and potential function

PMCID: 5530492
PMID: 28747224
DOI: 10.1186/s13072-017-0144-2

[…] that naturally takes values between 0 and 1 [] such as methylation levels. Each component beta distributions have two parameters α and β that determine the shape of the beta distribution. We used the betamix software [] to robustly fit a three-component beta mixture model to the observed histogram.Let α i and β i be the beta distribution parameters and π k the mixture coefficient of component k €  […]


The Influence of Snowmobile Trails on Coyote Movements during Winter in High Elevation Landscapes

PLoS One
PMCID: 3867407
PMID: 24367565
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0082862

[…] ers) on and off the snowmobile trails could explain the percentage of time coyotes spend on snowmobile trails (i.e., ‘%Track’). To address this question, we used beta-regression mixed models via the ‘betamix’ procedure implemented in the R library ‘betareg’ (R software version 2.6.2) . Mixed beta regression models can be implemented in situations where the dependent variable (%Track) is continuous […]
