Publication for Fast Estimation of Population Recombination Rates

FastEPRR citations


Supervised Machine Learning for Population Genetics: A New Paradigm

PMCID: 5905713
PMID: 29331490
DOI: 10.1016/j.tig.2017.12.005

[…] e training set. By contrast, methodology has been developed [,] that uses boosting to infer recombination rate maps from large sample sizes on the basis of simulated training data. The latest method, FastEPRR (fast estimation of population recombination rates), has much greater computational efficiency than, and equal accuracy to, the widely used LDhat []. Although application of supervised ML met […]


Construction of an ultrahigh density genetic linkage map for Jatropha curcas L. and identification of QTL for fruit yield

Biotechnol Biofuels
PMCID: 5759280
PMID: 29321812
DOI: 10.1186/s13068-017-1004-9

[…] d on nonlinear regression model considering the r2 value = 1 at marker genetic distance of 0 cM to determine the trend of LD decay in Jatropha genomes. Recombination rate analysis was evaluated using FastEPRR with the nonoverlapped sliding window length of 5 cM []. […]


Population Genomics Reveals Speciation and Introgression between Brown Norway Rats and Their Sibling Species

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 5850741
PMID: 28482038
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msx157

[…] To obtain local recombination rate of different regions across the BN rat genome, we performed recombination rate analysis using a machine learning approach implemented in FastEPRR with the nonoverlapped sliding window length of 100 ; ). The local recombination rate was estimated based on the intraspecific DNA polymorphism data of whole BN rat population according to th […]
