Identification of genomic regions and candidate genes for chicken meat ultimate pH by combined detection of selection signatures and QTL

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5918591
PMID: 29695245
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4690-1

[…] ters of an individual are automatically learnt from the data. However, this approach requires specifying the number K of haplotype clusters. Applying the cross-validation procedure implemented in the fastPHASE software to genotype data from G0, we set this number to 12 (option -K). We inferred haplotype clusters using 50 Expectation-Maximisation (EM) runs (option –nfit). Following Fariello et al. […]


Canine NAPEPLD associated models of human myelin disorders

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5895582
PMID: 29643404
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23938-7

[…] ly a fast score test (GenABEL) for association corrected for possible stratification by principal components was performed. Haplotypes around the significantly associated locus were constructed using fastPHASE. All genome positions refer to the CanFam3.1 reference sequence assembly. […]


Homo sapiens Specific Binding Site Variants within Brain Exclusive Enhancers Are Subject to Accelerated Divergence across Human Population

Genome Biol Evol
PMCID: 5952923
PMID: 29608725
DOI: 10.1093/gbe/evy052
call_split See protocol

[…] mes Project Phase3 data was employed to see the trend of natural selection among the human population (). Unphased VCF files from 1000 Genomes Project were converted to phased haplotype files through fastPHASE (). In order to generate analysis that highlights the segregating alleles to be under the influence of positive selection, extended haplotype homozygosity (EHH) plots and relative EHH (rEHH) […]


Whole genome sequences of 89 Chinese sheep suggest role of RXFP2 in the development of unique horn phenotype as response to semi feralization

PMCID: 5905515
PMID: 29668959
DOI: 10.1093/gigascience/giy019

[…] Furthermore, the cross-population extended haplotype homozygosity [] was estimated between PT vs MGS, OL vs MGS, VT vs MGS, and BY vs MGS for candidate sweep region, based on haplotype data phased by fastPHASE []. GO functional enrichment analysis of the candidate genes was performed using ClueGO [], in which the P values were corrected using the Benjamini-Hochberg approach (). Then, a list of can […]


Convergent genomic signatures of domestication in sheep and goats

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5840369
PMID: 29511174
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03206-y

[…] rmation, hapFLK uses the Scheet and Stephens’ multipoint model for multilocus genotypes that can be fitted to unphased data. One of the main applications of this model is to perform phase estimation (fastPHASE software). In our analysis, the model was trained on unphased data, and therefore our analysis accounts for phase uncertainty. The method was used to regroup local haplotypes along chromosom […]


Mapping of a Major QTL for Ceratocystis Wilt Disease in an F1 Population of Theobroma cacao

Front Plant Sci
PMCID: 5817064
PMID: 29491879
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2018.00155

[…] × “K 101”) and the fifth cross includes two diversity panel members, “IMC 67” × “ICS 95.” In addition, a set of 31 diversity panel members from distinct Theobroma cacao structural groups was run with fastPhase (Scheet and Stephens, ). Two sets of markers were phased; the first set, contained the three markers in the Ceratocystis wilt QTL region on chromosome VI. The second set of markers included […]
