[…] likely subjected to the crop pollen flow. to assess this, we used a set of rnaseq samples from domesticated and wild native h. annuus (see above) and calculated patterson's d‐statistic using the multipop abbababa2 function in angsd (korneliussen, albrechtsen, & nielsen, ; patterson et al., ). this test uses a four‐member phylogeny and asks whether derived alleles are shared between two […]

[…] the performance of the basic cs algorithm (cs), the proposed modified cs algorithm with pa control (pactrl-cs) and the proposed modified cs algorithm with parameter control and multi-population (multipop-pactrl-cs) by applying them to six classification and two standard time series prediction problems. the classification problems are iris, diabetes diagnoses, thyroid dysfunction, breast […]

[…] the pc, epcr, and tm genes. we used the resequencing data on these genes available from the seattle snps website ( and selected tag snps using multipop software [] with minimum allele frequency set at 5 % and r2 set at 0.8., snps were genotyped using three commercially available technologies according to the manufacturers’ instructions: […]

[…] using the afs. while our simulation study is inherently limited by the range of models and sample sizes considered, our results illustrate the promise of afs-based methods like δaδi [], jaatha [], multipop [], and fastsimcoal2 [] for demographic inference and highlight the importance of collecting large population-level genomic samples for analyses of the afs, particularly when interest lies […]

[…] the second component, probapop computes qtl genotype probabilities given marker information at each chromosome location for each family and stores them in xml formatted files. the last component, multipop builds the pooled model using the genotype probabilities, computes fisher tests and estimates the model parameters . the statistical significance of qtls was assessed using the mcqtl test, […]
