Locus specificity and ERVs - Q from a creationist

... that the reasoning fails if location doesn't matter, I think they were implying that these 'orthologous' (homologous) sequences are at the same loci in chimps and humans. The idea is that, with all the possible locations for this sequence, it is improbable that it would wind up in the same location ...

Re: Locus specificity and ERVs - Q from a creationist

The reasoning fails if the adaptive functions do not depend on their exact loci. I don't really understand your reasoning. However, retroviruses are the major players and drivers of evolution. When they insert into host genome, they can alter host genes located ...

ecological genomics: Microsallites & allele frequency

Hi microsatellites are assumed to have no functional role (i.e. neutral loci). However, many studies have found that microsatellites might have phenotypic effects. In fact, my microsatellites data show some correlations with environmental variables. As you can ...

Re: Genes in the same linkage group are inherited together?

A centimorgan is the distance between two loci where the frequency of a crossover between the two loci per generation is 0.01. So the frequency of crossover between two genes 1.5 cM apart will be 0.015, and the frequency of a crossover between ...
