Lod method

Lod method

(Science: genetics) a method of linkage analysis using an examination of the common logarithm of the ratio of the likelihood for a particular value of the recombination fraction to that if the recombination fraction is 0.5 (i.e., no linkage); thus, a lod score of 3 at a recombination fraction of 0.2 means that the data are 1000 times more readily explained by supposing a recombination fraction of 0.2 than by supposing the loci are unlinked and the recombination fraction is 0.5.

Origin: logarithm of the odds

amplification in no RT control

I am doing some qRT PCR to assess changes in bacterial gene expression following exposure to antimicrobials. RNA has been isolated by trizol method and subsequently 'cleaned' on column and finally been DNase treated prior to reverse transcription. I am getting amplification in all of my no RT ...

Biological Immortality and Immortalised Cell lines

... cells are used for a wide variety of purposes, from testing toxicity of compounds or drugs to production of eukaryotic proteins. There are several methods can be used to generate immortalized cell lines. One method is to introduce a viral gene that partially deregulates the cell cycle, such as ...
