 Maximum likelihood estimation of locusspecific mutation rates in Ychromosome short tandem repeatsOsnat RavidAmir
Department of Statistics and Operation Research, Tel Aviv, Israel
Bioinformatics 26:i4405. 2010..Here we show a novel method for estimation of sitespecific YSTR mutation rates from partial phylogenetic information, via the maximum likelihood framework...  Accurate estimation of heritability in genome wide studies using random effects modelsDavid Golan
School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel
Bioinformatics 27:i31723. 2011..2010) have demonstrated that the heritability of height is much higher than the ~10% associated with identified genetic factors. However, Yang et al. (2010) relied on a heuristic for performing estimation in this model...  Weighted poolingpractical and costeffective techniques for pooled highthroughput sequencingDavid Golan
School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel
Bioinformatics 28:i197206. 2012..One can then infer the number of carriers in a pool, and by combining information across pools, reconstruct the identity of the carriers...  Linkage disequilibrium analysis reveals an albuminuria risk haplotype containing three missense mutations in the cubilin gene with striking differences among European and African ancestry populationsShay Tzur
