- A Markov chain Monte Carlo strategy for sampling from the joint posterior distribution of pedigrees and population parameters under a Fisher-Wright model with partial selfingIan J Wilson
Institute of Human Genetics, Newcastle University, International Centre for Life, Central Parkway, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3BZ, UK
Theor Popul Biol 72:436-58. 2007..Consequently, this strategy is particularly suited to situations where the sample has been collected from a population which is the result of a recent colonisation process...
- Filaggrin null mutations and childhood atopic eczema: a population-based case-control studySara J Brown
Department of Dermatology, Royal Victoria Infirmary, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
J Allergy Clin Immunol 121:940-46.e3. 2008..Null mutations within the filaggrin gene (FLG) are associated with moderate-to-severe atopic eczema; their role in mild-to-moderate eczema in the general population is unknown...
- X inactivation patterns of closely, but not distantly, related cells are highly correlated: little evidence for stem cell plasticity in normal femalesMark A Vickers
Department of Medicine and Therapeutics, Polwarth Building, Foresterhill, Aberdeen AB25 22D, United Kingdom
Stem Cells 24:2398-405. 2006..This study confirms that XIPs can be used to track stem cell populations, provides a theoretical basis for the power of such studies, and indicates that hemopoietic stem cell plasticity is, at most, uncommon in normal humans...
