The results above are from Kermyt Anderson’s How Well Does Paternity Confidence Match Actual Paternity? This is still one of the best surveys of the field, despite being 12 years ago. A more recent paper, Cuckolded Fathers Rare in Human Populations, uses more powerful genetic genealogy methods to come to the same conclusion as Anderson’s survey: extrapair paternity, or nonpaternity events ...
Happy Thanksgiving (if you are an American)! It’s been a busy few days in the world of personal genomics. By coincidence I have a coauthored comment in Genome Biology out, Rumors of the death of ...
Gene expression - Wikipedia
Gene expression is the process by which information from a gene is used in the synthesis of a functional gene product.These products are often proteins, but in non-protein coding genes such as transfer RNA (tRNA) or small nuclear RNA (snRNA) genes, the product is a functional RNA.. The process of gene expression is used by all known life—eukaryotes (including multicellular organisms ...
Gene expression profiling in cancer - Wikipedia
Cancer is a disease characterized by uncontrolled cell growth and proliferation. For cancer to develop, genes regulating cell growth and differentiation must be altered; these mutations are then maintained through subsequent cell divisions and are thus present in all cancerous cells. Gene expression profiling is a technique used in molecular biology to query the expression of thousands of ...

C-reactive protein (CRP) a protein that is produced in the liver in response to inflammation.CRP is a biomarker of inflammation that is strongly associated with the risk of cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infarction and stroke. Calcification the process of deposition of calcium salts. In the formation of bone this is a normal condition.

Analysis of Relative Gene Expression Data Using Real-Time ...
The two most commonly used methods to analyze data from real-time, quantitative PCR experiments are absolute quantification and relative quantification.
Control of Gene Expression - The Medical Biochemistry Page
Introduction. The controls that act on gene expression (i.e., the ability of a gene to produce a biologically active protein) are much more complex in eukaryotes than in prokaryotes.
