However, the haplotype diversity of the 10 Tongren frog populations (0.0000 to 0.7930) was lower than that reported by Zhong et al.
The researchers looked for inherited single nucleotide polymorphisms -- inherited changes in a single letter of DNA -- that would allow them to map haplotypes in the centromere.
The haplotypes of mtDNA control region of Agu pigs were aligned with the haplotypes of 30 pig breeds obtained from the NCBI database (Table 1).
The TCS statistical parsimony network illustrates the most parsimonious relationships between the haplotypes and the locations at which each haplotype was found (Fig.
Red squirrels in Mid Wales were previously known to have four different genetic markers, or haplotypes.
This could potentially be the squirrel with the new haplotype.
For a subset of samples (n = 54) that yielded similar or closely related haplotypes, we performed genotyping for 4 additional polymorphic markers (3 microsatellite loci MS10, MS16, and Pv3.27, and the polymorphic F3 domain of PvMSP1), which are hereafter referred to as additional markers, as previously described (15).
Our results indicate no increase in luciferase activity with haplotypes containing rs5275 C, except for pAAGC (haplotype *2) in relation to pAAGT (haplotype *1) in MCF-7 cells.
MAPT H1/H1 haplotype patients had a mean PDCRS total score of 83.28 at 0 months which was better than other haplotypes 73.14 (P value = 0.26).
Mixed resolution HLA typing data with multiple allele codes (https://hml.nmdp.org/MacUI) were analyzed using a robust Hapl-o-Mat [38] package to compute allele and haplotype frequencies through the EM algorithm.
