Direct Testing for Allele-Specific Expression Differences Between Conditions

Allelic imbalance (AI) indicates the presence of functional variation in cis regulatory regions. Detecting cis regulatory differences using AI is widespread, yet there is no formal statistical methodology that tests whether AI differs between conditions. Here we present a novel model and formally test differences in AI across conditions using Bayesian credible intervals. The approach tests AI by environment (GxE) interactions and can be used to test AI between environments, genotypes, sex, and any other condition. We incorporate bias into the modeling process. Bias is allowed to vary between conditions, making the formulation of the model general. As gene expression affects power for det[...] Read more

Kartläggning av mikroorganismer hos pingviner

SLU-forskarna Juliette Hayer och Maja Malmberg var i slutet av 2015 på ett forskarutbyte i Punta Arenas i södra Chile. Tillsammans med forskare på Instituto Antártico Chileno (INACH) startade de ett projekt med syfte att kartlägga Magellanpingvinernas (Spheniscus magellanicus) mikroorganismer. Framför allt med fokus på potentiellt ännu okända virus. Under sin vistelse i Punta Arenas besökt[...] Read more
