A mathematical approach to multiple genetic relationships

, : A mathematical approach to multiple genetic relationships. Theoretical Population Biology 21(3): 379-393

A fundamental concept in the treatment of genetic relationships is that of gene identity which 1st was introduced by Cotterman (1940). Based on this notion several measures of relationship evolved such as the inbreeding coefficient, the coefficient of kinship and the identity coefficients; by using these quantities joint and conditional phenotype probabilities could be derived. A general mathematical treatment of genetic relationships is attempted. Identity states are defined for any number of individuals, a method is given for the calculation of the corresponding identity coefficients by means of generalized coefficients of kinship, and applications [for humans] are emphasized.

To investigate the relationship among circulating cytokines, inflammation in the liver, and kind of response to interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) in hepatitis C, we studied 63 consecutive patients (38 male, 25 female), treated with IFN for up to 1 year...

A method for preparing (103)Pd brachytherapy seeds is reported. The key of the method was to deposit (103)Pd onto carbon bars by electroless plating so as to prepare source cores. After each carbon bar with (103)Pd was sealed in a titanium capsule...
