Both regular the coalescent and the shattered coalescent which allows that multiple mutations may have occurred in the founding event, and that the disease may occasionally be triggered by environmental factors have been put to work in understanding disease genes [1]. Retrieved from ” https: Molecular Biology and Evolution 31 5: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

Tiina Maria is currently reading it Feb 10, The theory was initially developed by Kingman in 3 thekry published in probability theory journals, which outline the foundation of coalescent theory as a suite of probability models.

Sarah marked it as to-read Sep 11, These traits may arise due to many small mutations, which together have a severe and deleterious effect on the health of the individual [2].

The model can be used to produce many theoretical genealogies, and then compare observed calescent to these simulations to test assumptions about the demographic history of a population.


I will say I did walk away from the book definitely knowing more than I went into it. Population genetic throry could have a major influence on this variation: Paperbackpages.

The latter are polygenic diseases, controlled by multiple genes that may occur on different chromosomes, but diseases that are precipitated by a single abnormality are relatively simple to pinpoint and trace — although not so simple that this has been achieved for all diseases.
