  1. 1. Genome-wide association studies using machine learning

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Mohammad Mshaleh; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Genom-Wide Association Study (GWAS) is a field that studies the genomics of organisms. GWAS focuses on what is called single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP). In GWAS,the data of the SNPs is usually massive, which requires modern statistical analysis methods to investigate the relationship between those SNPs and a phenotype. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic mapping on local Swedish chicken breeds

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Breeding and Genetics

    Author : Samrawit Tsehay Gebeyehu; [2021]
    Keywords : chicken; genetic diversity; GWAS; plumage color; SNP; Swedish chicken breed;

    Abstract : Today, genetic studies are gaining popularity around the world, especially in the developed world. The study of genetic diversity is the basis for genetic protection and future breed improvement. READ MORE

  3. 3. Screening of early root growth characteristics in seedlings of Nordic spring barley : utilization of hydroponics and GWAS for identification of QTLs and candidate genes for root traits

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Plant Breeding

    Author : Karl-Johan Fabo; [2021]
    Keywords : spring barley; plant breeding; root growth; early vigor; seminor roots; GWAS; QTL; quantitative traits; quantitative genetics; marker-assisted breeding; hydroponics;

    Abstract : In the Nordic countries, the cultivation of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) has a long history, and as one of the major cereals in the world, barley is of global importance for food security. The world population is growing, which naturally will increase demands for agricultural outputs. READ MORE

  4. 4. The role of RFX-target genes in neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Abhishekapriya Ganesan; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and psychiatric disorders, for example, schizophrenia (SCZ) represent a large spectrum of disorders that manifest through cognitive and behavioural problems. ASD and SCZ are both highly heritable, and some phenotypic similarities between ASD and SCZ have sparked an interest in understanding their genetic commonalities. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neural networks for imputation of missing genotype data : An alternative to the classical statistical methods in bioinformatics

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Alfred Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : genetics; imputation; bioinformatics; neural networks; GWAS;

    Abstract : In this project, two different machine learning models were tested in an attempt at imputing missing genotype data from patients on two different panels. As the integrity of the patients had to be protected, initial training was done on data simulated from the 1000 Genomes Project. READ MORE
