To study the isonymy structure of France as related to local language variations, the surname distributions of 6.03 million telephone users registered for the year 2002 were analysed in the 21 conterminous regions, their 94 departments and in 809 towns of the Country. For regions and departments the differences among local dialects were quantified according(More)
Isolation by distance in Switzerland was detected comparing the surname distributions between Cantons. The decay of isonymy with geographic distance between Cantons was consistent with Malecot's exponential decay of kinship. Lasker's distance was defined as the negative value of the logarithm of isonymy between localities, and it was found that it is(More)
We studied the frequency distribution of 1,048,576 oligonucleotides 10 bp long in a sample of 1.072 x 10(6) bases of genes from non-mammalian vertebrates, made of 322 sequences extracted from EMBL(R) 29.0, with the aim of detecting transcription control signals. Among all decamers, 2097 (0.2%) had a frequency 10 times higher than the mean and were subjected(More)
In this work, we investigated surname distribution in 4,348,021 Honduran electors with the aim of detecting population structure through the study of isonymy in three administrative levels: the whole nation, the 18 departments, and the 298 municipalities. For each administrative level, we studied the surname effective number, α, the total inbreeding, FIT ,(More)
In order to describe the isonymic structure of Albania, the distribution of 3,068,447 surnames was studied in the 12 prefectures and their administrative subdivisions: the 36 districts and 321 communes. The number of different surnames found was 37,184. Effective surname number for the entire country was 1327, the average for prefectures was 653.3 ± 84.3,(More)
We studied the frequency distribution of 1,048,576 oligonucleotides 10 bp long in a sample of 1.961 Mbase of genes from plants, made of 635 sequences extracted from GenBank 71.0, with the aim of detecting transcription control signals. Among all decamers, 3255, or 0.3%, had a frequency 10 times higher than the mean and were subjected to further statistical(More)
In human populations various flexible, labile and interdependent structures (genetic, demographic, socioeconomic) co-exist, each of which can be organized in an hierarchical order corresponding to administrative entities. The relationship between consanguinity, as estimated by random isonymy (F ST), and socioeconomic conditions was analysed at different(More)
Acknowledgements: The authors would like to thank the electoral authorities of Argentina and Bolivia, for the access to surnames database. Abstract When migrating, people carry their cultural and genetic history, changing both the transmitting and the receiving populations. This phenomenon changes the structure of the population of a country. The question(More)
Population isolates are an important tool in identifying and mapping genes of Mendelian diseases and complex traits. The geographical identification of isolates represents a priority from a genetic and health care standpoint. The purpose of this study is to analyze the spatial distribution of consanguinity by random isonymy (F ST) in Argentina and its(More)
The coefficient of relationship by isonymy Ri is a good indicator of similarities between and within populations by means of identity of surnames. In this study we present the results of an analysis of Ri obtained using two surnames for each person in two small Venezuelan populations of African origin: Birongo and La Sabana. The analyses of six Ri values(More)
