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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
