Genome-wide scans for recent positive selection in humans have yielded insight into the mechanisms underlying the extensive phenotypic diversity in our species, but have focused on a limited number of populations. Here, we present an analysis of recent selection in a global sample of 53 populations, using genotype data from the Human Genome Diversity-CEPH(More)
We developed Graemlin 2.0, a new multiple network aligner with (1) a new multi-stage approach to local network alignment; (2) a novel scoring function that can use arbitrary features of a multiple network alignment, such as protein deletions, protein duplications, protein mutations, and interaction losses; (3) a parameter learning algorithm that uses a(More)
The recent proliferation of protein interaction networks has motivated research into network alignment: the cross-species comparison of conserved functional modules. Previous studies have laid the foundations for such comparisons and demonstrated their power on a select set of sparse interaction networks. Recently, however, new computational techniques have(More)
We developed Graemlin 2.0, a new multiple network aligner with (1) a novel scoring function that can use arbitrary features of a multiple network alignment, such as protein deletions, protein duplications , protein mutations, and interaction losses; (2) a parameter learning algorithm that uses a training set of known network alignments to learn parameters(More)
PURPOSE Recent developments in genomics have led to expanded carrier screening panels capable of assessing hundreds of causal mutations for genetic disease. This new technology enables simultaneous measurement of carrier frequencies for many diseases. As the resultant rank-ordering of carrier frequencies impacts the design and prioritization of screening(More)
We have combined four different types of functional genomic data to create high coverage protein interaction networks for 11 microbes. Our integration algorithm naturally handles statistically dependent predictors and automatically corrects for differing noise levels and data corruption in different evidence sources. We find that many of the predictions in(More)
Mendelian disorders are individually rare but collectively common, forming a 'long tail' of genetic disease. A single highly accurate assay for this long tail would allow the scaling up of the Jewish community's successful campaign of population screening for Tay-Sachs disease to the general population, thereby improving millions of lives, greatly(More)
Progression through the Caulobacter cell cycle is driven by the master regulator CtrA, an essential two-component signaling protein that regulates the expression of nearly 100 genes. CtrA is abundant throughout the cell cycle except immediately prior to DNA replication. However, the expression of CtrA-activated genes is generally restricted to S phase. We(More)
Each year, the Pharmacogenetics Research Network (PGRN) holds an analysis workshop for the members of the PGRN to share new methodologies, study design approaches and to discuss real data applications. This event is closed to members of the PGRN, but the methods presented are relevant to others conducting pharmacogenomics research. This special report(More)
