Advances in marker technology have made a dense marker map a reality. If each marker is considered separately, and separate tests for association with a disease gene are performed, then multiple testing becomes an issue. A common solution uses a Bonferroni correction to account for multiple tests performed. However, with dense marker maps, neighboring(More)
Why review statistical tests of neutrality at a time when pan-selectionists and pan-neutralists alike seem to have been replaced by weak selectionists? First, we still don't actually know how variation is maintained at the molecular level; and second, tests of neutrality have a utility for evolutionary biologists beyond the neutralist/selectionist debate.(More)
The Greenland Sea is one of a few sites in the world ocean where convection to great depths occurs-a process that forms some of the densest waters in the ocean. But the role of deep convective eddies, which result from surface cooling and mixing across density surfaces followed by geostrophic adjustment, has not been fully taken into account in the(More)
In 2002, the construction industry had the undesirable distinction of having two of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, with fatalities among structural steel workers at 58.2 fatalities per 100,000 workers (4 highest rate) and construction laborers experiencing fatalities at the rate of 27.7 fatalities per 100,000 workers (9 highest rate).(More)
Flow through and around nets is computed using computational fluid dynamics implemented using FLUENT software. The presented study is focused on net panels with different angle of attack, but once the approach is validated on net panels, it should be applicable to 3D aquaculture net-pens. The approach is to model the net as a thin sheet of porous material(More)
A permutation test is proposed for assessing affection status models. The test uses marker data from regions with prior evidence of linkage to susceptibility genes, and three different test statistics are examined. We applied the test to the GAW10 data and found no evidence on chromosome 18 to reject the affection status model that groups individuals(More)
