Local Adaptation Interacts with Expansion Load during Range Expansion: Maladaptation Reduces Expansion Load
TLDR
Results from spatially explicit simulations indicate that the presence of an environmental gradient during range expansion reduces expansion load; conversely, increasing expansion load allows only locally adapted populations to persist at the range edge. Expand
Detecting population growth, selection and inherited fertility from haplotypic data in humans.
TLDR
A method is developed that uses two kinds of genetic data to perform a joint estimation of the age of the mutation and the minimum growth rate that is compatible with its present frequency, which provides a useful estimate of population growth rate. Expand
Origin and spread of the 1278insTATC mutation causing Tay-Sachs disease in Ashkenazi Jews: genetic drift as a robust and parsimonious hypothesis
TLDR
The founder effect in a rapidly expanding population arising from a bottleneck provides a robust parsimonious hypothesis explaining the spread of 1278insTATC-linked TSD in AJ individuals. Expand
Recent origin and spread of a common Lithuanian mutation, G197del LDLR, causing familial hypercholesterolemia: positive selection is not always necessary to account for disease incidence among Ashkenazi Jews.
TLDR
The founder effect in a rapidly expanding population from a limited number of families remains a simple, parsimonious hypothesis explaining the spread of G197del-LDLR-linked FH in AJ individuals. Expand
The effective family size of immigrant founders predicts their long-term demographic outcome: from Québec settlers to their 20th-century descendants
TLDR
The effective family size of immigrant founders predicts their long-term demographic outcome, and parents with high EFS left plentiful married progeny, putting EFS as the most important variable determining the parental demographic success throughout time for generations ahead. Expand
High Rates of Three Common GJB2 Mutations c.516G>C, c.-23+1G>A, c.235delC in Deaf Patients from Southern Siberia Are Due to the Founder Effect
TLDR
The data obtained in this study support a crucial role of the founder effect in the high prevalence of GJB2 mutations c.235delC in indigenous populations of Southern Siberia. Expand
Novel CYP4F22 mutations associated with autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis (ARCI). Study of the CYP4F22 c.1303C>T founder mutation
TLDR
The present study reports five CYP4F22 mutations, two of them novel, increasing the number of CYP3C>T mutations currently listed, and suggests that the recurrent c.1303C>.T change has a founder effect in Spanish population and c. Expand
Biogeographical origin and timing of the founder ichthyosis TGM1 c.1187G > A mutation in an isolated Ecuadorian population
TLDR
Analysis of patterns of genetic variation around the TGM1 mutation in Ecuadorian patients and population matched controls allowed us to infer a most likely European origin of a few Ecuadorian haplotypes carrying this mutation, and an exponential population growth starting ~20 generations, compatible with a recent founder effect occurring in Manabí. Expand
Novel and Recurrent PNPLA1 Mutations in Spanish Patients with Autosomal Recessive Congenital Ichthyosis; Evidence of a Founder Effect.
TLDR
The spectrum of the PNPLA1 disease, which causes variants and demonstrates that the c.417_418delinsTC mutation has founder effects in the Spanish population, is expanded. Expand
Estimating the age of the p.Cys433Arg variant in the MYOC gene in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma
TLDR
The aim of this study was to estimate the age of the Cys433Arg variant by comparing the genotypes of individuals affected and not affected by primary open angle glaucoma juvenile onset by using data from 35 JOAG-affected individuals from three families, 16 unrelated patients with the MYOC p.Cys433 Arg variant.

Haplotype and phenotype analysis of nine recurrent BRCA2 mutations in 111 families: results of an international study.
TLDR
A haplotype of 10 polymorphic short tandem-repeat (STR) markers flanking the BRCA2 locus is constructed, in a set of 111 breast or breast/ovarian cancer families selected for having one of nine recurrent BRCa2 mutations. Expand
Allelic disequilibrium and allele frequency distribution as a function of social and demographic history.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the alleles associated with a recessive disease phenotype are expected to exist in a population in very variable frequencies: there is no need to postulate positive selection with respect to the more common disease-associated alleles for such entities as phenylketonuria or cystic fibrosis. Expand
Frequency of recurrent BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations in Ashkenazi Jewish breast cancer families
Two founding mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 are responsible for a large proportion of Jewish families with the breast-ovarian cancer syndrome.
Linkage disequilibrium analysis in young populations: pseudo-vitamin D-deficiency rickets and the founder effect in French Canadians.
TLDR
Analysis of a complex haplotype in linkage disequilibrium with the disease discriminated among distinct founder effects in French Canadian populations in Acadia and in Charlevoix-Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean (Ch-SLSJ), as well as an earlier one in precolonial Europe. Expand
Genetic analysis of idiopathic torsion dystonia in Ashkenazi Jews and their recent descent from a small founder population
TLDR
The recent origin of this dominant mutation and its current high frequency suggest that the Ashkenazi population descends from a limited group of founders, and emphasize the importance of genetic drift in determining disease allele frequencies in this population. Expand
ITD in Ashkenazi Jews — genetic drift or selection?
Jewish diseases and origins
Likelihood methods for locating disease genes in nonequilibrium populations.
TLDR
A Poisson branching process is invoked for the initial growth phase of the disease, and the likelihood for the recombination fraction between marker and disease loci is estimated, on the basis of simulated disease populations. Expand
Localization of the gene for familial dysautonomia on chromosome 9 and definition of DNA markers for genetic diagnosis
TLDR
The DYS gene is mapped to chromosome 9q31–q33 by linkage with ten DMA markers in 26 families and this localization will permit prenatal diagnosis of DYS in affected families and aid the isolation of the disease gene. Expand
