... SNPs; haplotypes; and CNVs. If the human genome is viewed as a 3-billion-letter book of life, then SNPs represent single-letter spelling changes, haplotype variations equate to word changes, and CNVs are wholesale deletions or duplications of full pages. The patterns revealed by the new study support ...

DNA analysis reveals rapid population shift among Pleistocene cave bears

... changes). The findings indicated that while four sequence types (known as haplotypes) corresponded to bears 28,000 to 38,000 years old, a fifth DNA haplotype was found only in bears that were 28,000 years old or younger. These data suggested that what had been a stable, long-established cave bear ...

"We chose samples across the entire range of rice and looked for DNA sequences that were shared by both wild ...

New analysis shows three human migrations out of Africa

... based on an examination of specific haplotypes, clusters of genes that are inherited as a unit. In 2002, Templeton analyzed ten different haplotype trees and performed phylogeographic analyses that reconstructed the history of the species through space and time. Three years later, he had 25 ...
