A Model of Genetic Variation in Human Social Network

submitted by: dougramsey
Social networks influence the evolution of cooperation and they exhibit strikingly systematic patterns across a wide range of human contexts. Both of these facts suggest that variation in the topological attributes of human social networks might have a genetic basis. While genetic variation accounts for a significant portion of the variation in many complex social behaviors, the heritability of egocentric social network attributes is unknown. Here we show that three of these attributes...

Comparative Metagenomics

submitted by: dougramsey
Each metagenome study of a complex habitat is accompanied by lots of unknowns as so far the depth of sequencing is usually insufficient to reveal the entire microbial community of an ecosystem. The probably easiest way of extracting meaningful information is the comparison with existing data, analogous to that of genome comparisons. However, the complexity within the analysis chain of a single metagenome annotation is topped by the difficulties that the integration of heterogeneously...
