The isonymy structure of trilingual Belgium was studied using the surname distributions for 1,118,004 private telephone users. The users were distributed in 77 Flemish, 76 French, and 3 German speaking towns, selected on a geographic basis to form an approximately regular grid over Belgium....
We have analysed the matrilineal genetic composition of three self‐reported ethnic groups from São Tomé e Príncipe (Gulf of Guinea), an African archipelago whose settlement begun in the late fifteenth century. Sequence data from the hypervariable segments I (HVS‐I) and II (HVS‐II) were obtained...
Using the recurrence risk ratio (λ), Risch (1990b) indicated that affected pairs of distant relatives are preferable to affected sib‐pairs for linkage analysis when λ is large and the mode of inheritance is additive. By using the optimum test for affected sib‐pairs instead of the test used by...
We report on 8 Dutch patients with McArdle's disease from 6 unrelated families. Molecular analysis revealed the presence of four previously described mutations: the common R49X mutation, the IVS14+1G>A mutation and the recently reported R269X and Y84X nonsense mutations; and two new molecular...
As knowledge of the human genome continues to grow, more progress is being made towards not only identifying the genes involved in disease susceptibility but also in defining the synergistic role genes play with environmental exposures. The detection of gene‐environment interactions is important...
Linkage genome scans for complex diseases have low power with the usual sample sizes, and hence meta‐analysis of several scans for the same disease might be a promising approach. Appropriate data are now becoming accessible. Here we give an overview of the available statistical methods and...
The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) diversity of 58 individuals from Upper Egypt, more than half (34 individuals) from Gurna, whose population has an ancient cultural history, were studied by sequencing the control‐region and screening diagnostic RFLP markers.
