A novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees

Description: In this paper, the authors discuss a novel statistical method for rare-variant association studies in general pedigrees for quantitative traits. This method uses a retrospective view that treats the traits as fixed and the genotypes as random, which accounts for complex and undefined ascertainment of families.

Sturm bounds for Siegel modular forms

Description: This article establishes Sturm bounds for degree g Siegel modular forms modulo a prime p, which are vital for explicit computations. This includes an inductive proof that exploits Fourier-Jacobi expansions of Siegel modular forms and properties of specializations of Jacobi forms to torsion points.

Stochastics and thermodynamics for equilibrium measures of holomorphic endomorphisms on complex projective spaces

Description: This article proves that the dynamical system (f,μφ) enjoys exponential decay of correlations of Hölder continuous observables as well as the Central Limit Theorem and the Law of Iterated Logarithm for the class of these variables that, in addition, satisfy a natural co-boundary condition. This article also shows that the topological pressure function t ↦ P(tφ) is real-analytic throughout the open set of all parameters t for which the potentials tφ have pressure gaps.

Phylogenetic analysis of eukaryotic NEET proteins uncovers a link between a key gene duplication event and the evolution of vertebrates

Description: This article describes the use of three members of the human NEET protein family (CISD1, mitoNEET; CISD2, NAF-1 or Miner 1; and CISD3, Miner2) as guides to conduct a phylogenetic analysis of eukaryotic NEET proteins and their evolution.

Reactive oxygen species, abiotic stress and stress combination

Description: This article reviews recent studies on the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in abiotic stress in plants, and propose that different abiotic stresses, such as drought, heat, salinity and high light, result in different ROS signatures that determine the specificity of the acclimation response and help tailor it to the exact stress the plant encounters.

Reduced Heart Rate and Cardiac Output Differentially Affect Angiogenesis, Growth, and Development in Early Chicken Embryos (Gallus domesticus)

Description: This article demonstrates for the first time that different processes in the ontogeny of the early vertebrate embryo (i.e., hypertrophic growth vs. development) have differential sensitivities to altered convective blood flow.
