We integrated a Bayesian multi-trait approach and a Bayesian networks for the analysis of 10 correlated traits of cardiac structure and function measured across 3387 individuals with whole exome sequence data. Wu, C., Delano, D. L., Mitro, N., Su, S. V., Janes, J., McClurg, P., Batalov, S., Welch, G. L., Zhang, J., Orth, A. P., Walker, J. R., Glynne, R. J., Cooke, M. P., Takahashi, J.

True and estimated (posterior means) cQTL effects under the MD1 version of the HB multi-trait cQTL model with 10% markers and 30% expressions coded as missing and different values of Bernoulli parameter sl. The accuracy ranged from 0 to 0.47 before the addition of the NIR/NMR data, while after these data were added, it ranged from 0 to 0.69. With recent advances in computer intensive sampling-based methods such as Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation techniques (Gilks et al., 1996), the computational hurdles that have long prevented the broad application of HB modeling are no longer an issue; Bayesian models of arbitrary complexity are now being developed and implemented across a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. Table 4. Note that the number of degrees of freedom is set to be the largest possible, i.e., the rank of S, to convey a lack of prior information. Estimating polygenic effects using markers of the entire genome. The shaded cells indicate false positives or false negatives. Even though this theory holds value, it has its limitations. Heredity 103, 223–237. Multi‐trait analyses We used between‐species PCA (Dodélec & Chessel 1991) on the five traits set measured at the individual level. Ellipses (Model levels II and III) refer to the unknown random variables, which are sampled. For the genetic variances, we assume that p(σβ2)=∏k=1NT∏j=1Npp(σβjM2)p(σβjE2)p(σβjME2), and impose InvGa(1, 1) priors independently on the variance parameters σβjl2 for j = 1, …, Np. Predicting species responses to climate change requires tracking the variation in individual performance following exposure to warming conditions. True and estimated (posterior means) cQTL effects in the analysis of Trait 1 using the MD1 version of the HB single-trait cQTL model with (A) 10% markers and 10% expressions coded as missing and (B) 10% markers and 30% expressions coded as missing, and for sl = 0.09. Life Sci. We integrated Bayesian multi-trait approach and Bayesian networks for the analysis of 10 correlated traits of cardiac structure and function measured for 3387 individuals with whole exome sequence data. For both the multi-trait and single-trait approaches, we considered two different model specifications depending on the way the missing expression data were modeled namely, MD1 (shown in Figure 1) where Ei,j∼N(IjμjAjGi,j,σ02), and MD2 where Ei,j∼N(0,σ02). An eQTL is said to be cis- or trans-acting (Brem et al., 2002), depending on its location with regard to the chromosomal position of its target gene (i.e., the gene whose expression it regulates). In single-trait cQTL analyses, the results were comparable across the three traits. True and estimated (posterior means) cQTL effects in the analysis of Trait 1 using the MD2 version of the HB single-trait cQTL model with (A) 10% markers and 10% expressions coded as missing and (B) 10% markers and 30% missing expressions coded as missing, and for Bernoulli parameter sl = 0.09. Particularly survival, somatic cell count Because of its conceptual nature, it is worth emphasizing that practical and scalable implementations of the method are beyond the scope of this paper. doi:10.1371/journal.pgen.1000587. 62, 1779–1783. Making BUGS open. While using single-trait based approaches did not find any significant genetic variant, applying the integrative Bayesian multi-trait approach, we identified 3 novel variants located in genes, RGS3, CHD3, and MRPL38 with significant impact on the cardiac traits such as left ventricular volume index, parasternal long axis interventricular septum thickness, and mean left ventricular wall thickness.

Extended Bayesian LASSO for multiple quantitative trait loci mapping and unobserved phenotype prediction. A procedure for identifying QTL locations using forward selection and bootstrapping is proposed. In psychology, trait theory (also called dispositional theory) is an approach to the study of human personality.Trait theorists are primarily interested in the measurement of traits, which can be defined as habitual patterns of behavior, thought, and emotion. We integrated Bayesian multi-trait approach and Bayesian networks for the analysis of 10 correlated traits of cardiac structure and function measured for 3387 individuals with whole exome sequence data. It has been increasingly argued that ecological restoration should focus more on targeting ecosystem services than on species composition of reference ecosystems. The eQTL model parameter σ02 is the expression variance, Iμ is a vector of indicators, μ is the vector of eQTL effect sizes, and A comprises the assignment variables which, as in Sillanpää and Noykova (2008), define the expression eQTL regulatory effects of the marker-expression pairs. In single-trait cQTL analysis too, the model performed better under the MD1 specification when sl was low (0.0033 and 0.013). The focus of DIVERSIFOOD is on diversification, which needs to be considered at three levels: breeding/genetic diversity in crops farming system food system To be effective, a multi-actor approach will need to be tailor made DESCRIZIONE: Il progetto ha come obiettivo quello di migliorare la qualità della frutta fresca prodotta in Calabria, riducendo la perdita di qualità durante la catena di approvvigionamento e favorendone così l’export. The convergence of the MCMC was assessed through visual inspection of trace plots. Between PCA is close to a classical PCA; it uses the correlation matrix based on species’ means (weighted by their sample size). al.

By 1992, it had been cited more than 2,000 times by other authors, and a 2005 search of the Social Sciences … The multi-trait model outperformed its single-trait counterpart in identifying cQTLs, with a consistently lower false discovery rate. (2007). Tables 2–5 give the true cQTL effects ηj,kl and their estimated values as posterior means η̄j,kl under the two specifications (MD1 and MD2) of the HB multi-trait cQTL model for different missing value scenarios and different values of the prior inclusion probability sl. Under both MD1 and MD2 specifications, the priors on the inclusion indicators, Ik,jl|sl, for the cQTL effects were defined as Ik,jl|sl∼Bern(sl), and different pre-specified values were used for prior inclusion probability sl, including sl = 0.013 = 1/(3 × 25), which assumes fewer non-zero indicator elements (i.e., a sparser model) than the true simulated value 0.08, and the slightly larger value sl = 0.09. To simulate data with large heritabilities and correlated cQTL residuals, we set the elements of the residual covariance matrix as S=154130112133113117.

Xu, S. (2003). (2006). The multi-trait approach did result in regression coefficients (slopes) of DTD on GEBV in . This tendency owes much to the now established view (e.g., Schadt et al., 2005; Kendziorski et al., 2006; Lee et al., 2009; Mackay, 2009) that gene expression profiles usually act as intermediate phenotypes between genetic polymorphism and the phenotypic traits of interest. We adopted a multi-trait approach to obtain a deeper understanding of the mechanisms behind allopatric divergence in the Amazonian frog, Allobates femoralis.

The multitrait-multimethod ( MTMM) matrix is an approach to examining construct validity developed by Campbell and Fiske (1959). Multi-actor approaches Participation A good framework with clear (and innovative) concepts and methodologies is needed to make the whole project effective. Mutshinda et al. This is in contrast to single trait analyses that often report the effect of different SNPs on each trait while neglecting the pattern of effects of the QTL across traits. 81, 304–320. The input data involve molecular markers, gene expressions, and a set of clinical phenotypic traits of interests from each sampled individual. Integrating genetic and gene expression data: application to cardiovascular and metabolic trait in mice. As a result of running the multi-trait model, genetic correlations between North America and Australia were estimated for all traits considered. (2018).It can also be used as a tool to meta-analyze GWAS results. The multi-trait-multi-method (MTMM) approach (Campbell & Fiske, 1959) is the most important technique for dividing and clarifying the different sources of shared variance. Funct. However, the point of cQTL analysis is variable selection rather than estimation, meaning that the accurate estimation of the effects is not essential. Materials and methods Plant material, phenotypic and molecular data The data used correspond to an F 2 maize reference population from CIMMYT maize drought breeding Because of the high computational burden of MCMC sampling, we chose a smaller subset from the complete simulated marker and expression data.

Sillanpää and Noykova (2008) developed a HB model for single-trait cQTL analysis in inbred line cross-data using molecular markers, gene expressions, and marker-gene expression pairs. Heredity 101, 271–284. (2) 10% of marker genotypes Gi,j and 30% of gene expressions Ei,j coded as missing. The intermediate eQTL model can provide valuable insights into gene networks and molecular mechanisms linking genes to the clinical traits of interest. A commonly used approach in multi-trait genomic selection is index selection, which assigns weights to different traits relative to their economic importance. PLoS Genet. One way out is to consider as cis-acting all eQTLs lying within a specific distance of their target genes, and view the ones that are far removed from their target genes as trans-acting (e.g., Brem et al., 2002; Wittkopp, 2005). Data analyses under the multi-trait and single-trait cQTL models. Genetical genomics in humans and model organisms. (2006). According the Bayes theorem p(θ | D) ∝ p(D,θ) = p(D | θ)p(θ), which is equivalent to p(θc, θe | EO, GO, y) ∝ p(I, β, a, S, θe, Eo, Go, y). The trait approach to leadership assumes that all great leaders are born with specific skills and personality traits. We are grateful to two anonymous referees for their constructive comments. An integrated approach based on direct measurements of leaf functional multi-traits and on estimation of the plant mitigation potential was used for predicting the species-specific impact on air quality of 29 species, including trees and shrubs, commonly present in the urban context. For each trait k, we assume that βj,kl|σβjl2∼N(0,σβjl2), for j = 1, …, Np and l ∈ {M, E, ME}. The coefficients η=I∙β in the cQTL regression model (2) are formed on Model level III, whereas models for the genetic effects β and the eQTL effect sizes μ appear on level II. Heredity 107, 405–412. (1) The high model dimensionality implied by the huge number of parameters undermines the effectiveness of standard statistical methods. As in Sillanpää and Noykova (2008), we assume each expression to be regulated by a single marker, without excluding the possibility for a marker to simultaneously regulate two or more expressions. 8, 23. 1996, 1997) and another part by a single-trait multi-environment approach (Vargas et al. The trait theory suggests that individual personalities are composed of these broad dispositions. a multi-trait approach). (2008). Borevitz, J. O., Liang, D., Plouffe, D., Chang, H. S., Zhu, T., Weigel, D., Berry, C. C., Winzeler, E., and Chory, J. For the first trait we chose one marker η24,1M, and one expression η14,1E components to be non-zero, for the second trait, one marker η24,2M, and one mixed genotype × expression interaction η4,2ME, and for the third trait, one marker η24,3M, and one expression η18,3E components (Table 1). Often considerable amount of missing marker and expression data may occur at random positions in the data matrix with higher missing rate for expressions than for marker genotypes. The box given in bold indicates the multi-trait model structure. We first analyzed the simulated data using our multi-trait model, with sl set to 0.013 and 0.09, and subsequently fitted the single-trait cQTL model of Sillanpää and Noykova (2008) to each trait separately, with sl set to 0.0033, 0.013, and 0.09. How many and which species to plant? The 4 separate traits map the QTL to slightly different positions (range: 47,732–48,877 kb). Nonetheless, the hierarchical Bayesian (HB) modeling approach, in combination with modern computational tools such as Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation techniques, provides much versatility for cQTL analysis. Incorporating NIR and NMR phenotypes in the multi-trait approach increased the accuracy of genomic prediction for most quality traits. Brem, R. B., Yvert, G., Clinton, R., and Kruglyak, L. (2002). The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. We computed FRic and FR for each simulated restoration community using the traits specific leaf area, maximum plant height and seed mass. A potential explanation for this propensity to false discovery is the lack of constraint in the missing data model Ei,j∼N(0,σ02) under MD2. That is, p(β|σβ2)=∏k=1NT∏j=1Npp(βj,kM|σβjM2)p(βj,kE|σβjE2)p(βj,kME|σβjME2). For the third term, we assume conditional independence. A multi-locus approach provides more power for identifying the few potentially relevant loci to the phenotype-to-genotype association in both QTL and eQTL analyses. 5, e1000587.

This can be further factorized (according to the conditional independence assumptions made) to the form, The likelihood function associated with the multi-trait cQTL model (2) is given by. Unlike many other theories of personality, such as psychoanalytic or humanistic theories , the trait approach to personality is focused on differences between individuals.

The solid arrows illustrate hierarchical dependencies, and the dotted arrows show deterministic dependences. It also helps enhance parameter estimation by “borrowing strength” from data used to estimate related quantities. Personality - Personality - Trait theories: Contemporary personality studies are generally empirical and based on experiments. cQTL analysis poses many problems and challenges, four of which are pointed out below. Trans. A multi-trait approach reveals the structure and the relative importance of intra- versus interspecific variability Front. Moreover, a multi-trait model provides a framework for investigating a number of biologically interesting hypotheses involving multiple traits, such as pleiotropy.

Bayesian shrinkage analysis of QTLs under shape-adaptive shrinkage priors, and accurate re-estimation of genetic effects. Moreover, the FDR proved to increase with the proportion of missing data. In the latter case, the involved marker needs to be represented twice or as many times as required, the distance between its different copies being roughly zero. In this paper we extend the HB cQTL model for inbred line crosses proposed by Sillanpää and Noykova to a multi-trait setting. We also reduced the population size from N = 200 to N = 100 individuals, and the number of marker-gene pairs from Np = 102 to Np = 25 so that the markers spanned only the first chromosome. The reported results are based on 100,000 MCMC iterations, the first 10,000 of which were discarded as burn-in. Drake, T. A., Schadt, E. E., and Lusis, A. J. Q&A: genetic analysis of quantitative traits. The multi-trait HB cQTL model showed over its single-trait counterpart an increased power of identifying cQTLs with a lower rate of false positives. Hierarchical Bayesian (HB) modeling or Bayesian multilevel modeling (Gelman et al., 2003) provides a convenient approach for combining information from various data sources and accommodating uncertainty at different levels. (2002) used 10 kb as the threshold distance for distinguishing between cis- and trans-regulatory effects. In what follows, we provide a fairly detailed account of the results concerning the analysis based on simulated data under uncorrelated cQTL residuals, and only succinctly comment on the ability of the multi-trait model to accommodate the covariance structure of cQTL residuals. A detailed description of each hierarchical level is given below. Days to flower (Trait 1) and days to maturity (Trait 2) grown in Puerto Rico in 2016. Consequently, and for the first time, the present study uses the MTMM approach to However, only a few of them may be classified as multi-trait and multi-locus, i.e. On average, the standard deviations σ^Yk of the simulated cQTL data over the N = 100 individuals for Trait 1, Trait 2, and Trait 3 were 13.62, 12.92, and 12.50, respectively, implying a joint heritability h2 ≈ (0.25, 0.26, 0.18)T, where hk2=(σ^Yk2-σSk2)∕σ^Yk2, k=1,2,3 and σSk2=Skk. Finally, cQTL identification was more effective under the MD1 specification. Biometrics 62, 19–27. de Koning, D. J., and Haley, C. S. (2005). While using single-trait based approaches did not find any significant genetic variant, applying the integrative Bayesian multi-trait approach, we identified 3 novel variants located in genes, RGS3, CHD3, and MRPL38 with significant impact on the cardiac traits such as left ventricular volume index, parasternal long axis interventricular septum thickness, and mean left ventricular wall thickness. This stands in contrast to multi-trait approaches that rely on access to individual-level data in the discovery data sets because they make use of a method from animal breeding in which the total genetic effect (‘breeding value’) of each individual in a discovery data set is estimated from the best linear unbiased predictor in a multi-trait random-effects model that can be used for individual-level … In 1959, Donald T. Campbell and Donald W. Fiske published an article in the Psychological Bulletin that, approximately 30 years later, would become the most cited article in the history of the social sciences. All rights reserved. The genomic loci associated with the variation in gene transcript levels, known as expression quantitative trait loci (eQTLs), can be identified through a standard quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping framework, with transcript levels acting as surrogate for classical quantitative traits (Jansen and Nap, 2001; Schadt et al., 2003; Cheung et al., 2005; Drake et al., 2006; Breitling et al., 2008).
