Genome-wide local ancestry and evidence for mitonuclear coadaptation in African hybrid cattle populations (Bos taurus/indicus)

The phenotypic diversity of African cattle reflects adaptation to a wide range of agroecological conditions, human-mediated selection preferences, and complex patterns of admixture between the humpless Bos taurus (taurine) and humped Bos indicus …

Static and dynamic methods in social network analysis reveal the association patterns of desert-dwelling giraffe

Patterns of association in animal societies vary through space and time. Understanding such variation is key to predicting inter- and intra-population variation across factors as diverse as gene flow, disease transmission, and resilience to climate …

Computational modelling of Chromosomally Clustering Protein Domains In Bacteria

Background: In bacteria, genes with related functions - such as those involved in the metabolism of the same compound or in infection processes - are often physically close on the genome and form groups called clusters. The enrichment of such …

Fine-scale Inference of Ancestry Segments without Prior Knowledge of Admixing Groups

We present an algorithm for inferring ancestry segments and characterizing admixture events, which involve an arbitrary number of genetically differentiated groups coming together. This allows inference of the demographic history of the species, …

Statistical challenges in estimating past climate changes

Latent Space Models for Multiview Network Data

Social relationships consist of interactions along multiple dimensions. In social networks, this means that individuals form multiple types of relationships with the same person (e.g., an individual will not trust all of his/her acquaintances). …

Online Trans-dimensional von Mises-Fisher Mixture Models for User Profiles

The proliferation of online communities has attracted much attention to modelling user behaviour in terms of social interaction, language adoption and contribution activity. Nevertheless, when applied to large-scale and cross-platform behavioural …

The influence of network structures of Wikipedia discussion pages on the efficiency of WikiProjects

As a platform for discussion and communication, talk pages play an essential role in Wikipedia to facilitate coordination, sharing of information and knowledge resources among Wikipedians. In this work we explore the influence of network structures …

Role analysis in networks using mixtures of exponential random graph models

This article introduces a novel and flexible framework for investigating the roles of actors within a network. Particular interest is in roles as defined by local network connectivity patterns, identified using the ego-networks extracted from the …

Bayesian inference for palaeoclimate with time uncertainty and stochastic volatility
