Epistasis has been used to describe a number of phenomena, including the functional interaction between genes, the genetic outcome of mutations acting within the same genetic pathway, and the ...
Epistasis describes how gene interactions can affect phenotypes. Did you know that genes can mask each other's presence or combine to produce an entirely new trait? But what happens when two ...
The evolution experiment is new evidence of a genetic mechanism called positive epistasis, in which the positive effect of a variant of a gene is amplified when working in combination with other key ...

remain susceptible to another common and conceptually straightforward phenomenon that geneticists define as epistasis (i.e., a form of gene-gene interaction such that gene(s) not directly involved ...
The cross mean is the sum of the breeding values of the parents if allelic effects are only additive, but in practice, some deviation may result from dominance or epistasis. To date, only a few ...
ROCHESTER, Minnesota — An accumulation of environmental chemicals, pollutants, microbes, and particulates may be living inside each of us — acquired from the air we breathe, the food we eat ...
These observations allow us to investigate other players in this pathway and to determine epistasis and synthetic lethality with Rad52. In addition, Rad52 is a potential target for therapy in ...
pleiotropy (the effect of a single gene on multiple phenotypic traits), epistasis (gene–gene interactions), phenotypic heterogeneity, incomplete penetrance and epigenetic processes. An ...
