Example sentences for: outgroup

How can you use “outgroup” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • A second alignment was done using the full-length sequences for all Arabidopsis and other known full-length plant myosins with a human heavy-chain myosin (Hs Ib) as an outgroup.

  • The motor domains of the Arabidopsis kinesins and 113 kinesins from animals and yeast with the myosin motor domain of ScMMY1 as an outgroup were aligned using the Clustal method in the DNA STAR program MEGALIGN.

  • They computed a test statistic t(A,B,x) for each sequence x as the difference of log-likelihood ratio dissimilarity measures, D ( A , x ) = -2logλ( A , x ), for two data sets, a control set A and an outgroup B , such that t(A,B,x) = D(A,x) - D(B,x) . A negative value for t indicates that the sequence more closely resembles words from A ; conversely, a positive value indicates a likely contaminant related to B . (Dissimilarity is conceptually related to distance.

  • A comparison of the evolutionary distances between each of the paralogs and the ortholog used as an outgroup showed that, of a total of 101 analyzed pairs, only five evolve at significantly ( p < 0.05) different rate.

  • Using ScSMY1, a highly divergent kinesin [ 25], as an outgroup, the motor domain sequences of the 61 Arabidopsis kinesins and 113 kinesins from other organisms were analyzed for phylogenetic relationships using PAUP [ 44] (Figures 3and 4).
