Example sentences for: intraspecific

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

  • Moreover, although only a few of these 39 pairs (see Table 1 in Johnson and Cicero [2004]) had sufficient sampling to assess intraspecific variation in mtDNA sequences, these typically showed paraphyly in mtDNA haplotypes.

  • Therefore, there are still too few cases with adequate sampling of intraspecific diversity for sister species pairs to know how common paraphyly is, although a recent meta-analysis found that 17% of bird species deviated from mtDNA monophyly (Funk and Omland 2003).

  • On the basis of the findings of Pujana et al ., the GLP/LCR15 duplicon is present at multiple regions of human genomic instability [ 21 ] . In addition, the GLP/LCR15 duplicon was shown by Gilles et al . to be polymorphic in the human population - showing that these sequences have considerable intraspecific plasticity [ 18 ] . The GLP/LCR15 duplication family has expanded over the last 20 million years of primate evolution, before the divergence of the great ape lineages, resulting in a multitude of copies (estimated at 27) present at multiple sites along chromosome 15, providing the conditions required for rearrangements driven by nonallelic homologous recombination (NAHR) [ 18 19 21 27 ] . We have begun an investigation of the organization of this region within the chimpanzee lineage.

  • To avoid statistical bias due to the differences in numbers of sequences composing each category, we randomly selected 200 genes among the native genes and 200 among the transferred genes (when their number was greater than this value), for the intraspecific species analysis.

  • From these data, they conclude that most North American bird species can be discriminated via molecular diagnosis of individuals and propose a “standard sequence threshold” of ten times the mean intraspecific variation (yielding a 2.7% threshold in birds) to flag genetically divergent taxa as “provisional species.”
