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.

  • Sequence divergence (uncorrected "p") is 4-6% among members of the Artemisia -clade, 4-10% among members of Subtribe Artemisiinae, and 7-17% between Subtribe Artemisiinae and the outgroup species from other Anthemideae subtribes.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Phylogenic analyses of both DNA and amino acid sequences were performed using PAUP* [ 23 ] . In this study Cpn 0186 (IncA), and four additional candidate inclusion membrane proteins, Cpn 0284, Cpn 0285, Cpn 0829 and Cpn 0830, were selected as members of an outgroup for analysis.
