The most commonly used primer set for this locus thus yields a single 106 bp product (two loci copies, same size) for DNA samples from females, and a 106/112 bp doublet product (one from each locus) from males.
From the 91 prospective loci, primers were designed for the loci that had the following characteristics: 1) the repeated motif was 3 bases or more in length, 2) no interruptions occurred within the repeated segment, and 3) at least 20 unambiguously sequenced base pairs were on both sides of the repeated motif, enabling primer design.
This section is concerned with searching for loci of points in plane.
A better estimate of the contribution of rare variants to HTG would require a much broader exploration of the HTG-associated loci detected in GWASs; however, this and other studies have shown that rare variants with strong or moderate effects exist and contribute to the variation of common traits.
The common goal of the papers in this special issue was to establish a common set of loci for strain typing and a common protocol for the application of those loci to investigating the epidemiology of leprae.

We think LOCI levels the playing field by giving communities a tool to estimate the fiscal and economic impacts from a new business location for themselves.
They concluded that differences in the initial allele frequencies of loci with effects on the two traits of the same or opposite sign was the most likely cause of asymmetry and also that "accurate prediction of correlated response over many generations is not possible without prior knowledge of the composition of the genetic covariance, as well as its magnitude" (Robertson and Hill 1983, p.
