• Animal models with group-specific additive genetic variances: extending genetic group models 

      Muff, Stefanie; Niskanen, Alina Katariina; Saatoglu, Dilan; Keller, Lukas; Jensen, Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Background The animal model is a key tool in quantitative genetics and has been used extensively to estimate fundamental parameters, such as additive genetic variance or heritability. An implicit assumption of animal ...
    • Genetic assignment of individuals to source populations using network estimation tools 

      Kuismin, Markku; Saatoglu, Dilan; Niskanen, Alina Katariina; Jensen, Henrik; Sillanpää, Mikko J. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Dispersal, the movement of individuals between populations, is crucial in many ecological and genetic processes. However, direct identification of dispersing individuals is difficult or impossible in natural populations. ...
    • Inferences of genetic architecture of bill morphology in house sparrow using a high-density SNP array point to a polygenic basis 

      Lundregan, Sarah; Hagen, Ingerid Julie; Gohli, Jostein; Niskanen, Alina Katariina; Kemppainen, Petri; Ringsby, Thor Harald; Kvalnes, Thomas; Pärn, Henrik; Rønning, Bernt; Holand, Håkon; Ranke, Peter Sjolte; Båtnes, Anna Solvang; Selvik, Linn-Karina M.; Lien, Sigbjørn; Sæther, Bernt-Erik; Husby, Arild; Jensen, Henrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Understanding the genetic architecture of quantitative traits can provide insights into the mechanisms driving phenotypic evolution. Bill morphology is an ecologically important and phenotypically variable trait, which is ...
