  • Publication number: 20220223233
    Abstract: Estimating parental contribution of ancestry includes: obtaining a set of ancestry assignment data associated with an individual's genotype data, at least some of the ancestry assignment data indicating that one or more segments of the individual's genotype data is deemed to be associated with a specific ancestry; determining whether in the individual's genotype data there is at least one confirmed region of overlapping ancestry assignment associated with the specific ancestry; in the event that it is determined that there is at least one confirmed region of overlapping ancestry assignment associated with the specific ancestry: specifying that parental contribution of the specific ancestry is made by both parents of the individual; in the event that it is determined that there is no confirmed region of overlapping ancestry assignment associated with the specific ancestry: statistically determining whether the parental contribution to the specific ancestry is made by only one parent of the individual or by bot

  • Publication number: 20090101559
    Abstract: The present invention includes a microfluidic filter and concentrator that can separate a filtrate from a fluid containing components, e.g. a suspension of particles, to be removed from the fluid at least to some extent. The filter may employ principals of tangential flow filtration, also known as cross-flow filtration. In one aspect, a microfluidic filter described herein includes at least a first, main channel and one or more secondary, filtering channels that connect to the main channel. Filtration occurs when a fluid portion of a sample that is flowed through the main channel enters one or more of the filtering channels and at least some of the components in the sample do not enter or do not flow through the secondary, filtering channels. The secondary channels may be dimensioned to inhibit flow of components through them, and/or a porous material such as a layer may be positioned to inhibit flow of components through the secondary channels.
