1. Twin studies have been used to estimate the heritability of many sport and exerciserelated traits, either with Falconer’s formula or other models. We will mention and discuss heritability estimates for endurance and muscle mass and strength-related traits in Chapters 5 and 7. Twin studies are difficult to perform, however, because twinning rates in most regions are below 20 twins per 1000 live births (Smits and Monden, 2011) and thus it is difficult to recruit sufficiently large cohorts of twins to achieve adequate statistical power for a study.

Phase-contrast and Nomarski interference contrast are two of the methods used to generate contrast in unstained cells. Inverted (light) microscopes are used to visualize, for example, living cells on the bottom of culture flasks. Inverted microscopes have the lenses located below the sample while the lighting is above. 3 Microscopy laboratory equipment. (a) A cryostat(-microtome) which is used to cut frozen sections. (1) The frozen sections are ‘glued’ to a metal block using a viscous solution that freezes quickly.

The presence and effect of especially large copy-number variations such as insertions, deletions and inversions of large chunks of DNA, often containing genes, has long been underestimated. , 2008). To summarize, mutations occur mainly during DNA replication and give rise to DNA sequence variations. Such sequence variations include SNPs, insertions, deletions, frameshift and copynumber mutations, and gross chromosomal rearrangements. Many sequence variations are silent, which means that they do not affect the fitness or phenotype of an individual.
