Jukes, The

Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • Jukes, The A pseudonym used to designate the descendants of two sisters, the “Jukes” sisters, whose husbands were sons of a backwoodsman of Dutch descent. They lived in the State of New York, and their history was investigated by R. L. Dugdale as an example of the inheritance of criminal and immoral tendencies, disease, and pauperism. Sixty per cent of those traced showed, degeneracy, and they are estimated to have cost society $1,308,000 in 75 years.

In science:

For testing the efficiency of the new metric, we defined our metric on three existing models namely the Jukes-Cantor model, the Kimura-2-parameter model, and the F84 model and used each of them in phylogenetic tree reconstruction from simulated as well as real data.
A new distance between DNA sequences
To substantiate the claim that the new metric improves the existing metrics such as the Jukes-Cantor metric, F84 metric and Kimura-2-parameter metric, we conducted simulation experiments with simulated as well as real data. The details of these experiments are as follows.
A new distance between DNA sequences
Jukes-Cantor model. Figures 1-3 shows the comparison of the new metric with the corresponding existing metric in terms of nodal distance.
A new distance between DNA sequences
This time also the new metric couldn’t improve the Kimura-2-parameter metric; but the improvement brought by the new metric to the Jukes-Cantor and F84 metrics became more evident.
A new distance between DNA sequences
The label in the bottom corner shows the substitution model used to simulate the data, then the modelassumed in the Bayesian analysis, and then the sequence length in nucleotides; JC69 = Jukes-Cantor, GTRG = general time-reversible + gamma-distributed among-site rate variation.
Bayesian posterior probabilities: revisited
The label in the bottom corner shows the substitution model used to simulate thedata, then the model assumed in the bootstrap analysis (the sequence length is 100 nucleotides); JC69 = Jukes-Cantor, GTRG = general time-reversible + gamma-distributed among-site rate variation.
Bayesian posterior probabilities: revisited
Perhaps most repetitive is the Jukes-Cantor model for DNA.
Developing and applying heterogeneous phylogenetic models with XRate
The distance can use any of the standard Markovian evolutionary models such as the Jukes Cantor one parameter model or Kimura two parameter model (Felsenstein, 2004), or a simple Hamming distance between sequences.

We were able to draw samples from Jukes-Cantor quartets by adding the homologous sequence of the Gibbon.

Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
Unlike the Jukes-Cantor model, all 15 distinct site patterns are minimally sufficient under the HKY model and this is reflected in its longer CPU time.
Auto-validating von Neumann Rejection Sampling from Small Phylogenetic Tree Spaces
This form of rate matrix is known as the Jukes-Cantor model .
Using invariants for phylogenetic tree construction
Jukes-Cantor and Kimura models, and variants of the general Markov model, in which no constraints are placed on the transition matrices.
Using invariants for phylogenetic tree construction
For example, for a quartet tree (an unrooted binary tree with four leaves, see Figure 3) under the Jukes-Cantor model, pAAAA − pCCCC = 0, due to the symmetry built into the model.
Using invariants for phylogenetic tree construction
While the polynomials in Theorem 3.1 do not generate the ideal for the DNA alphabet, versions of these polynomials do vanish for any Markov model on a tree. A similar result also holds for the Jukes-Cantor model in Fourier coordinates; the following is part of [50, Thm 2].
