RK Laxman has passed away. For me, he was the best bit of reading the Times of India. What I loved about him is that his satire was sublime. There was no in your face slapstick with him. He was a poet with his drawings. More endearing to me is the fact that he understood irony like no other commentator I know of. And through his irony, he made his protagonists laugh at themselves. That is genius in my book, pure genius.

This concert came almost 20 years after his seminal MTV Unpugged concert. He has changed in so many different ways but at the same time there is somrthing about him that remains true and constant. There is a truer sense of freedom and abandin about him which is actually something he never had till now I think. But then there is praying for time which I think is a bit older than 20. If his words in that song was depressing in the 90s, today they are hopelessly depressing. Have we changed so little in a generation? Aren't we still praying for time?

Hultman numbers: measuring genetic distance

If two genomes contain the same genes, but they have been rearranged by a sequence of reversals, translocations, fusions and fissions, how can we measure how closely related the two genomes are? It turns out that a key parameter in this problem is the number of cycles in the graph shown on the right of the picture. These cycles are enumerated by the Hultman numbers.

It is possible for a genome to experience genome rearrangements, which are evolutionary events that change the order of the genes in a genome. However, a single genome rearrangement will not scramble the genes in a random permutation, but instead it will typically cut the genome in a small number of places and reattach the pieces in a different order. A genome rearrangement that cuts the genome in exactly k places is known as a k-break.

Hultman numbers: measuring genetic distance

If two genomes contain the same genes, but they have been rearranged by a sequence of reversals, translocations, fusions and fissions, how can we measure how closely related the two genomes are? It turns out that a key parameter in this problem is the number of cycles in the graph shown on the right of the picture. These cycles are enumerated by the Hultman numbers.

It is possible for a genome to experience genome rearrangements, which are evolutionary events that change the order of the genes in a genome. However, a single genome rearrangement will not scramble the genes in a random permutation, but instead it will typically cut the genome in a small number of places and reattach the pieces in a different order. A genome rearrangement that cuts the genome in exactly k places is known as a k-break.

The most common types of genome rearrangement can be modelled as 2-breaks, (also known as Double-Cut-and-Join, or DCJ) which means that the genome is cut in exactly two places and the resulting pieces reattached. Examples of such rearrangements include reversals, which flip segments of a chromosome; translocations, which exchange segments of two chromosomes; fusions, which merge two chromosomes into one; and fissions, which split a single chromosome into two. The 2-break distance (or DCJ distance) between two genomes is the smallest number of 2-breaks required to transform one of the genomes into the other. 

An easier special case of the problem treats the case where the genome consists of one chromosome that is linear (as opposed to circular); in other words, the genome consists of a one unbroken string of genes. Each gene in the genome is considered to have a head and a tail, which gives it an orientation. It is also convenient to include a virtual gene numbered 0 which, if it actually existed, would link the last gene in the genome to the first gene.

The diagram on the left of the picture shows the genome graph of a toy model of a genome called Q, which has five genes numbered 1 to 5, together with a virtual gene, numbered 0. The genes in Q are denoted by solid line segments, with an arrow pointing from the tail of the gene to the head. (The tail and head of a gene are indicated by the superscripts t and h, respectively.) The dashed lines show the order in which the genes are connected in the genome. This information can be represented more concisely by the signed permutation (1, –3, 5, 2, –4). If we ignore the signs, this gives (1, 3, 5, 2, 4), which is the order in which the genes appear in the genome, reading clockwise from the virtual gene 0. The negative signs appear in front of 3 and 4 to signify that the orientation of those genes is opposite to that of the other genes.

If we define the genome P to be the one corresponding to the signed permutation (1, 2, 3, 4, 5), then we see that P and Q have the same genes, but in a different order and with different orientations. The diagram on the right of the picture shows that breakpoint graph, G(P, Q), which can be used to visualise the evolutionary closeness of P and Q. The numbers with superscripts that appear around the perimeter of the breakpoint graph are the same ones that would appear in the genome graph of P if we drew it, and the solid lines in the breakpoint graph correspond to the dashed lines in the genome graph of P. On the other hand, the dashed lines in the breakpoint graph correspond to the dashed lines in the genome graph of Q. For example, there is a dashed line from 2^t to 5^h in the breakpoint graph of G(P, Q) because there is also a dashed line from 2^t to 5^h in Q, even though the line itself appears in a different position.

The key feature of the breakpoint graph is the way it decomposes into cycles. For example, the graph G(P, Q) shown on the right of the picture splits up into three cycles, each of which contains some dashed edges and an equal number of solid edges. A cycle containing r dashed and r solid edges is called an r-cycle. In our example, the breakpoint graph contains one 1-cycle (involving the points 0^h and 1^t), one 2-cycle, and one 3-cycle. It is a theorem about breakpoint graphs that the 2-break distance between genomes P and Q is equal to n+1–c, where n is the number of genes (5 in our case) and c is the number of cycles in the breakpoint graph (3 in our case). In other words, the 2-break distance between P and Q is 3 (because 3=5+1–3). 

The (signed) Hultman number H(n,d) is the number of unichromosomal genomes with n genes whose breakpoint graph (relative to a fixed genome) contains a total of d cycles. There is a closed formula for these numbers, but it is rather complicated. The recent paper Generalized Hultman Numbers and the Distribution of Multi-break Distances by Nikita Alexeev, Anna Pologova, and Max A. Alekseyev (http://arxiv.org/abs/1503.05285) generalizes the notion of Hultman numbers from the context of 2-break distance to the context of k-break distance. Although k-break distances have not been observed in evolution, they are used in cancer genomics to measure a catastrophic event called chromothripsis in which multiple breakages happen simultaneously. The authors give recurrence relations for the generalized Hultman numbers in the unichromosomal case, but no closed formula. They intend to treat the multichromosomal case in a future paper. Asymptotically, the 2-break distance is known to be normally distributed, but it is not known what happens for general values of k.

The paper Efficient sorting of genomic permutations by translocation, inversion and block interchange by S. Yancopoulos, O. Attie, and R. Friedberg contains many interesting results in this area. It is freely downloadable from http://bioinformatics.oxfordjournals.org/content/21/16/3340.full.pdf+html

The unsigned Hultman numbers deal with the case where the orientations of the genes are ignored. The unsigned and signed numbers appear in the On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences at https://oeis.org/A164652 and https://oeis.org/A189507 respectively.

Focal Length Overview - field of view

This album might be helpful for any other hobby photographers out there, who are interested in focal lengths and how they change the field of view.

Photos were taken with an EOS 7DMkII  (except for the one with the telescope. That was an EOS 60D). If you don't use Canon or you have FF then consider that the 7D and 60D are Canon APS-C with a crop factor of 1.6x. Thus if I used a lens at 10mm it is the same as a full frame at 16 mm

Photos have not been processed, except to downsize to 1920*1280 pixels and add in focal length information as text. You'll see variation between the lenses and how the image quality degrades with the longer focal lengths through extender or the telescope.

It was helpful for me to do the exercise and maybe one or the other of you can use the information too. The main reason I did it, was that I wanted to see if I could use the telescope to take photos, because I am hoping I might be able to use it for pictures of the partial solar eclipse on March 20.

There is a huge untapped market for commercialising Islam. Close on the heels of this Iranian venture, it would seem Hollywood has woken up with neon glow dollar signs exploding in her eyes. Now I am pretty sure those Islamist terror types are toast.

So how does one square this from the article: "A T-72 tank crew was captured Saturday and was being interrogated, Defense Minister Poltorak said in televised remarks. Russia has repeatedly refused to acknowledge it is providing military assistance and troops to the separatists and has insisted that Ukraine separatists used T-64 tanks they had captured from Ukrainian military. Ukraine army doesn't have T-72 or T-80 tanks." with the links to Wikipedia that does show Ukraine does operate T-72s and T-80s?

RK Laxman has passed away. For me, he was the best bit of reading the Times of India. What I loved about him is that his satire was sublime. There was no in your face slapstick with him. He was a poet with his drawings. More endearing to me is the fact that he understood irony like no other commentator I know of. And through his irony, he made his protagonists laugh at themselves. That is genius in my book, pure genius.
