Positive Genetic

Mutations/deletions in separate genes, each of which alone causes a minimal phenotype, but when combined in the same cell results in a less severe fitness defect than expected under a given condition. This term is reserved for high or low throughput studies with scores.


Hierarchical Modularity and the Evolution of Genetic Interactomes across Species.

To date, cross-species comparisons of genetic interactomes have been restricted to small or functionally related gene sets, limiting our ability to infer evolutionary trends. To facilitate a more comprehensive analysis, we constructed a genome-scale epistasis map (E-MAP) for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe, providing phenotypic signatures for ∼60% of the nonessential genome. Using these signatures, we generated a catalog of ... [more]

Additional Notes

  • An Epistatic MiniArray Profile (E-MAP) approach was used to quantitatively score genetic interactions based on fitness defects estimated from the colony size of double versus single mutants. Genetic interactions were considered significant if they had an S score > 1.8 for positive interactions (epistatic or suppressor interactions) and S score < -2.3 for negative interactions (synthetic sick/lethal interactions).
