Distances

A natural or ideal measure of distance between two sequences should have an evolutionary meaning.

One such measure may be the number of nucleotide substitutions that have accumulated in the two sequences since they have diverged from each other.


Distances

To derive a measure of distance, we need to make several simplifying assumptions regarding the probability of substitution of a nucleotide by another.


Jukes cantor one parameter model

Jukes & Cantor one-parameter model


Assumption

Assumption:

  • Substitutions occur with equal probabilities among the four nucleotide types.


Kimura s two parameter model

Kimura’s two-parameter model


Assumptions

Assumptions:

  • The rate of transitional substitution at each nucleotide site is  per unit time.

  • The rate of each type of transversional substitution is  per unit time.


Number of nucleotide substitutions between two dna sequences

NUMBER OF NUCLEOTIDE SUBSTITUTIONS BETWEEN TWO DNA SEQUENCES


Distances

After two nucleotide sequences diverge from each other, each of them will start accumulating nucleotide substitutions. If two sequences of length N differ from each other at n sites, then the proportion of differences, n/N, is referred to as the degreeof divergence or Hamming distance. Degrees of divergence are usually expressed as percentages (n/N 100%).


Distances

The observed number of differences is likely to be smaller than the actual number of substitutions due to multiple hits at the same site.


13 mutations 3 differences

13 mutations=3 differences


Number of substitutions between two noncoding sequences

Number of substitutions between two noncoding sequences


The one parameter model

The one-parameter model

In this model, it is sufficient to consider only I(t), which is the probability that the nucleotide at a given site at time t is the same in both sequences.


Distances

where p is the observed proportion of different nucleotides between the two sequences.


Distances

L = number of sites compared in the ungapped alignment between the two sequences.


The two parameter model

The two-parameter model


Distances

The differences between two sequences are classified into transitions and transversions. P = proportion of transitional differencesQ = proportion of transversional differences

ACCCG

Q = 0.2

P = 0.2

Substitution schemes with more than two parameters parameter free substitution schemes

Substitution schemes with more than two parameters.- Parameter-free substitution schemes.


Number of substitutions between two protein coding genes

Number of substitutions between two protein-coding genes


Distances

Difficulties with denominator:

1. The classification of a site changes with time: For example, the third position of CGG (Arg) is synonymous. However, if the first position changes to T, then the third position of the resulting codon, TGG (Trp), becomes nonsynonymous.


Distances

T

Trp

Nonsynonymous


Distances

Difficulties with denominator:

2. Many sites are neither completely synonymous nor completely nonsynonymous. For example, a transition in the third position of GAT (Asp) will be synonymous, while a transversion to either GAG or GAA will alter the amino acid.


Distances

Difficulties with nominator:1. The classification of the change depends on the order in which the substitutions had occurred.


Distances

Difficulties with nominator:2. Transitions occur with different frequencies than transversions. 3. The type of substitution depends on the mutation. Transitions result more frequently in synonymous substitutions than transversions.

Number of amino acid replacements between two proteins

Number of Amino-Acid Replacements between Two Proteins

  • The observed proportion of different amino acids between the two sequences (p) is

    p = n /L

  • n = number of amino acid differences between the two sequences

  • L = length of the aligned sequences.


Number of amino acid replacements between two proteins1

Number of Amino-Acid Replacements between Two Proteins

The Poisson model is used to convert p into the number of amino replacements between two sequences (d ):

d = - ln(1 – p)

The variance of d is estimated as

V(d) = p/L (1 – p)
