Abstract

Chronic wasting disease is a fatal neurological, disease caused by an infectious prion protein, which affects economically and ecologically important members of the family Cervidae. Single nucleotide polymorphisms within the prion protein gene have been linked to differential susceptibility to the disease in many species. Wildlife managers are seeking to determine the frequencies of disease-associated alleles and genotypes and delineate spatial genetic patterns. The CWDPRNP package, implemented in program R, provides a unified framework for analyzing prion protein gene variability and spatial structure. The CWDPRNP package, manual, and example data files are available at http://ecosystems.psu.edu/research/labs/walter-lab/additional-labs/population-genetics-lab . This package is available for all commonly used platforms. [email protected]

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 12 October 2017.
All research outputs
#17,529,420
of 22,489,892 outputs
Outputs from Computer applications in the biosciences CABIOS
#10,168
of 11,614 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#203,849
of 290,116 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Computer applications in the biosciences CABIOS
#57
of 74 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,489,892 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 11,614 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 7.3. This one is in the 9th percentile – i.e., 9% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 290,116 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 74 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
