Peter Ralph and I’s article on the geography of recent genetic genealogy in Europe is out in PLOS Biology. We’ve written an FAQ on the paper, that we sent out with the press release. PLOS also has a synopsis of … Continue reading
I’m releasing my notes on popgen here. I’m release the pdf (and shortly the latex, figures, and code) under a creative common license in order to encourage reuse by as many folks as possible. I’ll be updating them somewhat regularly, … Continue reading
Coop lab tea: Indirect Evolution of Hybrid Lethality Due to Linkage with Selected Locus in Mimulus guttatus
For Coop lab tea we’ll read: Indirect Evolution of Hybrid Lethality Due to Linkage with Selected Locus in Mimulus guttatus by Wright et al.
Journal tea: Oct 23rd Distinguishing between Selective Sweeps from Standing Variation and from a De Novo Mutation
Distinguishing between Selective Sweeps from Standing Variation and from a De Novo Mutation Peter et al
We read: Butterfly genome reveals promiscuous exchange of mimicry adaptations among species which was a potentially neat paper, but we were unsure whether it was really introgression of the mimcry genes or maintenance of trans-population/species polymorphism by balancing selection.
We’ve just resubmitted our article on the coalescent for generalized selective sweeps to Genetics. I’ve posted the new version to the arXiv.
The Coop Lab will be hosting the sixth Bay area population genomics (BAPG) meeting at UC Davis on May 26th. This is a great informal meeting 2-3 times a year of the Bay area evolutionary and population geneticists. The signup … Continue reading
For Monday at 9.45am (Coop lab) let’s read these papers about the problems with the mantel test: popgen problems with mantel: http://arxiv.org/abs/1112.0651 phylogeny problems with mantel: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1558-5646.2010.00973.x/suppinfo
Yaniv is back from trip to see Nick Barton and others in Vienna. You can read more about his trip here. I’m surprised they let him back into the country as he didn’t bring a present for the lab .
