Folks --

A reminder of today's talk. Also one more speaker has provided his title, so the updated schedule will be found below.

Kerry Bubb will be covering some recent ideas out of Christine Queitsch's lab. Interestingly enough, in the hour following our semninar (i.e. 1:30-2:30pm) Christine will be speaking on (what sounds like) a very similar topic in the EvolSyst (Evolution and Systematics) seminar. It meets in Hitchcock 320, and is open to any PopGenLunch person too. So you have the opportunity to hear more!

The revised schedule:

Date: 1/25
Who: Kerry Bubb (Genome Sciences)
Topic: Modeling complex diseases: What to expect when you are GWASing

Date: 2/1
Who: Joe Felsenstein (Genome Sciences)
Topic: Potpourri: a number of interesting unrelated small results

Date: 2/8
Who: Serge Sverdlov (Statistics)
Topic: Dominance architectures in an infinite allele model

Date: 2/15
Who: Mary Kuhner (Genome Sciences)
Topic: a DEEPLY DEMENTED use of phylogenetics in cancer research

Date: 2/22
Who: Elizabeth Thompson (Statistics)
Topic: Counts of relatives and rare variant extinction in infinite populations

Date: 3/1
Who: Erick Matsen (FHCRC)
Topic: Fitting likelihood curves for fun and profit

Date: 3/8
Who: Julia Palacios Roman (Statistics)
Topic: tba

Our schedule is full but not complete: we still need titles/topics from two of you.

This quarter the seminar will be in S040 Foege, the downstairs seminar room opposite the elevators on Ground floor.
