This week it is my turn. I was going to speak on a number of different minor results. But one of them kept growing, so now I will speak on it. Only now I have found out, from Monty Slatkin, that it repeats work that Stan Sawyer and Dan Hartl did in the 1980s, and which he and Bruce Rannala did in the 1997. So I am mostly going to explain their work, with a few interpolations of my model when it is relevant.

So here is the schedule of the remainder of the quarter:

The revised schedule:

Date: 2/1
Who: Joe Felsenstein (Genome Sciences)
Topic: The heterogeneity of deleterious alleles at a locus

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 one of you.

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