Mary Kuhner will speak on Friday in PopGenLunch seminar. Remember that this is at the usual time (12:30pm) but not in the usual place, but instead in the downstairs seminar room (S040, opposite the elevator on the Ground floor of Foege). Mary's title is:

"A DEEPLY DEMENTED use of phylogenies in cancer research"

If there is time we may be able to get Mary to give us some comments on the wider issue of applicability of phylogeny methods to models of cell lineages in cancer.

We'll connect Erick Matsen this time, I swear.

The schedule for the remainder of the quarter is now:

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: "about my work with Prof. Adam Leache on population structure and population sizes of lizards from central Mexico."

By the way, I want to remind you of the Primate Genomics symposium that the GS Department is running i0am - 4pm in Foege S060 (our downstairs large auditorium) on Wednesday the 20th. And also remind you of Adam Leache's "Phylogenetics Seminar" which runs on Thursdays at 2:30-3:30 in A023D, the secret dungeon seminar room in Kincaid Hall. It is on biogeography methods this quarter. (Just go to the Kincaid basement and follow a maze of twisty turny passages).
