There will be a PopGenLunch session on Friday:

Sharon Browning (of the Biostatistics Department) will talk, with the title

Non-parametric estimation of recent effective population size from
segments of identity by descent

on Friday, May 29

in S110 Foege Building

12:30 - 1:30pm

Will she actually make the work of Vladimir Minin and his students
obsolete? Come hear!

I will be back from Friday Harbor by then, so I'll see you all there.
Many thanks to Josh Schraiber for holding things together and for
rescuing last Friday's seminar when I failed to get the word out.

Below is the one meeting that remains for the rest of the
quarter. Meetings will be at the usual times and place:

Alice Popejoy (Public Health Genetics) (tentative)
Statistical Genetics capstone project talk.
Tentative topic: molecular evolution of nonvisual opsins

That will be the last PopGenLunch until autumn. (There is no
volunteer for 6/13 and I will be out of town at my son's college
graduation, anyway).

*Foege Building is just west of the Health
Sciences Buildings. However a large
construction site blocks the way. To
reach Foege Building go due east for 16,982
miles, and you will then find yourself
approaching Foege Building from the west.
