Biostat 580B - Statistical Genetics Seminar
Spring Quarter 1999
Seminar: Tuesday 4:00-5:00 F-600 Biostatistics conference room
Reminder: Everyone should read the papers (make a copy from the copy left in
the stat mailbox, or the purple biostat 580B homework folder under the biostat
mailboxes). Discussion leaders are only expected to spend 15-20 minutes
presenting the assigned papers. If you don't understand everything, focus on
what you can, and try to think about what is important about the papers, and
what open questions you are left with.
Remember the important questions:
Why? What? Why? How? Why? What next? and WHY?
NOTE THIS IS THE MORE UP-TO-DATE version on Stat.

Organismal Phylogeny: Reconciled Trees and the Gene Tree/Species Tree
Problem, Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution 7(2) pp231-240.
Also in the stat and biostat boxes is a Trends in Ecology and Evolution
paper. The article has a box which
covers (some of) the terminology:

trees: phylogeny and Historical associations, Trends in Ecology and
Evolution ("TREE") vol 13(9) pp 356-359.

the links will all still be there -- the links to previous quarters do not
exist in Stat.)
