Guest speaker Andreas Futschik presenting at 3pm
This Thursday we have guest speaker Andreas Futschik presenting at 3pm, which will replace our standard BRAG meeting for the fortnight. We will start our new BRAG presentation schedule next fortnight.
Andreas Futschik (JKU Linz Austria) will be giving a talk this Thursday 7 July in H405 from 3-4pm.
Title: Statistical Modelling of Population Genetic Data
A brief abstract for the talk: We discuss new and improved methods for estimating population genetic parameters from whole genome sequencing data. In particular we show that some common population genetic estimators are inadmissible with respect to the MSE and provide uniformly better estimates.
