EEB Journal Club
February 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
. . . Friday, February 28. This week’s discussion will be a review paper by Bradburd & Ralph titled “Spatial Population Genetics: It’s About Time.” However, we’d like to try a slightly different format. A main focus of this paper is forward-time simulation using the program SLiM, which has received considerable attention for its flexibility and ability to handle arbitrarily complex population models. Therefore, in conjunction with a paper discussion I’d like to walk through a few basic simulation models in SLiM for those interested. If there is something in particular you’d like to know if SLiM can handle, email me and we can try to come up with a recipe to test out on Friday. As usual, journal club will be in Butler Hall Rm. 202 at 4:00 PM on Friday. Afterwards, we will be heading over to Duddley’s for Happy Hour. PS: We’re looking for people to sign-up to lead the discussions in the upcoming weeks, so if you haven’t yet be sure you sign-up here!
