Study Group: Approximate methods for recombination

A lunch-time reading group on approximate methods for recombination

This is an archive of the reading group's web page.

Approximate methods for recombination are a set of algorithmic and statistical heuristics aimed at detecting recombination from population genetic data. The material we have already discussed or will be discussing shortly is chronologically listed below.
