Workshop on Models and Inference in Population Genetics

University of Warwick, 11-13 December 2019

Warwick Stats

Scope

The aims of this workshop are to bring together researchers at the frontiers of probability and statistical inference in population genetics. The workshop is the 3rd edition of a series with earlier events in 2015 and 2012.

Population genetics has a long history, and has been the motivation behind many well known advances in probability and statistics. It is currently being further revolutionized by progress in DNA sequencing technologies. There is an enticement to develop ever more sophisticated stochastic models in order to make more refined predictions and to apply them to more complex datasets, raising many new challenges in maintaining statistical and computational efficiency.

The programme can be found here. We encourage those registering to contribute to a poster session.
