3-3-2019 A new paper discusses challenges of interpreting differences in polygenic scores across populations. Jaehee Kim, Filippo Disanto, and Naama Kopelman report a study of the properties of the neighbor-joining algorithm when applied to data from admixed populations.
The study shows that tree properties conjectured by Kopelman et al.

We are a mathematical, theoretical, and computational lab in genetics and evolution.
Research in the lab addresses problems in evolutionary biology and human genetics through a combination of mathematical modeling, computer simulations, development of statistical methods, and inference from population-genetic data. RECENT NEWS 5-8-2019 In a collaboration with the Stanford Conservation Program, we have developed a stochastic population occupancy model to examine two decades of occupancy data from the campus populations of the California red-legged frog (5-2-2019 A new study led by Alissa Severson examines the relationship between runs of homozygosity and identity-by-descent tracts.
The paper determines for a diploid coalescent model the time to the most recent common ancestor, both for two haplotypes in the same individual and for two haplotypes in different individuals.
Cailliez constant in multidimensional scaling: "it's important to consider what choices we're making and the consequences of those choices." Congrats Ilana!
The lab examines the potential for determining that relatives genotyped with nonoverlapping marker sets are in fact relatives.
Here, Filippo shows that asymptotic growth for nonequivalent configurations is also exponential.
