Detecting selection on nucleotide sequences, evolution in multigene families

I’ve posted notes for next week’s lectures about detecting selection on nucleotide sequences (which will introduce you to Tajima’s D) and on evolution in multigene families (which will introduce you to orthology, paralogy, and concerted evolution). Remember that Nora will be presenting these lectures, since I’ll be in Dublin at the annual meetings of the Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies (DDoGS) for universities in Universitas 21 ( Nora knows population genetics very well, and it’s likely she’ll be able to answer any question you have. If for some reason she can’t, keep track of it. We’ll spend time dealing with any of those questions on the Tuesday when I return.
