New notes published – inbreeding in populations and analysis of genetic structure

I’ve just posted the next sets of notes for the course, notes on inbreeding and self-fertilization and notes on analysis of genetic structure in populations. The notes on inbreeding illustrate the effects of inbreeding by focusing on the simplest and most extreme version of inbreeding, self-fertilization. They introduce several of the senses in which the term “inbreeding coefficient” is used and illustrate how they’re related to one another. The notes on genetic structure illustrate the Wahulund effect and provide an introduction to estimating Wright’s F-statistics.
