This page contains links to software, papers, notes, data sets, and other materials used in a graduate seminar in statistical phylogeography at the University of Connecticut held during Spring Semester 2011.



Meetings Tuesday at 4:00pm (except where noted below in magenta type) in the Bamford Room, TLS 171B

You'll find the papers referred to in the Mendeley bibliography

Date Topic Lead
Jan 18 Snow day
Jan 25 Overview; Introduction to Structure & Structurama

Papers to read: Pritchard et al. (2000), Evanno et al. (2005), Hulsenbeck & Andolfatto (2007)
You may also want to take a look at my notes on Structure from PopGen HTML PDF
A few notes on Structure PDF

Feb 1 Snow day
Feb 8 Structure, Structurama, Clumpp, & distruct

Papers to read: Jakobsson & Rosenberg (2007)
You may also want to look at Santafé et al.(2008). It's heavy going, and I haven't had a chance to study it closely yet, but the approach seems promising.
If you want to read something in addition to Jakobsson & Rosenberg, Kalinowski (2010) is a lot easier, and more likely to be relevant than Santafé et al. (Thanks to Elizabeth for reminding me about it.)

Bibliography on Mendeley.

Note: The bibliography is publicly accessible, but only those whom I invite will be able to add to it. Click the "Ask to join group" button if you're interested.

Free desktop (Windoze, Mac OS X, and Linux) and iPad clients for Mendeley are available. They sync with bibliographies on the web. You may find it useful to get one of these clients, since the web bibliography doesn't sort references by author (or at least I haven't figured out how to get it to sort them by author yet).
