Note unusual time

I will touch upon 3 topics of computational biology related to my Ph.D work in the first year.

Firstly, I will talk about inferring population structure from ancestral recombination graphs, and applying it to 70 yeast strains.

Secondly, I will introduce the factor analysis model developed by Oli Stegle, and show how it increases power to detect genotype-gene expression relationships in simulated and real data.

Finally, I’ll discuss modelling gene expression data for microRNA knockout mice to find microRNA gene targets.

No previous biology experience required!
