Distinguished Lecture in Data Science

Title: Using Networks in Evolutionary Genetics and Genomics

Speaker: Prof. Alan R. Templeton (Charles
Rebstock Emeritus Professor of Biology
and Statistical Genomics, Washington
University in St. Louis)

Abstract: Networks consist of nodes interconnected by edges. In evolutionary biology, the nodes can be alleles, individuals, populations, species, etc. The edges reflect relationships or associations between the nodes, such as linkage disequilibrium, social interactions, genetic similarity, etc. Three examples will be given of how networks can be used to gain powerful new insights in evolutionary genetics and genomics: the role of landscape structure on social, dispersal, and gene flow networks; coadapted genetic complexes in a spatially varying environment, and population structure.
