- Links to published papers (some viewable freely) will be found in the
publications list in my C.V.
- For papers since 1990, versions will be found here,
many of them being preprint versions.
Courses I teach (in each case the most recent course web page is linked
Links to videos of some lectures I have given:
At Microsoft Research in December, 2007 in a workshop on
“Computational Aspects of Biological Information”, a lecture
on “Reconstructing Phylogenies: How? How Well? Why?,” At the link
you will be able to access the video in two formats, the audio recording in
two formats, and the slides in two formats.
If you want a clearer view of the slides,
here they are as a PDF.
Association Julian Huxley Lecture, July 2008, auditorium of the Linnean
Society, London. At that web page you will also find the projection slides, which can
be downloadable as a PDF. This talk covers the use of threshold models for
discrete 0/1 traits and use of fossil species in model-based frameworks.
Lecture at 500th Convocation of the University of Chicago, October, 2009 (the sound for
Marty Kreitman's introduction breaks up, but the rest of the sound is
clear). If you want a clearer view of the projection slides, here they are as a PDF. This talk argues that
the separate lines of work on within-species molecular population genetics and
between-species molecular evolution are now merging in a major event, a Grand
- Evening at
the Genome lecture in Seattle on 28 July 2010 in the Genome Sciences
Department public lecture series, on “Mitochondrial Eve and Y-chromosome
Adam: Who do your genes come from?” Video is in two parts. For
greater clarity, here is a PDF of the slides.
webcast on 24 January 2011 on the subject “What poultry breeders and
guinea pigs have to tell us about statistical nonmolecular
phylogenetics”, in Erick Matsen's interesting series of talks by various
people working on phylogenies. This froze part way through on one machine I
tried it on, but could play all the way through on another -- I think it needs
lots of memory.
- Mary Kuhner interviews me in the Distinguished Faculty Interview Series of our department on 5 June 2012.
I ran over, which I can't say surprised anyone.
