Meeting time and place

For the Fall 2013 semester, we are meeting in the Bamford Room (TLS 171B) Mondays 2-3pm

Monday, 26 August 2013

At this meeting we will discuss possible themes for this semester's seminar:

Labor Day, no meeting

Elizabeth Jockusch will lead the discussion this week.

We will follow up on Emily Lemmon's visit by discussing her methods paper on anchored enrichment.

Lily Lewis will lead the discussion this week

Since cichlids came up last week, it may be fun to read a cichlid RAD-seq paper:

Wagner et al. 2013. Genome-wide RAD sequence data provide unprecedented resolution of species boundaries and relationships in the Lake Victoria cichlid adaptive radiation. Molecular Ecology 22(3):787-798 link

Here is a link to a supplementary paper folks may be interested in for an overview of the applications of RAD-sequencing (or at least those conceived of thus far):

Davey, J. W., and M. L. Blaxter. 2010. RADSeq: next-generation population genetics. Briefings in Functional Genomics 9(5-6):416-423 link

Here is a link to a protocol for RAD-seq library prep, just in case anyone is interested:

Etter, P. Sequenced RAD markers for rapid SNP disovery and genetic mapping. link

Finally, here is a PowerPoint concatenation of a few figures from various papers laying out how the RAD-seq process works. This may be a helpful supplement for understanding the methods in the cichlid paper link
