This Friday we will discuss a new review paper by Vermeij on his "Escalation" theory, which he sees as the viable alternative to the Red Queen hypothesis. The paper is a long verbal argument, but gives some context to the points made about the Red Queen in the recent paper by Vermeij & Roopnarine in Paleobiology.
This week we discuss a paper by Berenos, Schmid-Hempel and Wegner entitled "Antagonistic Coevolution Accelerates the Evolution of Reproductive Isolation in Tribolium castaneum".
A collection of recent CEES publications
We'll have a brainstorm on SNP calling from whole genome sequencing data. I'll briefly describe the pipeline I've run up to now, which is mostly preceding actual SNP calling, and then want to focus the discussion on how to get a high quality SNP dataset from low coverage resequencing - i.e. how to call SNPs, what filtering criteria to use to distinguish high from low quality SNPs, and how this may vary depending on the subsequent analyses we want to do with our SNP data. This will really be a brainstorm, an open discussion, all ideas welcome. If you would like to read up a bit beforehand, I can recommend the guide form the Broad Institute which has been one of my guidelines along the way (http://www.broadinstitute.org/gatk/guide/best-practices).
