Statistical methods for genetic data in ecology: four ways to take into account spatial information, and four ways not to
Friday seminar by Gilles Guillot
All my work has been centred on the development of statistical methods for questions where the spatial locations of the sample matters, either because there is an interest in estimating parameters related to a process that is genuinely spatial, or because spatial auto-correlation acts as a confounding effect that has to be filtered out to make accurate statistical inference. I will summarize and discuss some recent methods for the analysis of genetic data to detect population structure and quantify the contribution of heterogeneity in environmental conditions.
