Formal methods for evolutionary inference using ancient DNA

Abstract:

Ancient DNA has revolutionised our ability to study past evolutionary processes by enabling direct observation of genetic variation in past populations. However, current formal methods for evolutionary inference are challenged by the sparse and heterogeneous distribution of data in space and in time, typical of ancient DNA datasets, as well as sample age uncertainty. In this thesis, I introduce analytical approaches that explicitly address these problems and show how inference from ancient...
