The likelihood of gene trees under selective models

Abstract:

The extent to which natural selection shapes diversity within populations is a key question for population genetics. Thus, there is considerable interest in quantifying the strength of selection. In this thesis a full likelihood approach for inference about selection at a single site within an otherwise neutral fully-linked sequence of sites is developed. Integral to many of the ideas introduced in this thesis is the reversibility of the diffusion process, and some past approaches to this...
