Working on a couple new ideas:
- Multiple partitions
- Community phylogenetics nulls
- Diversification rates w/ stationary distributions
- Finding my forum a very useful tool for recording and organizing around idea. Nice complement to this notebook which helps me organize temporally instead.
- Becoming convinced I should transition from svn to git. Created a git-hub account and have started learning the basic git commands. The Git community book and the website video tutorials have been very helpful.
- Meanwhile, RabbitVCS is a very slick SVN manager integrated directly into the Nautilus browser. I've also added the svn commands to hotkeys through my vimrc script.
- listened to an interesting talk by Willbanks on science commons and Generative Science'.'
Working on the multiple partitions question for discretization of continuous data.
- Maximum likelihood implementation in R for an arbitrary but fixed number of peaks.
- Writing the MCMC approach now to allow Bayesian partitioning.
- Will be a good test case for the reversible jump process
- Potentially a good test case to explore Dirchlet Process Prior
- Hosting through github.
- Several advantages to the git system -- no central repository, easier branching / merging, faster.
- github interface also seems to have several advantages relative to google code. In addition to supporting git, provides a more intuitive and visually appealing layout for the project.
