Meeting with Bohonak

Proposal stuff

  • overall, what I have right now is sufficient for a proposal, so long as I can defend the remainder of the work
  • some tables:
one with loci (each species) ... # proposed, # potential, # screened, # polymorphic, # polymorphic/need cleaning, # monomorphic/dirty/throw out
one with tissue (each species / location) ... # proposed, # captured, # extracted
  • mendelian inheritance of markers:
if not, then gravid female
if not, then H-W equilibrium (and the thing from Genelex), with defense of why this is good enough
  • calculation of error rates:
present a plan for calculation
some citations from Justin's: Hoffman and Amos; Bonin et al 2004
handful of samples re-extracted, re-amplified, re-scored throughout the process (not all at the end)
because of human error, null alleles
  • lay out a plan for hypothesis testing
for hypothesis 1, here are the three analyses I'll be using
for hypothesis 2, here are the three analyses I'll be using
  • be able to talk about assumptions of each analysis program
popgen knowledge should be sufficient
familiarize with each individual program
