The inference of demographic history of populations is an important undertaking in population genetics. A few recent studies have developed identity-by-descent (IBD) based methods to reveal the signature of the relatively recent historical events. Notably, Pe'er and his colleagues have introduced a novel method (named PIBD here) by employing IBD sharing to infer effective population size and migration rate. However, under island model, PIBD neglects the coalescent information before the time to… CONTINUE READING
