Detecting Recent Positive Selection with a Single Locus Test Bipartitioning the Coalescent Tree
Simulations demonstrate that the proposed test has high power to detect recent positive selection even when DNA polymorphism data from only one locus is available, and that it is robust to the confounding effect of demography.
The distributions under two species-tree models
6 For a pair consisting of a gene tree and a species tree, the ancestral configurations at an internal node of 7 the species tree are the distinct sets of gene lineages that can be present at that
Enumeration of Ancestral Configurations for Matching Gene Trees and Species Trees
This work studies ancestral configurations in balanced and unbalanced families of trees determined by a given seed tree, showing that for seed trees with more than one taxon, the number of ancestral configurations increases for both families exponentially in the numberof taxa n.
The distributions under two species-tree models of the number of root ancestral configurations for matching gene trees and species trees
In the case that the gene tree matches the species tree in topology, the distribution of the number of root ancestral configurations of a random labeled tree topology under each of two models is studied.
On the Number of Ranked Species Trees Producing Anomalous Ranked Gene Trees
This work studies enumerative and probabilistic properties of two classes of ranked labeled species trees, focusing on the presence or avoidance of certain subtree patterns associated with the production of ARGTs, and provides exact enumerations and asymptotic estimates for cardinalities.
Population genomics: From classical statistics to supervised learning
A brief introduction was first given on the important theory in population genomics, then the recent research progress in population Genomics was overviewed and the perspectives on its future development were shared.


Stochastic models and descriptive statistics for phylogenetic trees, from Yule to today
A probabilist’s musings on what dominates the macroevolutionary process (adaptive radiation; “neutral” evolution) and how a simple stochastic model predicts the observed pattern of imbalance.
Which random processes describe the tree of life? A large-scale study of phylogenetic tree imbalance.
The most popular model of phylogenetic trees is a branching process introduced by Yule, in which lineages split at random (Yule, 1924), and here the study of one major database of published phylogenies is reported.
The Mean and Variance of the Numbers of r-Pronged Nodes and r-Caterpillars in Yule-Generated Genealogical Trees
Abstract.The Yule model is a frequently-used evolutionary model that can be utilized to generate random genealogical trees. Under this model, using a backwards counting method differing from the
On statistical tests of phylogenetic tree imbalance: the Sackin and other indices revisited.
Genealogies of rapidly adapting populations
It is argued that lineages trace back to a small pool of highly fit ancestors, in which almost simultaneous coalescence of more than two lineages frequently occurs, and should be considered as a null model for adapting populations.
Distributions of cherries for two models of trees.
Using tree shape.
These papers are an excellent, if incomplete, update on the decade's work on tree shape, and expect to see major advances made with new software tools and ever better statistical power.
By analogy with the theory surrounding the Ewens sampling formula in neutral population genetics, we ask whether there exists a natural one-parameter family of probability distributions on cladograms
Hitchhiking under positive Darwinian selection.
Application of the H test to published surveys of Drosophila variation reveals an excess of high frequency variants that are likely to have been influenced by positive selection.
