This project originated as a collection of R functions written to facilitate teaching evolutionary and population genetics in an upper level university class. It has since then grown to incorporate additional resources. Ultimately, the goal is to create a fully-featured resource that will support self-directed, online, or face-to-face learning in the field. Comments are welcome
The migration to github from Dropbox is underway. The dropdown “Population Genetics with R” gives links to text chapters (they may have a few bad internal links). The R Code dropdown will take you to github repositories containing the raw code for the text and the TeachingPopGen R package.
There are really now two pieces to this project. The first, which is what this page is primarily devoted to, is an online text covering modern population genetics from a data analysis perspective. It is what is available from the menu of this page (in html) form. It was generated in RStudio; the original files can be seen at the PopGenWithR github site. The second piece is the R package TeachingPopGen; it also has a github site (bjcochrane/TeachingPopGen). Feel free to install the latter, using the code
OK, it’s been a while since I’ve done anything on this page, but there is now some progress. I have most of the material I’ve written, up to but not including natural selection and quantitative genetics, available in html versions from the dropdown above. I’m also looking for other resources to add – please feel free to make suggestions.
I had fun talking with a small group of really good people at the first standalone meeting of the Society for Systematic Biologists in Ann Arbor today. I’ve posted the few slides I showed, as well as a brief demonstration of the stuff I really have enjoyed developing in TeachingPopGen; see SSB2015 in the menu above.
