I'm Vince Buffalo, a postdoc studying evolutionary genetics in the Kern and Ralph labs at the University of Oregon. I did my PhD with Graham Coop, in the Population Biology Graduate Group at UC Davis. Before graduate school, I worked as a bioinformatician, and I wrote the O'Reilly book Bioinformatics Data Skills sharing the skills I learned. I use statistics, probability, and computers to learn about evolution. » read more

The first post, is meant to introduce the historical context and concepts like linked selection and polygenic adaptation to a non-scientist, and the second post, below, describes our work on temporal covariance as a signature of polygenic linked selection and its application to four evolve-and-reseqeunce data sets.
