Possible projects - Nov 2016

Simulation of large hybridization networks

For example, auto- and allo-polyploidy as well as ordinary speciation, among 300k angiosperms. I have written a simulator, but currently the results are more curious than useful. The process can 'explode', that is, produce an infinite number of species in a finite amount of time. There are several possible limiting factors such as number of chromosomes, amount of DNA, cell size, competition between similar species.

Introgression. Model with migrating gtree branches

The rough idea is described here. Started implementing something like this.

Priors for species delimitation.

The Kirchhoff matrix tree method. The mathematics is cute, but the approach doesn't seem to provide very 'sensible' results. I also have an idea using distances to clusterings.

Alternative to SNAPP model

My notes. I think too similar to De Maio, 2015. Maybe some variants interesting.

A few more ideas
