Accommodating the Effect of Ancient DNA Damage on Inferences of Demographic Histories

Rambaut, Andrew; Ho, Simon; Drummond, Alexei J.; Shapiro, Beth


DNA sequences extracted from ancient remains are increasingly used to generate large population data sets, often spanning tens of thousands of years of population history. Bayesian coalescent methods such as those implemented in the software package BEAST can be used to estimate the demographic history of these populations, sometimes resulting in complex scenarios of fluctuations in population size, which can be correlated with the timing of environmental events, such as glaciations. Recently,...[Show more]
