Importance sampling on the coalescent with recombination

Abstract:

Performing inference on contemporary samples of homologous DNA sequence data is an important task. By assuming a stochastic model for ancestry, one can make full use of observed data by sampling from the distribution of genealogies conditional upon the sample configuration. A natural such model is Kingman's coalescent, with numerous extensions to account for additional biological phenomena. However, in this model the distribution of interest cannot be written down analytically, and so one ...
