Genome diversity in the Neolithic Globular Amphorae culture and the spread of Indo European languages

PMCID: 5719168
PMID: 29167359
DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2017.1540
call_split See protocol

[…] We compared different demographic models, each characterized by a different set of migration events, via approximate Bayesian computation via random forest (ABC-rf) (see electronic supplementary material for details and electronic supplementary material, table S8). In all cases, we assumed some level of genetic continuity across three geographical regions […]


Genetic footprint of population fragmentation and contemporary collapse in a freshwater cetacean

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5663847
PMID: 29089536
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14812-z

[…] on a logistic regression on 1% PODs producing SS values closest to the observed ones after a Linear Discriminant Analysis (ABC-LDA) as a pre-processing step and the recently introduced Random Forest (ABC-RF) procedure,; (3) evaluate the confidence in scenario choice by estimating the type-I and type-II error rates based on simulated PODs using the ABC-LDA, as well as the prior error rate from the […]


Deciphering the Routes of invasion of Drosophila suzukii by Means of ABC Random Forest

Mol Biol Evol
PMCID: 5400373
PMID: 28122970
DOI: 10.1093/molbev/msx050

[…] To the best of our knowledge, the present study is the first to use the recently developed ABC-RF method () to test competing models characterized by different levels of complexity. To compare ABC-RF to a more standard ABC method, we carried out a subset of model choice analyses using both […]

PMCID: 5374421
PMID: 28134835
DOI: 10.3390/ph10010017

[…] s and young scientists, two awards were attributed for the best oral flash presentation and for the best poster presentation. The first award was attributed to Mary McKee (Department of Chemistry and ABCRF, University College Cork, Western Road, Cork, Ireland) for her presentation entitled “Synthesis and Evaluation of Novel Benzofuran Conjugates as Potential Anticancer Agents”. Alexia Ville (SONAS […]
