Statistical and Mathematical Modeling in Biological Applications

The seminar series Statistical and Mathematical Modeling in Biological Applications (SaMMBA) features monthly lectures and discussions with leading modelers in biological sciences. Presentations are in English or French and target an interdisciplinary audience. Seminars are held on the campus of Institut Pasteur. Access is free. However, to enter the campus, one needs a badge that is obtained at the main gate in exchange of a piece of ID (passport, citizen card or driver licence).

The strange case of the Standard Neutral Model of molecular evolution: when, what and why

 

Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss about the model that is commonly assumed throughout population genetics and more generally molecular evolution, the so-called Standard Neutral Model. I will describe some of its motivations, its underlying assumptions, its forward and backward perspectives, its usage and more importantly its limit. I will illustrate the different points by biological examples and will argue that the use of a unique reference model may obscure our ability to apprehend correctly the evolution of life.
