Model for fluctuating selection

Is there any mathematical model to predict the behaviour and long-term consequence of counter-acting selection at different time scale? For example, let's consider the bi-allelic gene $A$, with ...

Visualisation of phylogeography

I am working on phylogeography on one model species and I am a beginner. You can imagine one species that came on locality more than 5 mya (million years ago). It was a good environment, so the ...

Experimental techniques to measure protein-protein and protein-ligand structure and dynamics

We would like to compare our simulation results with experimentation. When one wants to follow experimentally the dynamics (and possibly structure) of protein-protein or protein-ligand docking ...

Reverse complement of reconstruction model for assembling reads

One way to assemble fragments produced by DNA sequencing (often called reads) is to seek for the shortest common superstring that contains all the reads of a given set of reads. One model for this ...
