Bayesian Recombination Detection Modeling And Application, Fang Fang
Retrospective Theses and Dissertations
As a key evolutionary process, recombination shapes the genetic structure of virus populations. The increased availability of virus sequences provides a chance to study virus recombination through molecular data. Many statistical methods have been developed, and a lot of the methods are phylogenetic-based. My research focuses on recombination modeling and data analysis;I first apply an existing phylogenetic-base method, Bayesian dual change-point model (DMCP), to investigate the role of representative data types for recombination study. We conclude that consensus sequences are an all-around robust representative of virus genotypes. Using consensus data we study recombination of all full-length hepatitis B virus ...
