How Many Subpopulations Is Too Many? Exponential Lower Bounds for Inferring Population Histories
RECOMB, pp. 136-157, 2019.
Reconstruction of population histories is a central problem in population genetics. Existing coalescent-based methods, like the seminal work of Li and Durbin (Nature, 2011), attempt to solve this problem using sequence data but have no rigorous guarantees. Determining the amount of data needed to correctly reconstruct population histories...More
