Predicting gain whilst managing diversity... from quadratic indices to entropy
Friday 9 August 2002 at 15.00, JCMB 5327

Abstract

Genetics has for a long time been able to predict gain in selection but not rate of loss of diversity, now it can manage diversity but cant predict gain. Whilst solving a quadratic form may be the best solution for maximising gain, what is the outcome likely to be and can entropy help in providing the answer.
