In recent years, it has become possible to obtain the DNA sequence data of a large number of individuals of the same species. This data set is basically a M (number of samples) x N (number of genomic positions) matrix where each data point is 0 or 1. Using this data set, we try to understand, for example, the relationship between each sample or group of samples, and the population process that has generated the data set. In this talk, I will introduce the basic concepts behind the approaches we use to analyze such data sets.
