The purpose of this project is to utilize high-throughput computing to conduct statistical genetic analysis on metapopulation dynamics of the invasive plant, Silene latifolia. The programs were not coded in his lab. He requested the help of UVa Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering (UVACSE) in in running his analyses.
