Dear All, 

 

I am pleased to announce that the following seminars will take place at
the University of Limerick next Wednesday afternoon (March 14th). All
welcome. Instructions for accessing the link are given below

 

Wednesday, March 14th, 2-4pm, GLG043

 

2pm Tony Fitzgerald, University College, Cork

The Incidence and Repetition of Hospital-Treated Deliberate Self Harm:
Findings

 from the World's First National Registry (2003-2009)

 

 Ireland developed the world's first national deliberate self-harm (DSH)
registry to establish 

the incidence of hospital-treated DSH at national level and the spectrum
and pattern of presentations 

with DSH and repetition. The Registry recorded 75,119 DSH presentations
involving 48,206 individuals. 

The association between age, gender, method of self harm, and the number
of previous self harm episode

 and the risk of future DSH was examined using a conditional risk set
analysis. 

 

 

3pm Geoff Nicholls, University of Oxford

Phylogenetic inference for stochastic Dollo models

 

We describe a new class of stochastic models suitable for 

binary data trait data. These models play a similar role to the GTR 

base-subsitution models used in statistical inference for genealogy 

from amino acid base sequence data. 

 

Binary trait data are binary sequence data. Each taxon is described by 

listing, for each of a number of traits, whether the taxon possess or
lacks 

the given trait. Gene content data can be of this type. In the
applications of interest, 

a trait is a unique innovation, passed down the lineages of a genealogy.
The trait may 

be displayed by several taxa. A trait may be lost, and once lost in an
ancestor 

cannot be regained in descendents.  The models are homoplasy-free and
can be 

thought of as a stochastic realisation of the Dollo principal. We give
models and 

fitting algorithms for stochastic Dollo models.

 

Binary trait data are common in phylogenetic studies of cultural traits.

We illustrate the ideas we describe on lexical trait data gathered on a
set of

Indo-European languages. We report estimates of the phylogenetic
structure

of the Indo-European languages. Known elements of the phylogeny can be
used

for checking. In prediction-validation tests, just three of thirty true
phylogenetic 

features were incorrectly rejected.

 

There are three ways to connect to the HEAnet MCU for making multipoint
calls and you should forward this information to your contact in NUIG.

1.       Using the GDS Number.
The GDS number for the one of the UL virtual meeting rooms is
003530110051108.
This virtual meeting room does not require a PIN for access.

2.       Using the MCU gateway IP Address.
The IP address of the MCU is 193.1.31.196 
To access the UL virtual meeting room,
either use the # button on the VC remote control to access the keypad
and dial 108# 
or follow the voice instructions from the MCU to use the FAR control and
the up or down controls and the select button to select "University of
Limerick" from the list.

3.       Using ISDN.
The ISDN number for the MCU is +353 (0)1 4490889.
The MCU gateway will answer and request that the extension be dialled
followed by the # sign, in this case 7108#.
The ISDN connection can be used for voice only calls from a telephone to
a multipoint videoconference.
