Title:  Chisquared test and other statistical methods 
Speaker: 
Paul Lu

Abstract 
The Pearson's chisquared test is a popular statistical method used in biological experiments to determine the independance of two events. I will discuss how it is applied to the casecontrol data in the paper Mapping Trait Loci by Use of Inferred Ancestral Recombination Graphs to determine statistical associations between a loci and the disease. And try to answer the question of why applying a chisquared test on Ancestral Recombination Graphs would produce more accurate results than applying the chisquared tests on just the casecontrol data.
