- Slatkin1991?: Shows , where is probability of IBD for two alleles draw from the same population, is the probability of IBD for two alleles drawn from different populations, is the mean time to coalescent for two alleles drawn from the same population, and is the mean time for two alleles drawn from different populations.
- Excoffier1992: Introduces AMOVA, an extension of Cockerham1969? and Cockerham1973? (also see Weir1984?, Long1986?) for the ANOVA of gene frequencies, to the case of molecular data. It works by reducing the molecular data to pairwise distance estimates, ideally trying to estimate the number of mutations separating every pair of haplotypes.l

- Yang2010c?: heritability estimation based on IBS sharing from population samples instead of family-based methods; better because shared environment events and dominance and epistatis effects are minimized

- Browning2013b?: IBD-based heritability picks up effects of rare variants (Zaitlen2013?), but misses deep coinheritance, and thus loses some precision.

: population genetics of
-element in D. melanogaster
uses various population genetics methods to discern the timing and growth of a transposon element family. The statistics are fairly standard, appearing Watterson's diversity, Tajima's D, Fu's F test, etc.
