Keynote talk on coalescent hidden Markov models and great ape speciation
Wednesday this week I'm giving a talk at the Danish Society for Computer Science. I was asked to give the keynote talk at this years general assembly before they hand out this year's Best Thesis Award.
I'm tired of talking about my main project -- association mapping -- so I decided to give a talk on our CoalHMM work (although I am only working on that a small percentage of my time).
The slides file is too big to upload to slideshare, but if my flash hack works you should see them below:
The last couple of presentations I've made I have been using the Keynote program on my Mac. I'm really happy with the program. It makes it very easy to put together pretty presentations (if I say so myself) with very little work. Especially its handling of graphics impresses me. Compared to using OpenOffice, as I usually did before getting the Mac, there's essentially no work involved in including graphics. Automatic masking and alpha channels beats modifying images in Gimp any day!
I couldn't really figure out how to put presentations on my homepage, though. Keynote files are really directories, so you cannot just copy them to the homepage directory. I found out, though, that if a Mac downloads a zip'ed Keynote file it will just open it in Keynote, so I guess that is the way to do that.
