THE ESTIMATION OF GENOTYPE-PHENOTYPE RELATIONSHIPS FROM FAMILY DATA AND OF ANIMAL ABUNDANCE FROM CAPTURE-RECAPTURE DATA WITH FREQUENT CAPTURE OCCASIONS: A SEMIPARAMETRIC APPROACH

Grant number: DP0450547

Abstract

Semiparametric statistical methods allow researchers to only model those features of their data that are of interest, but still allow standard statistical inferences to be made about these features. The aim here is to develop non standard applications of semiparametric statistical methods in the estimation of genotype-phenotype relationships from family data and the estimation of animal abundance from capture-recapture data. The methods will be applied to real data and their theoretical properties developed. The practical significance of the project is the flexible new statistical methods that will become available to researchers. The theoretical significance will be the insights into semipa..
