Dear all

So here's a question for you: Say we know that the underlying structure of a 
system is very complex, would a predictor built from a complex model deliver 
better accuracy than one built from a simple model? Sven Stringer will be 
discussing this issue next week, using the following paper as a basis for the 

"Genome-enabled prediction of genetic values using radial basis function neural 
González-Camacho et al (2012)
Theoretical Applied Genetics (DOI 10.1007/s00122-012-1868-9)

As usual:

Time - 11am Thursday 24 May
Place - 7th floor seminary room, QBI

I can hardly wait. See you there
