Computational Molecular Evolution
10-21 April 2011
Hinxton, Cambridge, UK
Deadline for applications 26 November 2010
This joint Wellcome Trust-EMBL-EBI advanced course aims to provide researchers with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to carry out molecular evolutionary analysis on their own data, as well as on data drawn from sequence databases. The course will combine basic assumptions and ideas fundamental to the field with discussion of cutting-edge methodologies, and is therefore relevant to researchers with a range of different experience levels.
- interpretation of molecular phylogenetic trees and sequence alignments
- genomics resources, sequence searching and sequence alignments
- phylogeny reconstruction and models
- hypothesis testing in phylogenetics
- coalescent model and inference from population data.
