WHS 12th International workshop in Phylogenetic Methods, Xalapa, México

The Willi Hennig Society

12th International workshop in Phylogenetic Methods

Willi Hennig Society

23 to 27 May, 2011.

Instituto de Ecología, AC.
Xalapa, Ver (México).

Announcement # 1:
I am glad to announce dates for the WHS workshop in Xalapa (México).

This course will be possible thanks to the support from INECOL and WHS.

The Willi Hennig Society (WHS) has organized several international workshops on cladistics (Finland, Czech Republic, US). In Latin-America one has been offered in Argentina (2002) and two in Brazil (2008, 2010). This will be the first held in Mexico.


The workshop will be presented by a combination of at least four or five professors, all members of WHS.

  • John W. Wenzel (Carnegie Museum of Natural History, coordinator).

Day 1: Introduction
  • Logic and history of phylogenetics
  • Optimization and tree search
  • Ambiguity, Weighting, Support
  • Using WinClada, Nona
  • Advanced search strategy, TNT
Day 2: Morphology
  • Morphological character coding
  • Cladistic character coding
  • More powerful searches
  • Diagnosing troublesome results
Day 3: DNA sequence data
  • Handling DNA sequences (GenBank, Muscle)
  • Alignment
Day 4: Dynamic Homology
  • Dynamic homology
  • Direct Optimization and Alignment
Day 5: Likelihood and Bayesian methods
  • Model-based phylogenetics
  • Model-based Exercises, Garli, MrBayes
This workshop is open to participants from Mexico, Latinamerican countries, but also to students from the US/Canada, Europe, and elsewhere. Essentially this is offered in substitution of the famous "OSU workshop on phylogenetic methods", which no longer will be offered there.
Lectures will be in English.
It is expected that participating students are already familiar with basic phylogenetic methods.

Cost for the workshop is us $300. This only includes registration fee. It does not include transportation, accommodations or food.

A limited number of Fellowships will be offered by the WHS on a competitive basis. WHS Fellowships will cover registration cost only. Enrollees will be responsible for cost of transportation, accommodation and meals.

The workshop will be limited to 25 participants.
All complete applications will be evaluated
by an ad hoc committee. Registration will be open only for accepted participants. [update: link to list of admitted participants added March 18].

Further information:
Announcement of dates for the reception of an "Application form" (January 2011), notification of acceptance (March 2011), course registration (April), and additional details of the course and travel advice will be posted later in this blog and a web site for the workshop at the server.
Meanwhile, if you have any inquiry, please post a "comment" to this "Entry".
