Curso Introducción a la Filogenómica, 1-9 octubre, ONLINE

Estimad@s colegas,

Ya está abierta la inscripción para el curso de Transmitting INTRODUCTION TO PHYLOGENOMICS – 2nd edition. Debido a las restricciones para viajar causados por la pandemia de COVID-19 este curso se impartirá en directo online.

Fechas: 1-9 de octubre, 2020.

Profesorado: Jeremy M Brown (Louisiana State University, USA) y Robert Thomson (University of Hawaii, USA).

Resumen del curso (en inglés, que es el lenguaje en el que se impartirá el curso):


This workshop will introduce participants to the theory and tools for phylogenetic inference in the era of genome sequencing. Course material will focus on statistical methods for phylogeny estimation, software implementing these methods, applications of these methods to large molecular datasets, and discuss trade-offs and tools for improving the accuracy of phylogenomic analyses. In hands-on practical sessions, participants will gain experience working with bioinformatic and statistical tools for analyzing large datasets.
The course is intended to facilitate ongoing or planned phylogenomics projects by students, so they are encouraged to notify instructors in advance about the topics of greatest relevance to their own work.
Example software: RevBayes, IQTree, SVDQuartets, ASTRAL, TreeScaper

LMs4TNT: Java tool to convert xy coordinates to a TNT data block

I am glad to make available a Java program that reads “x, y” coordinates of landmarks and semilandmarks from each specimen (tps or row format), estimates means for each group, and writes blocks of terminal names and the coordinates with the corresponding commands as required by TNT phylogenetic software.

You can download "jt4tnt.class" at the following URL:
Please note that “jt4tnt.class” is a java tool, thus it is platform independent. This program requires Java 6 or later (Java 1.6). Runs from your system command window writing a command line with several expressions separated by a space.

As an example, the following command line will read 300 configurations in a tps file “my300configs.tps”, will calculate means for 10 groups according to the labels in “membership10spp.txt”, and will write these in the output file “my10spp.txt” with all necessary TNT commands:
>java jt4tnt -i my300configs.tps -o my10spp.txt -m membership10spp.tx
There is more info on examples, input data file formats, membership list file, and output files in the website.

I guess you can cite this tool as:
