Registration is open for the fifth edition of the course PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS USING R, September 3rd-7th, 2018.
INSTRUCTORS: Dr. Emmanuel Paradis (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement, France) and Dr. Klaus Schliep (University of Massachusetts, USA).
More information: https://www.transmittingscience.org/courses/evolution/phylogenetic-analysis-using-r/
This course is for biologists dealing with the analysis of multiple molecular sequences at several levels: Populations, species, clades, communities. These biologists address questions relative to the evolutionary relationships among these sequences, as well as the evolutionary forces structuring biodiversity at different scales. The objectives are: (i) to learn the theoretical bases phylogenetic analysis, (ii) to know how to choose a strategy of molecular data analysis at the inter‐ or intraspecific levels, (iii) to be able to initiate a phylogenetic analysis starting from the files of molecular sequences until the interpretation of the results and the graphics. The software used for this course will be centered on the R language for statistics. This will include the use of specialized packages particularly ape, phangorn, and adegenet.
Requirements: Knowledge of multivariate statistics, phylogenetics and molecular evolution. User level of R.
PLACE: Capellades, Barcelona (Spain).
Organized by: Transmitting Science, Research School in Biosystematics (ForBio) and the Institut Catalá de Paleontologia M. Crusafont.
