Hi folks,

EMBO are funding the registration fee, accommodation and food for a small
number of students that wish to attend the EMBO World programme course on
the theory and practice of Phylogenetic Analysis and its application in a
high throughput framework.

Before applying, please take a look at the website for the course:


EMBO might also fund the travel costs, but this will be a separate
application to EMBO.  The closing date for applicants is October 1st. We ar=
