Advances in DNA taxonomy (DNTX01)
1st August 2016 - 5th August 2016
Starting from a refresher on approaches to obtain molecular phylogenies, the course will take students all the way to cutting-edge tools in DNA taxonomy.
Species are one of the fundamental units in biology, and their identification is a pivotal step in biodiversity analyses. The rationale of the course is to offer a complete overview of the currently available methods to delineate units of biodiversity starting from DNA sequence data. By the end of the short course, you should have a basic understanding of how common methods work and how to apply them.
