Phylogenetic data analysis using R (PHYL02)

29th January 2018 - 2nd February 2018

£260.00 – £460.00

Course Overview:

The main objectives of the course are to teach the theoretical bases of phylogenetic analysis, and to give the ability to initiate a phylogenetic analysis starting from the files of molecular sequences until the interpretation of the results and the graphics. The introduction will cover a brief historical background and an overview of the different methods of phylogenetic inference. Different kinds of data will be considered, but with a special emphasis on DNA sequences. The software used will be based on R and several specialized packages (particularly ape and phangorn). Other software will be used (e.g., MUSCLE or Clustal) called from R. Overall, the course will cover almost all aspects of phylogenetic inference from reading/downloading the data to plotting the results.

Intended Audience

PhD and postgraduate students, researchers and engineers in evolutionary biology, systematics, population genetics, ecology, conservation.
