Dates:from 23rd June to 25th June, 2010
More Information and application
The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to the analysis of phylogenetic trees. It will cover a broad range of tasks that are usually required in any phylogenomic analysis: tree rooting, prediction of orthology and paralogy relationships, tree annotation, calculating distances among sequences or species, tree pruning, trees comparison, and tree visualization. The use of large scale phylogenomic resources, such as PhylomeDB or Ensembl Compara, will be also tackled through examples and exercises. This course will be mostly practical and will be focused on solving real life examples.
