Workshop: Computational Molecular Evolution, Nov 21-Dec 2, 2016
Computational Molecular Evolution
Many genomes from different species have already been sequenced and soon genomic information from essentially all organisms will be available. Comparing genes and genomic elements from these genomes will be increasingly important and this computational course covers the basic methods that are needed to estimate the evolutionary forces of selection and mutation that have acted on such sequences. This will include methods of sequence alignments, phylogenetic reconstruction and phylogenetic analyses that allow to identify e.g. positive selection that has acted on genes or genomic regions. A lecture will introduce the necessary theory and computer practical will provide hands-on training. Basic knowledge in computational biology is desirable, but not required for attendance. Students shall be assessed via a final research report.
