This course might be of interest for people in this list: "DNA-sequence data and phylogenies in biodiversity", 15-18 July 2019. For the 1st time we will run this course in Poland (University of Lodz). Instructor: Dr. Diego Fontaneto (CNR, ITALY) This course will introduce scientists interested in biodiversity to the use of DNA-sequence data to address questions that cannot be addressed by using only morphological and ecological data in their studies. After a short introduction on how to obtain DNA sequences and reliable molecular phylogenies, the focus of the questions that could be addressed will be on taxonomy, community ecology, and comparative methods. LEARNING OUTCOMES - Understand how to read, interpret and obtain molecular phylogenies, with a focus on the concepts and rationale behind phylogenetic methods - Learn tools from DNA taxonomy - Learn how to include phylogenies in the analyses of community ecology and in comparative analyses - Hand-on experience on all the steps - Being comfortable with using R when including molecular phylogenies in ecological analyses For more information about the programme, please visit our website: https://www.physalia-courses.org/courses-workshops/course28/ Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us: i...@physalia-courses.org All the best, Carlo -------------------- Carlo Pecoraro, Ph.D Physalia-courses DIRECTOR i...@physalia-courses.org http://www.physalia-courses.org/ Twitter: @physacourses mobile: +49 17645230846 https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/physalia-courses -- MORPHMET may be accessed via its webpage at http://www.morphometrics.org --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "MORPHMET" group.
