2013 Workshop on Molecular Evolution, Český Krumlov, Czech Republic

Dates: 20 January - 1 February, 2013

Application Deadline: 15 November is the preferred application deadline, after which time people will be admitted to the course following application review by the admissions committee. However, later applications will certainly be considered.

The Workshop on Molecular Evolution consists of a series of lectures, demonstrations and computer laboratories that cover theoretical and conceptual aspects of molecular evolution with a strong emphasis on data analysis. The Workshop has two focus areas: molecular phylogenetics and population genetics. While ultimately different disciplines, several theoretical and statistical approaches are shared. Exposure to both disciplines stimulates the production of new research ideas which may have otherwise not been previously appreciated.

A majority of the schedule is dedicated to hands-on learning activities designed by faculty and the Workshop Team. This interactive experience provides Workshop participants with the practical experience required to meet the challenges presented by modern genomic sciences.

Topics to be covered include:
- Detection of orthology
- Multiple sequence alignment
- The use of maximum likelihood in phylogenetics
- Phylogenetic model selection
- Detection of Selection
- Bayesian inference in phylogenetics
- Phylogenetic signal
- Coalescent theory
- Genome Evolution

Scholarships: A limited number of scholarships will be provided to help offset the costs of participating in the Workshop. More details about these opportunities will be made available in the very near future. In the meantime, we still encourage you to apply.
