The course is aimed primarily at biology and bioinformatics PhD students or postdocs in the early stages of their research career who already have some familiarity with phylogenetic methods (i.e., have already used some of the computer programs).  Programming experience is not required, although knowledge of R and experience in a scripting language such as python or perl will be very useful.  Candidates without prior experience with the Unix/Linux command line will be required to acquire these skills prior to the course. Training materials and exercises for improving Unix/Linux skills of participants will be provided before the course.
