Computational Molecular Evolution
European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) - Training Room 1 - Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge,  CB10 1SD, United Kingdom
13th 24th May

The need for phylogenetic comparisons of molecular sequences has been increasing steadily with the explosive growth of genomic sequence data. Estimation of species phylogenies and species divergence times, inference of population demographic processes and migration patterns, and delineation of species boundaries are central to our understanding of biodiversity and to interpreting genomic sequence data. Furthermore, molecular evolutionary analyses can provide important insights into the evolutionary process of sequences and genes: for example, detecting adaptive molecular evolution may be useful to disentangle viral infections and dynamics.
