The MEEP Lab is running the 13th annual Sydney Phylogenetics Workshop on 27–29 July. This is a free online workshop that will provide an introduction to phylogenetic analysis using maximum-likelihood and Bayesian methods.
The workshop will be attended by 100 registered participants from 62 institutions in 21 countries.
Workshop lectures will be given by MEEP Lab members Yasmin Asar and Simon Ho. In addition, Fred Jaya and Minh Bui from the Australian National University will give talks on phylogenetic data and maximum-likelihood phylogenetic inference.
Day 1 of the workshop will cover interpreting phylogenetic trees, molecular data, evolutionary models, and phylogenetic methods, and maximum-likelihood analysis using MEGA. Day 2 will provide an introduction to maximum-likelihood analysis using IQ-TREE, as well as Bayesian inference. On Day 3 the focus will be on molecular dating and phylogenomics (using ASTRAL).
