You are here: HomeNewsNewsWorkshop: Comparative methods in evolutionary biology

We would like to announce an upcoming intensive workshop on phylogenetic and comparative methods that will take place at the Stazione Zoologica Dohrn in Naples from 5th-7th of December. The workshop will include lectures on the theoretical aspects of generating time-calibrated phylogenies, reconstructing trait evolution and investigating rates of lineage diversification, as well as practical tutorials. The number of participants will be limited to 25, and admission is on a first come, first served basis. No previous experience with R is necessary, but students will be expected to have a basic understanding of molecular evolution.
Registration fees: 100€ (fees include lunches); special price at 50€ for students enrolled at the Universities of Naples (Federico II and Parthenope) with no lunch included
Participants: this workshop is preferentially addressed to PhD students, postdocs and researchers with basic knowledge of phylogeny (sequence alignments, nucleotide substitution models and basic tree building). Max number 25
