Biology: Probabilistic Modeling of Molecular Evolution (AgentSheets, Excel, R)
SESSION: Biology: Probabilistic Modeling of Molecular Evolution (AgentSheets, Excel, R)
EVENT TYPE: Communities, Education
TIME: 2:00PM - 3:00PM
ABSTRACT: The Jukes-Cantor model is the most basic probabilistic model of character evolution in biological sequences. This session will present the derivation of this model and implementation in three different modeling environments. More elaborate models of molecular evolution, how they might implemented, and their utility in molecular phylogenetics will also be considered.
