Biology: Molecular Phlyogenetics MEGA 5, Biology Workbench
SESSION: Biology: Molecular Phyogenetics
EVENT TYPE: Communities, Education
TIME: 3:30PM - 5:00PM
ABSTRACT: Quantifying similarities and differences between organisms based on morphological features has always been a tricky business. With the abundance of biological sequence data, and rigorous quantitative methods the reconstruction of evolutionary relationships has become possible across evolutionary distances, both large and small, that were not possible previously. This session will introduce some of the most common methods for inferring phylogenies using the MEGA software.
