Phylogeny inference and data analysis, spring 2013
Basic probabilistics and interest in bio-applications of statistics.
The course is suitable for students with planned orientation to biometry and bioinformatics and also for other students interested in biological applications of statistical inference.
Period III, 4cr lecture/data-analysis module
First lecture Tue 22.1, 14-16 B120, 16- C128
Period IV, 1-5cr project work module
Optional (for extending the 5cr to 10cr) project topics will be discussed at the end of III period. Working is according to student´s own time schedule.
Past practice on phylogenetics was to describe relationships among species within the disciplines systematics and taxonomy. Today the scope is much wider. Phylogenetics is used as a necessary tool in all kind of bioscience research questions: relationships among genes, gene families, alleles, cell lines, various genomic components, histories of populations, evolutionary and epidemiological dynamics of bacteria and viruses, etc.. Phylomics is the natural extension of genomics and metagenomics, phylotyping the current way of understanding ecosystems within and outside organisms (environments). During the course we familiarize with applications, statistical frameworks, analyse data during computer class sessions by using several software-packages.
