EEB462H1: Phylogenetic Inference: Methods and Applications


The representation of the evolutionary relationships in the form of phylogenetic trees has become a fundamental tool in many branches of biology. This course is an introduction to the core concepts and methods of phylogenetic reconstruction including parsimony, likelihood, and Bayesian techniques, as well as advanced topics such as divergence time estimation, species-tree inference, and species delimitation. Through a combination of lectures, discussions, and computer labs, students will master the theory and practice of phylogenetics.
