Course title: DNA-sequence data and phylogenies in biodiversity

When: 15-18 july 2019

Where: University of Lodz (Poland)

Instructor: Dr. Diego Fontaneto

Overview: This course will introduce scientists interested in biodiversity to the use of DNA-sequence data to address questions that cannot be addressed by using only morphological and ecological data in their studies. After a short introduction on how to obtain DNA sequences and reliable molecular phylogenies, the focus of the questions that could be addressed will be on taxonomy, community ecology, and comparative methods.


Understand how to read, interpret and obtain molecular phylogenies, with a focus on the concepts and rationale behind phylogenetic methods

Learn tools from DNA taxonomy

Learn how to include phylogenies in the analyses of community ecology and in comparative analyses

Hand-on experience on all the steps

Being comfortable with using R when including molecular phylogenies in ecological analyses
