I am giving a 1.5 hour talk on Bioinformatics in which I would like to cover the following topics.
- Various schemes for constructing phylogenetic trees: salient features, pros and cons.
- Available tools for analysing sequence data.
- Querying Public Sequence databases.
The talk is aimed at Biology PhD students with generally no programming background. What tools or websites would you cover given the time constraints? Anything that you think a biologist should know but I am missing in the above short list?
