Advanced courses

Recent developments in molecular systematics

November 26 - December 5, 2007.
Zoology/Systematics and Biodiversity, Göteborg University, Sweden.
The course will be held at the Marine Biological Station at Espegrend, University of Bergen, Norway.
Coordinated by Per Sundberg, Göteborg University and Christoffer Schander (co-organizer), University of Bergen.

We are sorry to announce that this course is cancelled.

Course description:
This course in molecular systematics and phylogeny estimation covers five themes:

1. Biogeographical analysis within a phylogentic framework using Bayesian statistics.
2. Networks in phylogeny estimation.
3. Phylogeography.
4. Coalescent methods
5. Supertrees.

The course mixes lectures with practical sessions to give the students both a theoretical background to the field and hands on experience with relevant computer programs. The teachers are among those developing these programs and theories ensuring that the students will learn about the latest develoments.

The course will be held at Espegrend biological station, Bergen, 26/11 – 5/12 2007. Travel and accommodation are financially supported by the Nordic Marine Academy for successful applicants from NMA member institutions.
