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.
4. Coalescent methods
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.
