New Class! Phylogenetics: The Science of Organizing the Biological World

Historically, evolutionary relationships were determined by what an organism looks like, or its phenotype. With modern DNA analysis technology we are able to classify relationships based on genes, or genotype. How can we use Phylogenetics, the study of evolutionary classification systems, to learn about plants, animals and microbes in the world around us? In this workshop, we will learn about evolutionary history by looking at characteristics of organisms from today and how the environment shapes everything around us.

Join us and Dr. Joshua Schraiber, a computational biologist working to unravel the basis of functional genomic evolution in yeast and humans through a combination of mathematical modeling, big data analysis and data generation!
