22nd Advanced Phylogenetics Workshop in FABI 2015-11-19
The 22nd Advanced Phylogenetics Workshop took place in FABI from 9 to 13 November 2015. The workshop was presented under the leadership of Dr Martin Coetzee (CTHB / TPCP) with the assistance of Dr Jane Wright and Ms Marike Palmer (CTHB / TPCP). Thirteen people participated in the workshop, six were PhD and MSc students from FABI while the remainder were researchers and students from outside of FABI.
The workshop provided attendees with hands-on experience in the different software that is currently used to infer phylogenies. The theory underlying the different phylogenetic methods was also discussed. These evoked enthusiastic discussions from the participants, with many contributing their points of view. The participants are wished the very best for their future phylogenetic studies and research, and we hope to see several many publications where their newly acquired skills are applied in good journals where their newly acquired skills are applied.
