## Optional Tutorial: Phylodynamics of Infectious Diseases

Many students are interested in Bayesian methods for understanding epidemiology. There are some great tools for applying these methods, including BEAST2:

- Alexei Drummand & Remco Bouckaert's BEAST2 tutorial on: Measurably evolving populations, estimating rates, and Bayesian skyline plots
- Trevor Bedford's tutorial on (using BEAST1): Inferring spatiotemporal dynamics of the H1N1 influenza pandemic from sequence data
