Now in its 29th year, the MBL's Workshop on Molecular Evolution at Woods Hole presents a series of lectures, discussions, and bioinformatic exercises that span contemporary topics in molecular evolution. The workshop encourages the exchange of ideas among leading theoreticians, software developers, and workshop participants. The workshop serves graduate students, postdoctoral students, and established faculty from around the world. The 2015 Workshop will use computer packages including AWTY, BEAST, BEST, FASTA, FigTree, GARLI, MIGRATE, LAMARC, MAFFT, MP-EST, RevBayes, PAML, PAUP*, STEM, STEM-hy, and SeaView to address the following topics:
Students will work with computer packages on their own laptops and have the opportunity to use the high performance computer clusters at the MBL.
