Getting Started

For this tutorial, most of the work can be completed on your own machines using your favorite text editor. Then, you need to move the script files you create to the MBL cluster and get the data files.

Running RevBayes on the MBL Cluster

On the course cluster, make a copy of the lab directory for your analysis:

cp -R /class/molevol-software/revbayes_lab/ .

Enter your new copy of the lab directory:

cd revbayes_lab

Execute RevBayes:
