Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Evolutionary analyses using free software packages (e.g., PAUP, RAxML, BEAST) with emphasis on phylogeny reconstruction, molecular dating and analysis of phylogenomic data, including coalescent methods.

Assessment and permitted materials

One home exercise per unit, each to be documented in the form of a short and concise protocol. Each protocol can get (on average) maximally 5 points, totaling 40 points for the entire course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Minimum requirement for positive credit: 20.5 points
(credit key:
0-20 points: 5
20.5-25 points: 4
25.5-30 points: 3
30.5-35 points: 2
35.5-40 points: 1)

Examination topics

Presentation (20%) and practical exercise (80%)
