18th International Bioinformatics Workshop on Virus Evolution and Molecular Epidemiology
VEME 2013 will be organized August 25th – August 30th, 2013 at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, U.S.A.
The workshop will have the following modules:
• 'Phylogenetic Inference'module offers the theoretical background and hands-on experience in phylogenetic analysis for those who have little or no prior expertise in sequence analysis.
• 'Evolutionary Hypothesis Testing' module is targeted to participants who are well familiar with alignments and phylogenetic trees, and would like to extend their expertise to likelihood and Bayesian inference in phylogenetics, coalescent and phylogeographic analyses ('phylodynamics') and molecular adaptation.
• 'Large Dataset Analysis' module will cover the more complex analysis of full genomes, huge datasets of pathogens including Next Generation Sequencing data, and combined analyses of pathogen and host. We recommend participants to buy The Phylogenetic Handbook as a guide during the workshop, and to bring their own data set.
Application Deadline is April 30, 2013
