The National Institute for Computational Sciences

Fast, Free Phylogenies; HPC for Phylogenetics


October 13-15, 2010
Location: NIMBioS, Blount Hall, 1534 White Avenue, Knoxville, Tennessee.

Apply now to attend this tutorial. The tutorial is geared primarily toward biologists but other researchers such as statisticians or mathematicians working in phylogenetics, are encouraged to apply. The tutorial is designed for faculty, postdocs and students who are at least moderately experienced with phylogenetic analysis and who have datasets to run but who are typically running analyses on their own desktops.

Learning can be enhanced for people applying as a team (such as a pairing of a biologist and a statistician who collaborate in their work).
Accepted participants will have the option of receiving instruction in basic unix usage via webinar and self-paced online resources before the actual workshop, so lack of experience in this area should not be a barrier.

If needed, applicants may request travel and lodging support. Participation is limited, and those selected to attend will be notified within two weeks of the application deadline.

Application deadline: August 27, 2010
