The advancement of sequencing technologies has resulted in the generation of sequencing data at a scale without precedence. Importantly, such data cannot just enlighten us about the biology of individual species, but can also be used to infer phylogeny, to assess evolutionary trends, and to study the changes within genomes over time. The lecture will provide insight into the molecular principles underlying the evolution of DNA, proteins and genomes. Different ways how to perform phylogenetic analyses will be discussed. Bioinformatics methods to study molecular evolution will be presented.

Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen (erwartete Kenntnisse)



The students will obtain an overview of the molecular concepts underlying evolution, and will obtain knowledge on how bioinformatics can be used to perform phylogenetic analyses and evolutionary studies.
