BIOL-3202 Phylogenesis Systematics - Theory

Phylogenesis is one of the topics within biological sciences with the greatest spectrum in terms of diversity of study subjects, scientific productivity and impact in recent years. The phylogenic reconstruction is a commonly used tool within a broad range of disciplines associated with the evolutionary biology of organisms, as well as in various biomedical and microbiological applications. Phylogenesis Systematic, after several weeks on its basic aspects, will study in depth some of its applications to thus maximize the understanding of how useful this tool is, while the student understands the different tools and methods in phylogenetics. The course ends with research seminars where the students, independently conduct a reanalysis of one or more phylogenetic studies in the group or topic of their choice.
