When: November 7, 2014, 8:30 – 5 pm
Where: Memorial Student Center (MSC), Room 2400
The focus of the OSOS workshop will be using open source methodologies like R in phylogenetics and molecular evolution. The workshop will be *all day* and will include these great module leaders and modules:
Rebecca Clark: Introduction to OSOS, and R basics: the interface, loading data, basic statistics and graphs
Therese Catanach: Using R in Phylogenetics
Luciano Cosme: Next Generation Sequencing – Data processing and gene expression
Therese Catanach: Phylogenetic and Biogeographic assessments in R
The OSOS workshop will conclude with a super-awesome dinner/evening social hosted by EEBISO and EEB. Check your email soon for announcements and updates about the social.
