Enrollment for the 2010 Bodega Bay Phylogenetics Workshop Now Open!
Enrollment for the 11th annual Applied Phylogenetics Workshop was announced earlier today. The intensive week-long workshop will be held at the scenic Bodega Bay Marine Laboratory from March 7–13, 2010. The course assembles a team of instructors to provide lectures and hands-on tutorials on a diverse range of topics in the field of phylogenetic biology, including Bayesian and maximum likelihood estimation of phylogeny, divergence times, character evolution, and diversification rates. Additional details and application forms can be obtained from the course website here, and are due by January 8, 2010. It's sure to be a blast!
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
