GMS 6233: Quantitative Models of Protein Evolution and Phylogenetics


Credits: 2                    Grading Scheme: Letter

Prerequisite: Intended for graduate students interested in protein biology.      

Discusses the intricacies and assumptions of methods of phylogenetic analysis from molecular data. Emphasizes the study of the theoretical principles underlying models of protein evolution, as used in phylogenetic analysis. Examines biological principles and mathematical tools used to model protein evolution in inferring phylogenetic relations. Develops quantitative models of protein evolution and studies algorithmic applications of existing models. Interactive lectures in a Socratic format, tailored to the progress of the students.
