4 Content and topics The topics to be covered in the lectures will be: Introduction to molecular evolution Methods for sequence alignment Methods of phylogenetic reconstruction (parsimony, neighbor joining, maximum likelihood, Bayesian inference) Phylogenomics and comparative genomics Supertrees Editing and managing large trees Biogeography/phylogeography Networks Tutorials will be conducted to allow the workshop members to get familiar with the distinct software packages that will be used to analyze and/or process the data in the course of the workshop. Among the distinct software and databases that will be used are: ClustalX, Clustal W, T-Coffee, Muscle, MAFFT, SeaView, Jalview, Genedoc (creation of multiple alignments and manual refinement) MrBayes, RAxML, CLustal X, Mega ( phylogenetic inference) Phylograph (tree editing and management) ARB (package for phylogenetic data analysis) Silva Gypsy Database (GyDB) PhylomeDB

9 Getting there The course will take place at Vivero Empresarial, Parc Cientific Universitat de València C/ Catedrático Agustín Escardino, nº Paterna Valencia If you are hosted at IBIS hotel, you can get the Scientific Park (in native language Parc Cientific) easily taking the metro (subway) to Mas Rosari. You have a subway station close to IBIS at the 16 avinguda de les Corts Valencianes facing the Wellness Center.
10 It is quite easy, just follow the line traced in red. Enter this station and take the subway to The Empalme where you should to get off the subway and then to take the Tranvia towards Mas Rosari (after Canal 9) which is a small node of the tranvia called Santa Gemma-Parc Cientific which is the station node of destination. Here you have a schema of the tranvia network to the empalme to Santa Gemma-Parc Cientific.
11 Here you have a screenshot of Santa Gemma-Parc Cientific node When arriving there you must walk a bit (it is just a few meters do not worry) following the red line I tracebelow until arriving to the Socialnest Building which where we are.
12 Here you a have a capture of the entrance hall of the Vivero where the course will take place. This is how the entrance looks like..
