For the second year in a row, NESCent will offer a summer short course in Computational Phyloinformatics. This 10-day course will focus on how to script large-scale and complex analyses, as well as how to write your own scripts and programs to address questions in phylogenomics. This year's course emphasizes hands-on training in Perl, Java, and R, three of the most popular languages in scripting and programming phylogenetic or comparative analysis workflows. Students will learn how to write basic phylogenetic or comparative analysis scripts in a biological context.

The course is intended for graduate students, post-docs, and researchers in biology who are interested in developing skills in phyloinformatics. It will be offered at NESCentís facilities in Durham, NC and will run from July 24th to August 4th, 2008.
