Outline for distance course:
The course has no mandatory meeting. Communication between teachers and students takes place through the virtual learning environment Moodle. Some exercises that require special software are either done on computers at the Evolutionary Biological Centre in Uppsala or on a server (which you can connect to). This requires a computer with internet connection.
Bioinformatic Analyses I. English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden ("English 6").
About the course:
This course builds on Bioinformatic Analyses I and primarily focuses on bioinformatic analyses in evolutionary biology. The course primarily deals with phylogenetic analysis in a wide sense, but also multivariate statistics, geographic information systems (GIS), and usage of databases for biodiversity studies.
