1. This presentation was part of 2015 NSF SSB Workshop, Phylogeography and ABC approaches track, held on Friday June 26, 2015 during Evolution 2015

    During this session, we will explore some of the basics of data manipulation in R. The students will learn how to load, select and plot georeferenced information, as well as how to adjust ENMs. For this, students will be provided with a real dataset and they will model and project the ENM for the species in question. Projections will be done on current climates as well as paleoclimatic reconstructions. We will explore how these outputs can be used in a phylogeographic context, and how they can be exploited for informing ABC and ML-based phylogeographic tests.

  2. This presentation was part of 2015 NSF SSB Workshop, Phylogeography and ABC approaches track, held on Friday June 26, 2015 during Evolution 2015

    This session will describe an approximate likelihood approach to comparing a variety of phylogeographic models, as well as talk about the number of possible phylogeographic models and comparing models using AIC. Students will learn how to do these exercises in R.

  3. This presentation was part of 2015 NSF SSB Workshop, Phylogeography and ABC approaches track, held on Friday June 26, 2015 during Evolution 2015

    This session will introduce basic operations in the Linux environment, programming in the R environment, and theoretical basis of model-based inference using Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC). The students will perform practical exercises to learn how to perform coalescent simulations and use DNA polymorphism empirical data and ABC to compare alternative phylogeographical scenarios, and estimate parameters in natural populations.

  4. This presentation was part of 2015 NSF SSB Workshop, Phylogeography and ABC approaches track, held on Friday June 26, 2015 during Evolution 2015

    This session aims to introduce students to several approaches for exploring non-model empirical systems using demographic models. Topics covered include: simulation of data using ms, hypothesis testing using parametric simulations, and posterior predictive simulations. In addition to hands-on activities, philosophical aspects related to phylogeography will be discussed.

  5. This presentation was part of 2015 NSF SSB Workshop, Phylogenetic Comparative Methods track, held on Friday June 26, 2015 during Evolution 2015

    This section will provide an introduction to using R for comparative analyses. Uyeda will provide an overview of the basics of the R language as well as to working with tree objects in R including: reading in phylogenetic and trait data, preparing data for analyses, manipulating phylogenetic trees and plotting trees and trait information. Uyeda will also provide tips on programming style and organization. Students will work through a number of examples of comparative analyses including fitting models of trait evolution to both discrete and continuous data and estimating correlations between traits. The focus of this section will be on the mechanics of actually doing the analysis but Uyeda will also provide background about the models that are being fit and how best to draw evolutionary inferences from them.

The Society for Systematic Biologists (SSB), with support from the National Science Foundation, will hold a one-day workshop on Friday, June 26, 2015, before the start of the 2015 Evolution meetings. This workshop for graduate students will develop computational skills in systematic biology and includes presentations and activities suitable for beginners. The schedule includes introductory sessions (computing in R, open access resources) and two tracks (phylogenetics & comparative methods, phylogeography).
