Instructor(s): Wayne Xu, MSI

Sequence evolutionary analysis is an important solution in exploring the relation of species or proteins. There are many different software options for implementing algorithms, and researchers often encounter a dilemma when choosing between these tools and algorithms.

In this tutorial, we will discuss the three main algorithms (Parsimony, Maximum Likelihood, and Distance Matrix). We will also demonstrate the software using sequence test data.
