Instructor(s): Wayne Xu, MSI

Sequences evolutionary analysis is an important method for exploring the relatedness of species or proteins. There are many software tools that use different algorithms. PAUP (Phylogenetic Analysis Using Parsimony) is a widely used package for the inference of evolutionary trees. The new version 4.0 includes maximum likelihood, parsimony, and distance methods.

In this tutorial, we will demonstrate the parsimony, maximum likelihood, and distance methods of PAUP using test sequence data.
