Project Title: Building and analyzing the fish tree of life
Project Contact: Michael Alfaro (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We are currently assembling the largest phylogenetic tree of vertebrates based upon published gene sequences and seek one or more students to assist with scripting and analysis. This project involves creating multi gene alignments from genetic databases, reconciling Genbank taxonomy with published classifications, phylogenetic reconstruction, and macroevolutionary analyses.
experience with some programming languages (python especially helpful)
Possibility of Funding: No
