These courses are supported by our NIGMS grant; interdisciplinary and collaborative in nature, with students and instructors from three relevant disciplines: statistics, computer science, and the life sciences. Students will be introduced to the basics of phylogenetics and phylogenomics from the perspectives of all three disciplines, and will gain more in-depth knowledge through instruction and assignments tailored to their own areas of specialization. Projects that team students with complementary skills will illustrate the interdisciplinary nature of this science and the potential that can be realized through such collaborations.
