Contents Notes
Basic concepts of molecular evolution / Anne-Mieke Vandamme -- Sequence databases / Guy Bottu and Marc Van Ranst -- Multiple alignment / Des Higgins -- Nucleotide substitution models / Korbinian Strimmer, Arndt von Heseler and Marco Salemi -- Phylogeny inference based on distance models / Yves Van de Peer and Marco Salemi -- Phylogeny inference based on parsimony and maximum likelihood methods with PAUP* / Marco Salemi and Jack Sullivan -- Quartet puzzling likelihood methods / Korbinian Strimmer and Arndt von Haeseler -- Phylogenetic analysis using protein sequences / Fred Opperdoes -- Analysis of nucleotide sequences using TreeCon / Yves Van de Peer -- Selecting models of evolution / David Posada -- Analysis of coding sequences / Yoshiyuki Suzuki and Takashi Gojobori -- Splits Tree: a network based tool for exploring evolutionary relationships in molecular data / Vincent Moulton -- Data exploration and tetrapod phylogeny / Xuhua Xia and Zheng Xie -- Detecting recombination in viral sequences / Mika Salminen -- LAMARC: estimating population genetic parameters from molecular data / Mary K. Kuhner. A broad introduction to the theory and practice of nucleotide and amino acid phylogenetic analysis. As a unique feature of this book, each chapter contains an extensive practical section, in which step-by-step exercises on real data sets introduce the reader to the most widely-used phylogeny software.
