Reconstruction of Molecular Phylogeny (in Chinese) survey image

  • Date: 2017-04-11

  • Speaker: Dr. Ai-Ling Hour (Assistant Professor, FJU, Dept. Life Science)
  • Place:Media Conference Room, Humanities and Social Science Building (3F)

The phylogeny among species or homologous genes can be approached by comparison analysis of molecular sequences based on the theory of population genetics and molecular evolution. The molecular evolutionary rates and the selection pressure of genes and organisms during evolution process can be estimated. There are several methods and programs available for phylogeny reconstructing, including distance based, parsimony and maximum-likelihood methods. I will introduce these methods and practice an example using MEGA7.

IPA is software that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research. IPA has been broadly adopted by the life science research community and is cited in thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles.
IPA helps you understand complex omics data at multiple levels by integrating data from a variety of experimental platforms and providing insight into the molecular and chemical interactions, cellular phenotypes, and disease processes of your system. IPA provides insight into the causes of observed gene expression changes and into the predicted downstream biological effects of those changes.
Even if you have experimental data, you can use IPA to intelligently search the Ingenuity Knowledge Base for information on genes, proteins, chemicals, drugs, and molecular relationships to build biological models or get up to speed in a relevant area of research. IPA provides the right biological context to facilitate informed decision-making, advance research project design, and generate new testable hypotheses.

Outline:

1. Introduction and Getting Started in IPA
2. Searching and Accessing the Knowledge Base
3. Building and Editing a Pathway for Publication

Are Current Protocols peer-reviewed?
Yes. Current Protocols techniques are selected and reviewed in depth by editorial boards consisting of distinguished life sciences researchers, and then rigorously edited by a scientifically qualified, in-house staff. All techniques are indexed in PubMed and Scopus.
What is Currentprotocols.com?
Designed following extensive consultation with practicing researchers, currentprotocols.com provides instant, easy access to protocol abstracts, material lists, and more, while linking to full-text content hosted on Wiley Online Library. Currentprotocols.com also features tools, calculators, videos, and webinars to help researchers both in the lab and beyond the bench.
