I’ve been spending the week teaching in the Bodega Marine Lab for the 2017 Workshop in Applied Phylogenetics. It’s been a fun week of statistics, phylogenies, data analysis, and beautiful weather. This year, Jeremy Brown (@jembrown) and I put together a new day long session focusing on model selection, model performance, and the challenges of big data in phylogenetics. My slides are available over at treethinkers.org.
