Un nou taller a la Setmana de la Ciència a la UVic

setmanaciencia2015Aquesta setmana, la setmana de la Ciència a tota Catalunya, estem oferint un nou taller ala UVIC-UCC: Dades genòmiques: construcció d’arbres filogènics ‘in silico’. En el passat, l’estudi de l’evolució es feia comparant les característiques físiques de les diferents espècies (el que anomenem fenotip) que podien observar-se en els fòssils. Avui dia, la separació entre espècies al llarg de l’evolució es quantifica a través de les diferències en les seqüències de DNA o de proteïnes. En aquest taller treballem a l’aula d’informàtica la cerca de seqüències en bases de dades públiques, el seu alineament i la creació d’arbres evolutius.

Esperem que sigui d’interès pels estudiants d’ESO i/o Batxillerat!
