The workshop explains genefamily concepts and resources. It enables researchers to place their sequence of interest into a genefamily context to compare sequence data and to transfer knowledge from well studied genes.
1. Selecting homologs -how to find members of your gene family
2. Multile alignments - Creation and Modification
3. Phylogenetic tree calculations
4. Interpretation of trees - "What kind of *log is it"? (paralog, ortholog, ...)
