Inferring Evolutionary Relationships from Sequencing Data



You will act as a molecular biologist, working as a team with epidemiologists and other researchers to identify the source of a virus that has caused a disease outbreak.  You will employ authentic sequencing data, published online, and the same tools used by actual researchers to develop phylogenic trees to infer molecular relationships between strains isolated from different patients.  Using background information about each subject, you will determine the source of the disease outbreak.
