Grad School
Research (a.k.a., that which creationists do not understand)
some of the things I looked at in my doctoral research:
- generic and species relationships within the cercopithecidae
- generic and species relationships within the hominidae
- phylogeny of Primates
techniques/programs used:
DNA extraction
DNA sequencing (manual and automated)
PAUP 3.1, 4.0
ClustalX (a little)
OLIGO (a little)
The picture shows a phylogenetic tree generated using noncoding DNA sequences (min. 2 kb per species; average of 6.5 kb per species)
in PAUP (both Maximum likelihood and maximum parsimony). Numbers above lines represent the Bootstrap percentages out of 2000 replications that that particular node was supported. Numbers below lines represent the number of synapomorphies that would need to be changed to alter the grouping.
The names used represent those suggested in the "Towards.." and OWM papers above - an altered taxonomic ranking scheme based on the outcomes of my (and others') research.
My interests:
creationism (I deign not to refer to it as 'creation science', for there is very little science behind it...)
