PATRIC Webinar – Phylogenetic Tree Builder, November 30, 2017, 3:00pm EST

PATRIC now provides a new service that builds phylogenetic trees. The trees, which can include both private and public data, are built using well-established methods for generating whole-genome phylogenies from amino acid sequences. On November 30th at 3pm EST we will provide a webinar demonstrates this service. Please email rwattam@vt.edu if you plan to attend […]
