We have put together a few tutorials to get you quickly started with GenGIS.

Tutorial 1: Banza Katydids of the Hawaiian Islands

Geophylogeny of Banza katydids from the Hawaiian Islands

In this tutorial, we consider the phylogenetic tree of Banza katydids (acoustic insects) from the Hawaiian Islands recently recovered by Shapiro et al. [1]. GenGIS will be used to investigate whether or not this phylogeny is related to the geography of the Hawaiian Islands.

Tutorial 2: Marine Microbial Communities from the Atlantic Seaboard

In this tutorial, we examine samples collected as part of the Global Ocean Sampling metagenomic survey [2] in order to investigate the influence of environmental factors on the composition of microbial communities from marine ecosystems.
