BEAST Software – Bayesian Evolutionary Analysis Sampling Trees #getting-started, #beast #mcmc


#

What is BEAST?

BEAST is a cross-platform program for Bayesian analysis of molecular sequences using MCMC. It is entirely orientated towards rooted, time-measured phylogenies inferred using strict or relaxed molecular clock models. It can be used as a method of reconstructing phylogenies but is also a framework for testing evolutionary hypotheses without conditioning on a single tree topology. BEAST uses MCMC to average over tree space, so that each tree is weighted proportional to its posterior probability. We include a simple to use user-interface program for setting up standard analyses and a suit of programs for analysing the results.

This website is for BEAST v1.X (currently version v1.8.4 ). For details about BEAST2, an independent project led by the University of Auckland, please look here .

Getting started with BEAST

Downloading BEAST

Introductory Tutorials

These tutorials use the graphical applications of BEAST to perform analyses using the provided example files:

Tutorial 1: Using sequences sampled at different points in time to estimate rates Tutorial 2: Estimating the divergence time of a monophyletic group using a known mutation rate And more Tutorials available.

Some downloadable packages containing tutorial worksheets and associated data. These are used in workshops and classes.

Citing BEAST

The recommended citation for this program is:

Drummond AJ, Suchard MA, Xie D Rambaut A (2012) Bayesian phylogenetics with BEAUti and the BEAST 1.7 Molecular Biology And Evolution 29: 1969-1973 full text See this page for a more detailed list of publications for citing individual models and components.

BEAST-Users mailing list

Users are strongly advised to join the BEAST mailing-list. This will be used to announce new versions and advise users about bugs and problems.

Note: This is work in progress to produce a central repository for BEAST v1.x documentation.

Academic Programs Health Information Management

Visit the Health Information Management Academic Program page on MC’s online catalog

The US Department of Education requires colleges to disclose a variety of information for any financial aid eligible program that prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation. Midland College is committed to creating an educated workforce by offering occupational programs that lead to gainful employment.

Medical Coding Specialist
Health Data Coordinator
Health Data Specialist – Physician Practice

The Health Information Management online associate degree program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM). According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, health information management jobs are expected to increase by 15% from 2014-2024. The median income is $37,110, (2015 statistic), but additional credentials do add to the marketability of professionals.

The HIM program was established in 1998 as a traditional face-to-face program. In 2007-2008, the HIM program transitioned to an “online only” program to meet the needs of working students and professionals. The exception to online courses are the requirement for clinical courses completed onsite at a facility (HITT 2261 for the associate degree and HITT 1167 for Medical Coding Specialist certificate).

Program Statistics for years 2011- 2016 :
Registered Health Information Technologist: 91 % pass rate for graduates t aking RHIT exam.
Employer Satisfaction Rate: 100%
Student Graduate Survey, Satisfaction Rate: 100%

Many students admitted into the program have already completed one degree, and some have bachelors or masters degrees. The reason they pursue the associate degree training is to be eligible for the Registered Health Information Technician (RHIT) upon graduation. The RHIT credential, and the RHIA credential for the bachelor’s degree, continue to be a preferred credential that healthcare employers seek when hiring Health Information Management candidates.

Online Technology Requirements

Students meet the minimum requirements listed on Canvas to complete the courses. See guides.instructure.com/ for details.

Students must be self-motivated, able to comprehend information in written form, and have the ability to communicate effectively both in written and verbal forms. Students should also be able to research websites, upload and download documents, post discussions, and access email. The courses are not self-paced, but have scheduled weekly due dates for assignments, discussions, and tests. Students should expect to spend 6 9 hours per 3 hour credit course to complete assignments, readings, and tests. Instructors are available to answer questions online or by phone related to course topics.

Skills Needed for Health Information Profession:

ability to analyze patient data for payment or registry information,
able to sit for long periods to complete work at work station
research and review patient information for regulatory compliance,
code and categorize patient information using standard coding systems.
communicate effectively with patients, physicians, and other customers
ability to work under pressure to meet deadlines
keyboarding skills and ability to use software systems, patient portals, etc.

Students may apply to the program in the semester they are completing the prerequisites. Final grades will be verified before admittance. Students are accepted prior to each semester (Summer, Fall, and Spring). Most of the students in the programs are considered part-time; taking 2 to 3 classes each semester since most have part-time or full-time jobs. There are approximately 70-80 students taking HIM classes or prerequisite courses to gain admission to the program.

Clinical Requirement Onsite:

Students that live outside the local Midland area are able to locate clinical sites in their area with the assistance of the HIM program. More information and directions are given to students upon acceptance into the program (courses related to associate degree and Medical Coding Specialist certificate). Prior to the clinical course, students are required to meet certain facility requirements to attend clinical practice. These include a background check, drug screen, immunizations, and other requirements based of the facility. More information provided prior to clinicals.
