Mathematics and Informatics in Evolution and Phylogeny

10-Jun-2008 - 12-Jun-2008

The subject is evolution, which is considered at different scales: sequences, genes, gene families, organelles, genomes, and species. The focus is on the mathematical and computational tools and concepts, which form an essential basis of evolutionary studies. Recent years have witnessed rapid progress in this area, with models becoming more realistic, and complex, and with fast algorithms able to deal with the large datasets that are available today.
