Adelaide Conference on Mathematical

25-Mar-2008 - 30-Mar-2008

Mathematical biology is set to become a key focus of future scientific research in Australia and worldwide, due to technological revolutions in the ability to generate genetic data that have occurred over the past 1-2 years. The Adelaide Conference on Mathematical Evolutionary Biology aims to bridge the current gap between the fields of modern biological research and applied mathematical research in Australia, particularly in the study of phylogeny and molecular evolution. This conference is the first of an annual series which is designed to develop core analytical skills and collaborations within mathematical evolutionary biology, and is closely related to the very successful New Zealand Phylogenetics Meeting series. The leading researchers from the NZ groups will attend the Adelaide meeting to act as 'translators' between the two fields, providing an introduction and identifying current and future research areas.
