Statistical and computational challenges in molecular phylogenetics and evolution

28-Apr-2008 - 29-Apr-2008

The rapid growth of genetic sequence data has provided much-needed power for resolving controversial species relationships and studying the evolutionary process, but has also posed many statistical and computational challenges to the field. This meeting will bring together scientists with a diverse range of backgrounds, and in particular researchers actively developing statistical methods and computational algorithms used in modern phylogenetics software.
