Scientific Overview

The study of evolution is being transformed by advances in next-generation sequencing technologies. Evolutionary biologists are now facing major computational and statistical challenges in the analysis of such massive datasets as whole genomes from multiple species, genomic variation within populations, genome-wide expression data, and environmental samples. The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts from biology, mathematics, and computer science to survey ongoing developments in evolutionary genomics and foster collaborations across these fields. Topics covered will include: genome evolution, comparative genomics, phylogenomics, tree of life projects, and metagenomics.

This workshop will also include a poster session. A request for posters will be sent to registered participants in advance of the workshop.
