Type of grant



An understanding of the evolutionary relationships among species is at the heart of many biological analyses. Phylogenomics, the discipline that reconstructs evolutionary relationships, is fueled by the increased availability of genomic data for a growing number of species. But the flood of data also comes with hurdles in analysis and interpretation of signal across the genome. Our conference February 24-26 is bringing together leading scientists in phylogenomics from abroad and with the experts in Copenhagen, to 1) to learn about leading edge concepts and new approaches in phylogenomics and 2) to develop new strategies to explore, assess and analyze the ever growing datasets to gain exciting new perspectives on the evolution of biodiversity.
