The unprecedented amount of genomic data resulting from next-generation sequencing techniques has opened a new era in phylogenomics, prompting the development of accurate statistical methods that take into account the complexities of this type of data and their implementation in efficient computational tools.
In this workshop we pretend to explore potential solutions to common problems in statistical and computational phylogenomics in the XXI century, and for that purpose we have gathered some of the main players in the field. Confirmed speakers are: Guy Baele (USA), Mukul Bansal (USA), Bastien Boussau (USA), Oliver Eulenstein (USA), Olivier Gascuel (France), Lars Jermiin (Australia), Laura Kubatko (USA), Jens Lagergren (Sweden), Nicolas Lartillot (Canada), Leo Martins (Spain), Luay Nakleh (USA), Alexis Stamatakis (Germany), Tandy Warnow (USA) and Ziheng Yang (UK).
Extended talks from this workshop will be published as a special issue in the journal Bioinformatics.
Meeting organized by David Posada with ERC funding.
