Origin of Biodiversity

​Phylogenomics and phylogeography: new models and insights from large scale data sets

An overview of new models and large-­scale data sets that integrate phylogenomics and phylogeography and challenge existing paradigms. For example, will the potential availability of genome-wide sequence data for any organismal taxon change our view of the tree of life? How are models developed in population genetics affecting large-scale phylogenetics and vice versa? Will the species problem finally be solved? What are the computational challenges and how can they be solved?

The symposium runs May 15-19, on the first days there are open lectures for everyone interested.
