The 2024 Workshop on Phylogenomics is being held January 21 to February 3, 2024 in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic. This is the 3rd edition of the workshop on Phylogenomics starting again after a four year hiatus.
This workshop brings together an international collection of faculty members and Workshop participants to study and discuss current ideas and techniques for exploring phylogenomics. The Workshop consists of a series of lectures, demonstrations and computer laboratories that cover theoretical and conceptual aspects of large-scale phylogenetics and phylogenomics, with a strong emphasis on data analysis.
The Workshop extends on topics developed in both the Workshop on Molecular Evolution and the Workshop on Genomics placing them in a phylogenomic framework. It places a strong focus on molecular phylogenetics performed at genome-wide scales (phylogenomics), and covers all aspects of phylogenomics workflows. The workshop will cover main aspects of phylogenomics: the reconstruction of species trees from large-scale genomics data. In addition, we will explore the use of phylogenomic data to 1) study species divergence and trait evolution patterns, 2) reconstruct and analyze genome-wide collections of species trees to detect orthology and paralogy, and 3) study genome dynamics along species trees.
The Workshop registration fee is $1,950. We provide approximately 90 hours of teaching during the two week workshop. Our price is therefore approximately $22 an hour. Note that this amount does not cover travel, lodging or boarding.
Many important details regarding fees and other information can be read on our FAQ page.

Antonis Rokas, Vanderbilt University
Rosa Fernández, Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF)
