The Workshop on Phylogenomics 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 the main aspects of phylogenomics, i.e. 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.
A majority of the schedule is dedicated to hands-on learning activities designed by faculty and the workshop team. This interactive experience provides Workshop participants with the practical experience required to meet the challenges presented by modern evolutionary sciences.
The 2024 Workshop on Phylogenomics will be held in Český Krumlov, Czech Republic, from January 21 to February 3, 2024. This will be the third version of the Workshop on Phylogenomics, which extends on topics developed in both the Workshop on Molecular Evolution and the Workshop on Genomics placing them in a phylogenomic framework.
We look forward to seeing you in Český Krumlov!
