Genomic Systematics 11.09.16-12.09.16

Genomic Systematics: 11.09-12.09, organizers: S. Bradler & T. H. Struck

In the past decade, the emphasis for reconstructing species phylogenies has moved from the analysis of a single or few genes to the analysis of multiple genes and even completed genomes. Reconstructing evolutionary trees based on large portions of genomes poses numerous methodological challenges that we will tackle in this satellite symposium organized by the Zoological Systematics section. Besides three invited key speakers that will present their research, e.g. on the use of transcriptomes and retroposons for tree reconstructions, we invite young scientists and experienced researchers alike to present short presentations and posters.

Keynotes will be presented by:
