Current Advances in Molecular Phylogenetics

Description

Knowledge of phylogeny is of fundamental importance in evolutionary studies, from the reconstruction of the Tree of Life, to revealing and understanding the laws of body plan formation (the evo-devo realm), to describing the patterns and processes of microevolution. The discipline of phylogenetics has evolved radically in the new millennium, capitalizing on theoretical and methodological breakthroughs in analysis and algorithms, on the exponential increase in molecular data, and on the availability of vast computing power to enter the phylogenomic era. A solid methodological framework for phylogenomic analysis is emerging, applying data derived from whole genomes to problems in deep phylogeny, functional genomics, speciation and divergence, and phylogeography. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Evolutionary genomics
  • Molecular phylogenetics and systematics
  • Development and phylogeny (evo-devo)
  • Models, tools, and algorithms for phylogenetic reconstruction and molecular dating
  • Applied phylogenetics: genotyping and barcoding of biological objects, molecular anthropology, molecular epidemiology, and forensic science
  • Molecular ecology
  • Molecular biodiversity and biogeography
