Horizontal Evolutionary Processes in Phylogenetics
The lecture series will be held online
The tide research group is pleased to invite you to join our inaugural virtual seminar series, Horizontal evolutionary processes in phylogenetics.
Horizontal transfer is an important evolutionary process for the generation of diversity in both biological and non-biological systems.
The horizontal transfer of genetic information impedes the commonly used binary-tree approaches for the study of evolutionary relationships. However, recombination patterns can shed light on the evolution of the organism under investigation.
In this seminar series, we explore developments towards incorporating horizontal evolutionary processes into the phylogenetic and phylodynamic analysis of evolutionary relationships in a range of areas including pathogen evolution, epidemiology and human cultural evolution.
