III Moscow International Conference “Molecular Phylogenetics MolPhy-3”, 31 July – 04 August, 2012
The conference mission is to provide a stimulating platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences in contemporary phylogenetics, molecular evolution and bioinformatics, and for developing methodology, algorithms, and applications for state-of-the-art analyses of molecular genetic data. The primary scope is in molecular phylogenetics and systematics, phyloinformatics, evolutionary genomics, reconstructing the Tree of Life, and applied phylogenetics.
Renowned scientists will give plenary lectures on hot topics. Participants can present findings in 15-minute talks, poster sessions, and software demonstrations. The conference aims to stimulate cross-disciplinary interactions, and establish long-term national and international collaborations. Young investigators are encouraged to participate.
The conference language is English.
May 15, 2012– registration deadline, abstracts submission deadline.
Additionally, the organizers announce that the international course «Computational Phyloinformatics 2012» will follow on from the MolPhy-3 conference, 06-17 August 2012. This course is a 12-day intensive summer workshop co-organized by Moscow State University, NESCent, Institute for Information Transmission Problems (Russian Academy of Sciences), and the Phyloinformatics Research Foundation, Inc. The workshop aims to give biologists practical knowledge and hands-on programming skills in support of high-throughput phylogenetics, functional genomics, and phyloinformatics, using scripting languages that include Perl, Ruby, and SQL. Instruction is in English and participants are encouraged to bring their own computers. Detailed information on the syllabus and admission can be found on the workshop website at http://academy.nescent.org/wiki/Moscow_2012.
