2020 Phylogenomics Symposium and Software School
Gainesville, Florida
January 3, 2020

This symposium and software school is part of the SSB 2020 Standalone Meeting, Systematics in the Swamp, held January 3-6, 2020, in Gainesville Florida. The event will cover new methods for large-scale species tree estimation, phylogenetic networks, and multiple sequence alignment. Travel support for students and young investigators are available.

This symposium and workshop is sponsored by the National Science Foundation through NSF grant 1458652, on New methods for multiple sequence alignment with improved accuracy and scalability to Tandy Warnow at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Tentative Schedule

Hands-on Training

Hands-on training will be provided for the following software tools:

Please download, install, and run all software before the software school. Please contact Tandy Warnow (warnow@illinois.edu) for more information.

To request to give a lightning talk, please email me with an abstract of the talk you would like to give. List all the authors on the paper, and if the talk is for published work, please send the full reference (so I can access the paper).

Travel awards (supported by NSF) are available to graduate students, postdocs, and other young investigators who wish to attend the software school and symposium. (Important: the travel award is only for reimbursement of expenses directly related to attending the Symposium and Software School; that means at most two nights of lodging and round-trip travel to Gainesville, Florida. If you plan to attend the SSB Standalone meeting and need additional support beyond this, please contact the organizers of the Standalone meeting for information on how to apply for additional funds.)
