Mathematical and computational tools and concepts form an essential basis for modern evolutionary studies. The goal of the MCEB conference (at its 7th edition) is to bring together scientists with diverse backgrounds to present recent advances and discuss open problems in the field of mathematical and computational evolutionary biology. The theme of this year’s edition will be "New Data, New Questions, New Methods"

The theme of this year's edition will be "New Data, New Questions, New Methods". New generation sequencing techniques have multiplied not just the amount, but also the types of genetic data produced (e.g. RNA-seq, single-cell sequencing, ChIP-seq, Hi-C, ancient DNA, RAD-seq...), giving rise to new questions, and new methodologies to answer them. These methodologies are often cross-disciplinary, with applications to diverse research topics such as gene expression, cancer, development, genome evolution, epigenetics.

General concepts, models, methods and algorithms will also be presented and discussed, just as during the previous conference editions.

Conference fees including accommodation (4 nights), meals, coffee breaks, buses, etc., will be around 500 €, and will vary depending on the room type. PhD students and postdocs will benefit of the cheapest rooms.

 

Pre-registration deadline: February 10
