and Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IITP RAS)
organize the international conference «Computational Phylogenetics and Molecular Systematics» (16-19 November 2007, Moscow, Russia)
This conference commemorates the 50 years since the first experimental study on molecular systematics was published in Russia, which marked the onset of contemporary molecular phylogenetics and a number of related disciplines, including molecular biology, evolutionary biology, biochemistry, computer science, and bioinformatics. The conference is aimed at gathering leading scientists from Russia and abroad in computational biology, genomics, theory and application of comparative analysis of genetic blueprints. The conference mission is to provide a stimulating platform for exchange of ideas and experiences, cross-disciplinary interactions, and long-term national and international collaborations. Participation of postgraduate and postdoctoral fellows is encouraged to foster development of the next generation professional network.
