Computational and mathematical challenges involved in very large-scale phylogenetics

Date: 
Monday 3rd September 2007 - 10:00 to 11:00
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 

Phylogenetic inference presents enormous computational and mathematical challenges, but these are particularly exacerbated when dealing with very large datasets (containing thousands of sequences) or when sequences evolve under complex models of evoluiton. In this talk, I will describe some of the recent progress in large-scale phylogenetics. In particular, I will talk about multiple sequence alignment and its implications for large-scale phylogenetics.
