SPG activities, Spring 2012

Dear members and friends of the Stockholm Phylogenomics Group:

We are a little late with the program for the spring, but we think we have some very interesting events on the program to compensate. Both Alexis Stamatakis and Nicolas Lartillot will be visiting in the late spring, each giving a software demonstration and a seminar. In addition, we are trying a new format, an Open Problem Session, which we hope will give participants a chance to discuss their ongoing research projects in an informal setting. Hopefully this can lead to a productive exchange of ideas and perhaps the formation of new collaborations. In addition, we also arrange two journal club meetings. Events take place either at the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University (Kräftriket) or at the Swedish Museum of Natural History (Naturhistoriska riksmuseet).
