General Information

This conference will provide a forum for scientists interested in applying systems and mechanistic approaches to understand evolution. Advances in genome sequencing and computational biology are providing unprecedented insights into biological mechanisms and evolutionary processes. In addition, gene-editing tools are revolutionising what is possible in model and non-model organisms.

This year’s conference will focus on the evolution of biological systems at different levels: genes, molecules and systems. We will also explore protein evolution, how microbes adapt to their environment, quantitative genetics and the impact that evolutionary change can have on human health. We will feature examples of practical and theoretical approaches to study how genetic and non-genetic changes fuel and constrain evolution.

The meeting will offer a valuable training ground and rich learning experience for scientists in disciplines relevant to systems biology. It will be of particular interest to those working at the interface of evolution, quantitative genetics, and systems biology.
