  • January 2003 - Tree of Life Grant
    A new grant will fund research to help reconstruct the evolutionary relationships of green plants using comparative genomics. This research is part of a nation-wide collaborative effort involving 6 universities. Through its new "Assembling the Tree of Life" program, the National Science Foundation is hoping to stimulate a detailed reconstruction of the phylogeny of all living things, to better understand the history of life and advance human needs including discovery of new drugs, tracking pathogens, and conservation of biodiversity. For more details see brochure online (warning, a 2.5M PDF file).
