Deep Gene at Botany 2002
Deep Gene Workshop at Botany
2002, Madison, WI, Thursday, August 8th, 2002
The dual goal of this all-day workshop is to introduce the large
contingent of graduate students attending to each other and to the
faculty, and then to address some cutting-edge intellectual issues
involving cross-overs between phylogenetic and genomic research.
We plan four main informal sessions that will be mostly discussion
with some brief presentations.
||Gather in room for coffee and informal conversation
||Introduction to the day; logistics
|| Once around the room for self-introductions and
brief statements of current research interests (3 informal minutes
per person, please )
|| Choosing new genomic model systems in light of
phylogeny. What new genomic and phylogentic tools can be brought
|| Lunch in room -- informal discussion
Gene Ontology: how should genes be named? How can they be
between genomes? Homology versus function.
|| Wrap-up discussion. Where should we go from here?
|| Break; afternoon coffee, coke, snacks
Meet with Deep Time RCN group in joint session, consider
joint scientific & logistic issues as:
- how can fossil and morphological data be integrated with
data in "total evidence" phylogenetic analyses?
- how can fossils be used to calibrate molecular clocks?
- how can paleobotanical data inform our understanding
of function in
|| End Discussions
|| Informal dinner with Deep Time (location
to Deep Gene home |
