Dear colleagues,

Moscow State University and the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences announce the 2nd Moscow International Conference “MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETICS MolPhy-2”, which will take place at the Faculty of Biology of Moscow State University during 18 – 21 May 2010.

The conference mission is to provide a stimulating platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences, cross-disciplinary interactions, and long-term national and international collaborations. Discussions will concern the modern state of phylogenetics and systematics, the interfaces between molecular and phenosystematics, molecular phylogenetics of different organisms and development of natural classification systems, evolutionary genomics, applications of phylogenetics, development of state-of-the-art methods, algorithms and their implementations for analyses of genetic blueprints.

The conference will be attended by leading researchers in the field from around Russian Federation and abroad, with renowned scientists giving plenary lectures on hot subjects. Young specialists are especially encouraged to participate. Selected contributions will be accepted for extended publications in the conference proceedings.

The conference is organized and supported by the Faculty of Biology and Research & Training Center “Evolutionary Genomics and Bioinformatics” (Moscow State University), Belozersky Institute for Physicochemical Biology (Moscow State University), Institute for Information Transmission Problems (Russian Academy of Sciences), Central Botanical Garden (Russian Academy of Sciences), Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, Moscow Society of Naturalists, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, HealthGene Corp., and Applied Biosystems (Life Technologies).

Important conference deadlines are:

22 February 2010: deadline for abstract submissions requested for an extended publication in the conference proceedings. Registration deadline for their authors.

15 March 2010: registration deadline (if you are a EU resident you can register until March 31).
