Description

Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Moscow international conference on molecular phylogenetics, «Molecular Phylogenetics MolPhy-3», which will take place at the New School Building of Moscow State University, 31 July - 4 August 2012.

The conference mission is to provide a stimulating platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences in contemporary phylogenetics, molecular evolution and bioinformatics, and for developing methodology, algorithms, and applications for state-of-the-art analyses of molecular genetic data. The primary scope is in molecular phylogenetics and systematics, phyloinformatics, evolutionary genomics, reconstructing the Tree of Life, and applied phylogenetics.

Renowned scientists will give plenary lectures on hot topics. Participants can present findings in 15-minute talks, poster sessions, and software demonstrations. The conference aims to stimulate cross-disciplinary interactions, and establish long-term national and international collaborations. Young investigators are encouraged to participate.

The conference will be take place in modern media-equipped facilities of the New School Building of Moscow State University, one of the top centers for education and science in Russia. Among the conference organizers and sponsors are Moscow State University (the Faculty of Biology, Belozersky Institute for Physicochemical Biology, Faculty of Bioengineering and Bioinformatics, Research & Training Center “Evolutionary Genomics and Bioinformatics”), Russian Academy of Sciences (Institute for Information Transmission Problems, Institute of Paleontology), Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Ministry for Education and Science of Russia, Applied Biosystems (Life Technologies).

The conference language is English.

Important dates:

May 15, 2012– registration deadline, abstracts submission deadline.
May 21, 2012– abstract acceptance notification date.
May 31, 2012– early registration fee payment deadline.

Additionally, the organizers announce that the international course «Computational Phyloinformatics 2012» will follow on from the MolPhy-3 conference, 06-17 August 2012. This course is a 12-day intensive summer workshop co-organized by Moscow State University, NESCent, Institute for Information Transmission Problems (Russian Academy of Sciences), and the Phyloinformatics Research Foundation, Inc. The workshop aims to give biologists practical knowledge and hands-on programming skills in support of high-throughput phylogenetics, functional genomics, and phyloinformatics, using scripting languages that include Perl, Ruby, and SQL. Instruction is in English and participants are encouraged to bring their own computers. Detailed information on the syllabus and admission can be found on the workshop website at http://academy.nescent.org/wiki/Moscow_2012.
