ALPHY: French-Spanish meeting on Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics, March 19-21 2012, Banyuls-sur-Mer (France)

Published on

ALPHY is an annual meeting, organized in France since 1995, dedicated to
the field of Bioinformatics and Comparative Genomics (ALPHY = ALignments
and PHYlogeny). The main goal of this meeting is to promote informal
communication in this highly multidisciplinary field, and to encourage
young scientists to present their work.

This year, ALPHY is co-organized by Spanish and French scientists, in the
nice city of Banyuls, with the hope of enhancing scientific exchanges
between research groups of these two countries - and beyond. There will be
two invited speakers (Henrik Kaessmann and Jose Castresana), and the
program will be open for 25 to 30 contributions of 20' talks, plus possibly

Registration to the meeting is free, but mandatory. Please use the link
