What's wrong with cophylogenetics ?

Mike Charleston

abstract: This talk introduces some of the ideas behind cophylogenetic analysis, which aims to recover ancient coevolutionary events between ecologically linked taxonomic units such as hosts and parasites, hosts & symbionts, species and genes. It describes some of the current challenges in this area, in terms of theoretical results, implementation, and some real examples.bio: M Charleston is an Associate Professor at the University of Sydney in Australia.
