Modern Phylogenetic comparative methods. Conferencia Sevilla 2014.

Phylogenetic comparative methods are now widely used in very diverse fields of evolutionary biology to make robust inferences from interspecific data and phylogenies. Currently, we witness a rapid flourishing of the phylogenetic toolbox allowing researchers to tackle diverse questions concerning the evolution of species and their traits. The conference aims at providing a bouquet of overviews on the most recent developments by the most prominent experts of the comparative methodology, and also at attracting a wide range of contributions from different fields of evolutionary biology to demonstrate how the phylogenetic comparative approach can be used to address an ample array of biological questions in different taxa.

POY version 5: phylogenetic analysis using dynamic homologies under multiple optimality criteria

We present POY version 5, an open source program for the phylogenetic analysis of diverse data types including qualitative, aligned sequences, unaligned sequences, genomic data, and user-defined sequences. In addition to the maximum-parsimony optimality criterion supported by POY4, POY5 supports several types of maximum likelihood as well as posterior probability. To make these analyses feasible, new heuristic search algorithms and parallelization options have been implemented for all criteria.

Postdoctoral Researcher - Insect Systematics at ASU

A postdoctoral position in revisionary insect systematics is available in the Franz Lab (, School of Life Sciences, Arizona State University. We seek a candidate with an exceptional record of training and achievement in morphology-based taxonomic revisions of insects and a motivation to integrate their research with developing biodiversity informatics concepts and tools.
