What is the Summer of 2024 in the Phyloinformatics Lab looking like?

In the summer of 2024, the Phyloinformatics Lab will be full of potential. We have ten members working on projects combining phylogenetics and computational intelligence. Here is a list of their names and projects.

Our team and their projects

BONUS: A great collaboration

This summer we are saying goodbye to Dr. Philippe Vieira Alves, who is returning to the São Paulo State University (UNESP) in Botucatu-SP, Brazil. Philippe collaborated with us for one yer, funded by the São Paulo Reserach Foundation (FAPESP, proc. no. 2023/00714-5).

Philippe has been applying genome skimming to sequenge mitochondrion genomes of dozens of proteocephalids tapeworms. Hw is also reviewing the phylogeny of proteocephalids and using AI to reconcile their evolutionary history with metadata from hosts and biogeography. His research will be presented in two separate talks at this years meeting of the American Society of Parasitologists.

The Phyloinformatics Lab hopes to keep collaborating with Philippe and appreciates his kindness and hard work.
