Molecular and Phenotipic Evolution Workshop

Serbian Evolutionary Society (SES) and European Society for Evolutionary Biology (ESEB) organize a seven-day workshop on Molecular and Phenotypic Evolution: theoretical and practical approaches (MolPhE 2018) that will take place from 3rd to 10th June 2018 at Petnica Science Center, Serbia. The workshop is organized for postgraduate and PhD students whose work focuses on evolutionary biology.

MolPhE 2018 will cover a wide range of issues in evolutionary biology with at least two overlapping thematic topics. First (molecular): genome evolution, phylogenetic comparative methods and population genomics. Second (phenotypic combined with molecular data): evolutionary morphometry and phylogeny (phylogenetic signals in morphometric data). The significance of the valid experimental design in solving various evolutionary questions will be discussed during the whole workshop with the special emphasis on experimental evolution approach. The participants will have the opportunity to interlink diverse theoretical concepts with cutting-edge methodology for their validation.

MolPhE 2018 is envisioned to help students in their professional development, as well as their networking opportunities. This is why a strong emphasis of the workshop will be focused on improving practical research skills, designing and presenting research projects, presenting own research and science popularization activities. Students are expected to take an active role in discussions on various topics.

We encourage you to promote this workshop to postgraduate students. We are convinced that this event will increase research excellence in the field of evolutionary biology in the region, help young researchers improve their academic careers and foster networking among young evolutionary biologists and senior scientists.
