Maximizing Phylogenetic Diversity
Dr. Nick Goldman, EMBL- European Bioinformatics Institute, UK
Tuesday 29th March, Location: Gavin de Beer LT, Time: 17:00
'Phylogenetic diversity' (PD) means the total amount of evolution
represented by the phylogeny (evolutionary tree) relating a given
set of organisms. As time passes, PD tends to increase (sort of
like entropy?); but extinctions lead to a reduction in PD.
Conservation biologists are particularly interested in trying to
reduce the loss of PD. Can we make choices that maximize PD?
This talk will review some algorithmic results around questions
regarding the maximization of phylogenetic diversity.
