Conference Description

The Molecular Evolution Gordon Research Conference brings together leading junior and senior scientists from around the globe to discuss current research as well as emerging opportunities and challenges in molecular evolution. Session topics have included ancestral protein reconstruction, computational evolutionary genomics, microbial/viral diversity and evolution, evolution of body plans, sex chromosome evolution, adaptive evolution, evolution of novelty and gene regulation, molecular evolution of interspecific hybrids, and the evolution of the germ line. Speakers and discussion leaders typically represent some of the leaders in experimental and computational/statistical approaches to understanding both the pattern and process of molecular evolution and the molecular basis of diversity.

What is a GRC? Gordon Research Conferences (GRC) are 5-day meetings that bring scientists together from around the world to present and discuss unpublished research with other leaders in their field.
