In May 2023 we will be holding our first conference on "New Frontiers in Reconstructing Human Evolution History," featuring the newly minted2022 Nobel LaureateSvante Pääboas the Keynote Speaker! The field is exploding as genomic tools and computational methodology now collide, revealing how migrations, infectious diseases and other historical events shaped human evolution. The meeting will bring together researchers with expertise in computational biology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, functional genomics, and bioethics to discuss emerging research discoveries in:
Computational Approaches for Reconstructing Demographic History
Evolution of Complex Traits
Early History of Modern Humans
Genomic Basis of Human Adaptation
Impact of Infectious Disease on Human Evolution
Ethical Issues of Working with Indigenous Population Samples
