Evolutionary analysis beyond the gene

November 17, 2014 - November 18, 2014

Two day residential conference organised by AHRC Science in Culture Theme Advisory Group member, Professor Chris Howe, University of Cambridge and Dr Jamie Tehrani, Durham University.

This strongly interdisciplinary meeting will review how the principles of phylogenetic analysis can be applied to datasets other than DNA or protein, including linguistics, archaeology, behaviour, anthropology and literature. It will identify the technical difficulties in this approach, and, with input from phylogenetics experts, suggest ways of dealing with the difficulties.
