Phylogenetic Modeling Research

The division's main research focus currently is supertree methods for the Open Tree of Life project. The Open Tree of Life project brings together published estimates of portions of the tree of life into a comprehensive view of the history of life on Earth. The project uses community curation of inputs and emphasizes open science principles by making all code and analytical results available under open access licenses and by providing web service interfaces to its data and results.
