Quantitative Laws of Genome Evolution

Quantitative approaches to evolutionary genomics, systems biology, and ecology unravel several universal regularities connecting genome-scale observables, phenotypes and physiological traits. Putting aside any unrealistic ambitions of all-inclusive theories, some of these universal empirical trends might qualify as "biological laws" in a similar sense as "law" is understood in modern physics. Consequently, a current challenge for theoreticians is understanding how different universal features emerging empirically can be accounted for by simple mathematical models exploring quantitative laws at different levels, from physiology to evolutionary genomics.

The scope of this workshop is to give an overview of the current state of the field and put a researcher in the condition of performing research at the edge of the current knowledge. The workshop is interdisciplinary, but primarily targets PhD students and postdocs with a physics background.
