Dr. Kelchner gives a presentation on evolution at a Sigma Xi panel for the public. The event at the Portneuf Valley Brewery is to celebrate Darwin Day in Pocatello. Yes, even we in Pocatello are happily remembering that excellent old fellow with the beard (no, not Santa).
The Bamboo Phylogeny Group has published its new taxonomic classification of bamboos, in response to its forthcoming phylogeny estimation of bamboo tribes. A conservative approach was used so that the nomenclatural framework could withstand alternative resolutions of three tricky parts in the bamboo evolutionary tree. It's a beauty!
Meeting in Münster, Germany of manual DNA sequence aligners about the future of criterion-based alignment methods. A pleasant couple of days with Dietmar, Thomas, Kai, and David. Thank you Kai Müller for hosting us!
Dr. Kelchner presents at the Lorenz Center Workshop “The Future of Phylogenetic Networks” in Leiden, Netherlands. His incipient introversion had no chance with such great company and exciting ideas. A special thanks to David Morrison, Jim Whitfield, James McInerney, Luay Nakhleh, and Axel Janke for making it such a fun and memorable trip.
