Boore gives an invited talk entitled "The GATOR and PHRINGE System
for Reconstructing the Evolutionary History of Genes and Genomes"
at the semi-annual Boehringer-Ingelheim
conference on "Genome
Evolution and the Origin of Novel Gene Functions" in Titisee-Neustadt,
Boore gives a presentation at the California
Academy of Sciences to an auditorium of high schol biology teachers
as part of their annual "BioForum"
outreach. The talk was entitled "Genomics: Where Have We Come and
Where are We Going?" as part of this year's theme "Genomics:
Insights and Impacts".
Boore and Fuerstenberg participate in and present at the CIPRES
("Cyberinfrastructure for Phylogenetic Research") meeting
in Berkeley, CA.
Project Solutions releases version 3 of the PHRINGE
evolutionary analysis of oomycete and diatom genomes. This now adds
the complete gene set of another oomycete, Pythium
ultimum, bringing the total number of genes analyzed to 109,682.
Much of the code and presentation has been rewritten.
