Centre for Computational Evolution



The Centre for Computational Evolution brings together researchers who share an interest in developing software tools and mathematical models for understanding evolution and molecular ecology from genes to genomes. This approach spans fields as diverse as linguistics, ecology, the origin of life and epidemiology.
