Studies of genome evolution are generally based on two approaches, phylogenetic methodology that relies on inter-species variation, and population genetics methodology that relies on intraspecies variation. The two approaches, thus, focus on two different time-scales, and different models and methods have emerged in both disciplines. Different model assumptions have led to a separation of the two disciplines, and information content extracted by each of the two approaches is rarely combined. However, motivated by the recent increase in genome sequence data, efforts in method development have been made to counteract the distinction between phylogenetic and population genetics methodology.

The idea of this symposium is to discuss and compare different approaches that cross the bridge between inter- and intra-specific studies. The discussions shall improve our understanding of the information content provided in genome sequence data across time-scales and stimulate further method development to efficiently use the increasing amount of data available.

Organizing committee: Laurent Guéguen, Laboratoire de Biométrie & Biologie Évolutive, Université Lyon 1 (Convener)
Carolin Kosiol, Centre for Biological Diversity, School of Biology, University of St Andrews
Carina Farah Mugal, Department of Ecology and Genetics, Uppsala University
