This is the home page of the UConn EEB department's Systematics Seminar (EEB 6486). This is a graduate seminar devoted to issues of interest to graduate students and faculty who make up the systematics program at the University of Connecticut.

Meeting time and place

For the Spring 2012 semester, we are meeting in the Bamford Room (TLS 171B) Mondays 3-4pm

Monday, 23 January 2012

At this meeting we will discuss possible themes for this semester's seminar, but just to get the ball rolling I have uploaded a short Nature paper for us to discuss:

Pdficon small.gifSmith et al. 2011. Resolving the evolutionary relationships of molluscs with phylogenomic tools. Nature 480:364-367 (Dec. 2011). doi:10.1038/nature10526

Images created from the data sets provided online showing extent of missing data. The color red indicates new data collected for this study, black indicates existing data, white indicates missing data. Note, if you choose to display these in your browser (rather than downloading them and using Preview or Photoshop to view them), you should be aware that they are very wide but not very tall, so you will have to zoom your browser to see anything (unless you have really good eyes).

The links below are images of the same two datasets, but wrapped to 1000 pixels wide for easier viewing:

Continuing on the phylogenomic theme, Louise Lewis and Karolina Fučíková will lead a discussion on the following shakeup in the green plant tree:

Pdficon small.gifTimme, R. E., T. R. Bachvaroff and C. R. Delwiche. 2012. Broad Phylogenomic Sampling and the Sister Lineage of Land Plants. PLoS One 7: e29696.

Images created from the data sets provided online showing extent of missing data. The color black indicates existing data, white indicates missing data. Admonitions for similar images posted for last week's paper apply here as well.

The same as above, but wrapped to 1000 pixels wide (easier to see):

Switching gears a bit, Russ Meister will lead a discussion on some Mosquito phylogenetics work. Additionally he will talk about the Digital Mosquito Project he is working on.

Brigette Zacharczenko will discuss some of the challenges of lepidoptera systematics.
