Comparative Chloroplast Genomics.
The exponential increase in the availability of complete sequences of plastid genomes is providing a wealth of new data for plant biologists. These new data are having a huge impact in a wide diversity of fields, including evolutionary biology, phylogenetics, computational biology, molecular biology, and bioengineering. This full day symposium in comparative chloroplast genomics is designed to provide a broad and in depth overview of the application of complete plastid genomes to these fields. We have assembled a diverse list of speakers who are leading efforts to gather and utilize chloroplast genomic data to address a wide variety of questions. The morning session will focus more on the molecular biology, evolution, and bioengineering of plastid genomes. The afternoon session will emphasize the phylogenetic utility of whole genome data for addressing relationships among major lineages of plants, ranging from the green algae, ferns, seed plants, and angiosperms.
