Enabling Research in Evolutionary Biology
Unlike in Biology, conference publications are much more important in computer science. We normally submit full papers to conferences which are then peer-reviewed and appear in printed conference proceedings or on CDs. If you look at the publication record of CS professors (for a representative example have a look at the homepage of Dimitris Nikolopoulos) you will find that they typically have much more conference than journal publications.

Our contribution:Andre developped software for rogue taxon analysis and applied it to the datasets. Alexis developed the initial version of the ExaML software for phylogenetic inference on supercomputers and applied for the computing time on the SuperMUC HPC system. Simon and Fernando carried out the phylogenetic analyses on the SuperMUC using ExaML. Tomas and Paschalia substantially contributed to the dating analyses.
