Philippe Lemey: Visualizing Phylogenetics & Phylogeography

Philippe Lemey ( reviews past practices used to visualize taxon distributions based on ecological surveys. He then demonstrates how today's geotagged sequencing data can be visualized as phylogeographies, using statistical tools such as BEAST, which can employ GPUs to infer parameters for spatial population dispersal models. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2012, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( funded by EMBO & NIH.
