Period21 Aug - 27 Aug 2005
The meeting was devoted to mathematical aspects of population genetics, a branch of theoretical biology that is concerned with the genetic structure of populations under the influence of various evolutionary processes such as genetic drift, mutation, selection, recombination, and migration. The main focus was on probabilistic aspects of the dynamics, with the Moran model and its relatives as a central theme, and the corresponding stochastic processes forward and backward in time as a unifying point of view.
