Final Tree of Life meeting

15.07.2010

Introduction

The 'Questioning the Tree of Life' network met for the last time in London this month.

Story

The final meeting of the Leverhulme Trust-funded was held on 10-11 July. It tackled the theme of 'Beyond the Tree of Life', and generated extensive cross-disciplinary discussion as well as superb presentations on the most up-to-the-minute knowledge in the field.

Our usual mix of biologists (including biostatisticians and computational scientists), philosophers and historians was supplemented by artist/designer, Daisy Ginsberg, who provoked a lot of discussion on the 'synthetic kingdom' of life. A further set of publications is planned to follow on from the meeting, with the first target being the open-access journal, Biology Direct.
