This Biodiversity and Evolution mini-symposium will take place at SciLifeLab in Uppsala on May 4 and is part of a series of workshops and mini-symposia covering various research themes that are central for SciLifeLab. The specific focus of this mini-symposium is on patterns in genomes and the evolution of novel genes. The mini-symposium is jointly organized with a KAW-funded project on the evolution of new genes.
