Computational Methods for Paleogenomics and Comparative Genomics

Welcome to the Computational Paleogenomics group of Cedric Chauve, Department of Mathematics and Interdisciplinary Research in the Mathematical and Computational Sciences (IRMACS) Centre at Simon Fraser University.

The research of our group focuses primarily on computational approaches to understand the evolution of the architecture of genomes through genome rearrangements. Currently, our main interest considers the problem of inferring the architecture of ancestral genomes (of extinct species) through the comparison of related extant genomes (of descendants species and close outgroups). We also work on connected topics, namely phylogenomics, gene family evolution, in order to infer the ancestral gene content of extinct species, and genome rearrangements that aim at understanding large-scale evolutionary events between related species, both extant and extinct.
