Evolution in Action

The International Conference Evolution in Action, taking place on Monte Verità, June 11-15, 2023. The conference brings together researchers with a common interest in genomic technologies and their application to evolutionary questions.

The genomic revolution has strongly altered the research field of evolutionary biology. Sequencing technologies have become so powerful and affordable that the genetic variability of entire genomes and even of many individuals can be directly studied. Such approaches enable research especially on rapid evolutionary changes and are key to understanding, e.g., the evolution of human, animal, and plant pathogens, domestication principles, and processes underlying rapid adaptation. With this conference, we aim to facilitate interdisciplinary research integrating biology, medicine, agricultural, and computer sciences to address evolutionary questions that are relevant to our changing world and society.
