The Computational Evolution group develops mathematical, statistical and computational approaches for understanding evolutionary processes based on genetic data.
We incorporate epidemiological models into phylogenetic inference in order to quantify pathogen dynamics directly from genetic sequencing data.
Through new phylogenetic tools we aim to reconstruct and predict within-host pathogen evolution.
We use phylodynamics to look into the past using both sequencing data from extant species and fossil data from extinct species.

Denise Kühnert was awarded a Marie-Heim-Vögtlin fellowship
