Workshop: Barriers to assembling phylogeny and data layers across the tree of life

The challenges to completing the Tree of Life and integrating data layers (NSF GoLife goals) are huge and vary across clades. Some groups have a nearly-complete tree but lack publicly available data layers, whereas other groups lack phylogenetic resolution or the resources to support tree / data integration. Partnering with Open Tree of Life and Arbor Workflows, FuturePhy will support a series of clade-based workshops to identify and solve specific challenges in tree of life synthesis and data layer integration.

RFP: 2 page proposals to fund small workshops and/or hackathons on completing the tree of life and integrating data layers for specific clades.
Proposal deadline: Nov. 1, 2015
Meeting dates: Feb 20-23 26-28, 2016 *note changed dates!*
Location: Gainesville, University of Florida
Participants per workshop: 10 maximum funded (virtual attendees possible)
Contacts: mwestneat@uchicago.edu (FuturePhy), karen.cranston@gmail.com (OpenTree), lukejharmon@gmail.com (Arbor)

The full call for participation and a link to a proposal template is available at the FuturePhy website.
