CIPRES - Cyberinfrastructure for Phylogenetic Research
Title: CIPRES - Cyberinfrastructure for Phylogenetic Research
Title abbreviated: CIPRES
Creator: Warnow, Tandy [Project leader]
Abstract: Cyberinfrastructure for Phylogenetic Research (CIPRES) project is an open collaboration funded by the National Science Foundation [USA]. The group is led by Tandy Warnow and involves researchers (biologists, computer scientists, statisticians, and mathematicians) at thirteen institutions. The goal of the CIPRES project is to enable large-scale phylogenetic reconstructions on a scale that will enable analyses of huge datasets containing hundreds of thousands of bio molecular sequences. To achieve this goal we have brought together a group of researchers involved in phylogeny estimation, statistics, and computer science to create new solutions for the difficult computational problems that arise in inferring evolutionary relationships. The project has a 5 year development plan (2003-2008) to create a national computational infrastructure for the international systematic's community. The group is committed to providing open-source software. [Information of the supplier, modified]
