Tree of Sex workshop 2024

We cordially invite all interested parties to the Tree of Sex workshop 2024, which will take place from 1st to 4th July in Viničná 7. The Tree of Sex project aims to gather all known information about reproductive systems from sexual and asexual reproduction to the evolution of separate sexes and the degeneration of sex chromosomes. This information will be concentrated in a publicly accessible and maintained database that will ultimately allow scientists to test large-scale questions about the evolution of reproductive strategies and their impact on life history, genomes, adaptation and diversification of organisms in nature. You can also participate in the workshop online.
