Workshop on Emerging Topics in Cancer Evolution

Motivation and Workshop Goals

Cancer results from an evolutionary process that yields a heterogeneous tumor with distinct subpopulations and varying sets of somatic mutations. Viewing cancer through the lens of evolution is critical to improve our understanding of tumorigenesis and ultimately treatment of cancer. The workshop will focus on algorithms and models of evolutionary processes in cancer. Specifically, we aim to bring together the algorithmically-focused side of the cancer evolution community with the biologically-focused side. Topics could include:
