About this Research Topic

Submission closed.

The Rising Stars in Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics, and Systematics series will showcase the high-quality work of internationally recognized scientists in the early stages of their careers. Edited and run by rising stars in the field, these collections will touch on a broad range of issues within the fields of Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics, and Systematics.

The collection “Reticulate Patterns and Processes of Molecular Evolution'' will focus on methods and applications. On one hand, the collection will include topics related to the development of novel methods to reconstruct phylogenetic networks from a variety of different mathematical, statistical and computational approaches. These new methods will highlight the challenges of network reconstruction as well as address the needs of biological big data in the XXI century. On the other hand, the collection will broadcast a broad range of applications of phylogenetic networks on a wide variety of organisms across the Tree of Life.

Rising Stars in Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics, and Systematics: Reticulate Patterns and Processes of Molecular Evolution will present the latest advances in theory, methodology, and applied research on patterns and processes of reticulate evolution. Specific research themes include (but are not limited to):

- Novel methods to reconstruct phylogenetic networks from different approaches: graph theory, algebraic geometry, coalescent theory
- Robustness studies on the accuracy and applicability of existing network methods on a variety of in silico or real data
- Novel mathematical insights on the space of phylogenetic networks as well as identifiability theory to determine what can and cannot be inferred from data
- Applications of phylogenetic networks on any domain in the Tree of Life to illustrate the widespread evidence of reticulate evolution

All Rising Star editors were individually selected by the Phylogenetics, Phylogenomics, and Systematics Specialty Chief Editor in recognition of their potential to influence the future directions in their respective fields.

Articles will be added to this collection as and when they pass peer review and all will be published Open Access. Please note that contributions will be decided upon by the editors - if you would like to submit a manuscript but were not initially invited, please get in touch and/or submit an abstract for evaluation. Early career researchers, as defined as being pre- or within 10 years of completing their PhD or equivalent training, should represent the lead or corresponding author.

Keywords: Networks, Hybridization, Gene flow, Reticulation, Introgression


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
