Center for Computational Evolutionary Morphometry

The Center for Computational Evolutionary Morphometry (CCEM) at the University of Copenhagen brings together leading experts from evolutionary biology, computer science, and mathematical modelling to further our understanding of organismal change through time. We wish to gain phylogenetic information from observed phenotypes through advance stochastic shape analysis, enabling the computational modelling of morphological evolution.

By way of this cross-disciplinary collaboration that combines modern infinite dimensional shape analysis, stochastic shape modelling and phylogenetic inference, we aim to identify evolutionary trends across the Tree of Life, revealing hidden patterns of biodiversity and kinships between species.
