Project Title: Modeling and exploring evolution of anatomy ontologies using innovative stochastic process and two focal groups of insects

Sergei Tarasov (Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Univ. of Oslo, 2016) is developing novel ontology-based models for phenotypic evolution and tools for their statistical inference, including creating a software package in R, and is exploring the proposed model using two focal lineages of insects—dung beetles and wasps.
