- CIPRES Building the Tree of Life: Cyber Infrastructure for Phylogenetic Research
A large, 5-year collaborative effort with principal partner
institutions University of Texas at Austin, University of
California at San Diego, University of California at Berkeley,
and Florida State University, plus 8 other partner institutions
(see the Sept. 17, 2003,
press releases), funded by NSF Cooperative Agreement
Poster-style overviews (featured at the NSF' ITR Committee of Visitors'
meeting in March 2005) are available for
- Algorithms for phylogeny reconstruction.
With Tandy Warnow (UT), Robert K. Jansen (UT), David A. Bader (UNM), and
other biology colleagues at UT Austin, Central Washington U., and Penn.
State U. Supported by three NSF grants (see the
UNM press release),
DEB 01-20709, and by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Brief overviews are available for the
gene-order project (which is
featured in NSF' Division of Experimental and Integrative Activities
(EIA) Research Highlights for 2001)
and for the complex evolution

feature article on some of our results from Fall 2001.
Also supported through NIH grant 2R01GM056120-05A1,
Genome Erosion in Infectious Microorganisms (Howard Ochman,
U. of Arizona, PI), under a subcontract to the U. of Arizona.
- Shared-memory parallel computing for discrete
combinatorial problems. With David A. Bader (UNM).
Supported by NSF grants
ACI 00-81404 and
ANI 02-03584, and by an IBM award (the PERCS project, under the DARPA HPCS initiative).
Also supported through NSF grant
and internal grants from Sun Microsystems for the purchase of
a 14-processor, 14GB Sun E4500 lab research platform
and through NSF grant
for the purchase of a large SMP for computational science research.
