This workshop takes place at the Mathematics Centre, Chalmers, Göteborg. Talks will focus on probability theory, tree structures, and problems motivated by genetics. (Be aware, however, that this is a mathematics meeting, not a genetics meeting!) The main event is a four hour mini-course by Elchanan Mossel, and in addition there will be talks by five other researchers.
Organizer: Olle Häggström
