Participants Detail Information

Name: Wei-Jen Chen

Position: Assistant Professor

Institution: Institute of Oceanography, National Taiwan University

Area: Asia

Country: Taiwan


General Research Interest: My work and general research interests are broadly concerned with vertebrate molecular systematics and evolution, with emphasis on actinopterygian fishes. Currently, I’m focusing on the emerging field of phylogenomics that integrates the study of the evolution of living organisms using multiple genes or genomic data and the study of gene/genome function using phylogenetic data. For this project, I will use this approach as the tool to investigate diversity of the Cypriniformes and their natural history at different time scales

ACSI-2 Targeted Taxa:

Character Type: Molecular, Morphological

This is the primary page opening to two very large research initiatives on Cypriniformes fishes: the All Cypriniformes Species Inventory (ACSI-2), funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation DEB-1022720 (Dr. Lawrence M. Page, University of Florida), DEB-1023403 (Dr. Jonathan Armbruster, Auburn University), and DEB-1021840 (Dr. Richard L. Mayden, Saint Louis University )and The Cypriniformes Tree of Life (CToL), funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation EF-0431326 (Drs. R. L. Mayden, R. M. Wood, and N. Aspinwall). You can learn more about both of these international-scale studies using the links available on this site.
