The Institute of Evolution is proud to congratulate Sagi Snir on receiving full professorship!

Prof. Snir’s achievements made substantial contributions to computational evolutionary biology by developing new powerful methods for phylogenetic reconstruction (quartet methods and supertrees); identification of horizontal gene transfer and reconstruction of phylogenetic networks; and using the “universal pacemaker” approach for accurate analysis of epigenetic phenomena (DNA methylation, aging and tumor evolution).

Congratulations to our member Prof. Tzion Fahima who was recognized by the US-Israel Binational Agricultural Research and Development Fund (BARD), as world-class contributors to combating food insecurity.
