We have launched the Mint Phylogeny Working Group (MPWG) involving Lamiaceae experts worldwide who will share their knowledge and expertise towards developing a rich understanding of evolutionary patterns and processes within the family and contribute to a revised classification. We hope to bring the Lamiaceae community together under the umbrella of this ambitious project. Towards that end, we will host annual summits to discuss research progress and provide training on topics such as NGS and methods of downstream data analysis. In addition to contributing knowledge and expertise, collaborators will also provide vouchered DNA samples and morphological matrices that can contribute to overall synthesis.
If you are interested in joining our global network of research collaborators or participating in the activities of the MPWG, please contact us via the link at the top of this page.
