This is Kaie Kubjas' talk "What is ... phylogenetic algebraic geometry?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk was given on Friday, July 9, 4pm at FU Arnimallee 6, SR 031.
Phylogenetic algebraic geometry studies algebraic varieties arising from evolutionary trees. In this talk I will explain based on examples how to construct these algebraic varieties.
