Welcome to the home of the AToL project

The AToL initiative (Assembling the Tree of Life) is a large research effort sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Its goal is to reconstruct the evolutionary origins of all living things.

Most research projects sponsored under AToL fund collaborations between Universities to investigate evolutionary relationships among a group of related organisms, or clade.

Other projects fund collaborations between Universities to develop new computational tools to create and distribute new knowledge among researchers and the public.
