Would computational evolutionary biology go under Evolutionary biology or Evolutionary computation?

Just one small contribution: the study of critical mutation rates (which are relevent to allelic diversity and extinction) is very relevant, e.g. some of our papers:
A. Channon, E. Aston, C. Day, R. V. Belavkin and C. G. Knight, Critical Mutation Rate Has an Exponential Dependence on Population Size, in Advances in Artificial Life, ECAL 2011: Proceedings of the Eleventh European Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems, pp. 117-124, MIT Press, 2011. doi:10/m7m
E. Aston, A. Channon, C. Day and C. G. Knight, Critical Mutation Rate Has an Exponential Dependence on Population Size in Haploid and Diploid Populations, PLOS ONE 8(12): e83438, 2013. doi:10/qqc
E. Aston, A. Channon, R. V. Belavkin, R. Krasovec and C. G. Knight, Critical Mutation Rate has an Exponential Dependence on Population Size for Eukaryotic-Length Genomes, accepted for Proceedings of the Fifteenth International Conference on the Synthesis and Simulation of Living Systems (ALife XV), 2016.

Great question @qiemem - if @zamanlh has a chance to elaborate at some point I'd be really curious.
