With recently developed coalescent-based analytical methods, coupled with technological advances for collecting genomic datasets across many individuals per putative species, we...
1–2pm 11 June 2019
DNA barcoding has become a mainstay in modern biodiversity studies. This talk will examine the role in biology that it has had in the past 15 years and how well DNA barcoding has...

The RSB Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Unit (CBBU) and Biological Data Science Institute (BDSI) are organizing workshops for students and staff from...
12–1pm 2 May 2019
Rapid environmental change threatens global biodiversity and has already led to the decline or extirpation of many taxa. Although phenotypic plasticity may enable populations to...
9am–5pm 11 April 2019
Genome sequencing of model species has yielded important insights into population history, adaptation and speciation. Applying population genomics methods across species with...
1–2pm 9 April 2019
CSIRO Special Seminar A recently published review of 73 historical reports from across the globe has shown that biodiversity of insects is threatened worldwide. Dramatic...
4–5pm 1 April 2019
The comparative approach, whether applied to traits, genes, or trees, forms the foundation of biological research. Moving these data into a semantic framework enables their...
1 April 2019
The increasingly easy access to large SNP datasets for wild organisms means that it’s an exciting time to be working in population genomics and molecular ecology. The size...
1–30 April 2019
This April discover life on and off campus with QuestaGame. #UniBioQuest The University BioQuest is a worldwide competition among universities to discover, learn about and...
10am–12pm 29 March 2019
This Friday we will practice mixed models again. We will finally play with random interactions and correlated random effects (like those used in genetic, phylogenetic or...
12–1pm 26 March 2019
Adaptation to environmental change is central to the origin and persistence of species. Mismatches between the timing of key life history events and optimal environmental...
9.30am 26 March – 5pm 28 March 2019
RevBayes provides an interactive environment for statistical computation in phylogenetics. It is primarily intended for modelling, simulation, and Bayesian inference in...
26–28 March 2019
Are you (or your student) new to molecular lab work? Could you (or they) benefit from an introduction to operating in a genetics lab? The EBL at ANU is offering a three-...
18 March 2019
Registration is now open for the EcoGenomics and BioInformatics Lab (EBL) and Biomolecular Resources Facility (BRF) Facilitated RNA Sequencing and associated...
12–1pm 21 February 2019
Adaptive radiation is one of the key drivers of species diversity, yet the mechanism through which it is achieved, and the outcome of the process, is largely unknown. We know that...
6.30–7.30pm 19 February 2019
The cause of acid rain was hotly debated for many years after its discovery in 1963. A lack of long-term or large-scale experimental data prevented action on this politically...
1–2pm 19 February 2019
All taxon surveys, biological control, DNA-barcoding, community impact, and the island Avatar Accelerated global change, especially as a result of changes in climate and land...
17–22 February 2019
Workshop applications close 31 October 2018 Phylogenetic analysis plays a central role in modern life sciences, being routinely used to reconstruct the relationships among...
