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...
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...
1–2pm 14 February 2019
Large analysis workflows are fragile ecosystems of software tools, scripts and dependencies. This complexity commonly makes these workflows not only irreproducible but sometimes...
1–2pm 7 February 2019
Recent years have seen a groundswell of support in the bioscience community for improved reproducibility of data analyses. One solution used by bioinformaticians to achieve this...
4–6 February 2019
Python is the world's most popular programming language for beginners thanks to its easy to read code and broad applicability. Bob Buckley and Cameron Jack from the ANU...
10am–12pm 1 February 2019
This Friday's workshop will be taught by Dr Erin Walsh about graphic design in R . Erin will cover the philosophy and good practice of...
9–10am 22 January 2019
A ten-year strategic plan for taxonomy and biosystematics in Australia and New Zealand was launched in late April 2018: Discovering Biodiversity: A decadal plan for taxonomy...
