Speaker: PhD Candidate Kiran Javed - Broer Group
B0AT1 (SLC6A19) is the major transporter of neutral amino acids at the intestinal epithelia and absorbs the bulk of the diet-derived neutral amino acids from the intestinal lumen. It also reabsorbs neutral amino acids in the renal proximal tubules.

Speaker: Thomas Guillerme, University of Queensland
Popular science asserts that after the extinction of the non-avian dinosaurs at the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary 66 million years ago, mammals rapidly diversified to fill newly empty ecological niches.

Speaker: Dr Saro Thavamanikumar & Dr Bala Thumma from Gondwana Genomics, ANU
Abstract - Genomic selection (GS) is a marker-based method to select superior seedlings. In forest trees, GS is expected to result in rapid genetic gains by reducing the breeding cycles and increasing the selection intensity.

Speaker: Pawan Parajuli, Verma Group, BSB, RSB
Shigella flexneri serotype 1c is a predominant serotype causing shigellosis in developing countries. It has a unique and highly modified O-antigen structure comprising of at least two distinct O-antigen modifying gene clusters (gtrI and gtrIc).

Rigor and reproducibility are at the core of modern science and set apart scientific inquiry from pseudoscience.  Statistics, data science skills, and rigor are fundamental to excel in 21st century biology. In addition, these are highly sough-after skill-sets on the current job market.

Speaker: Simone Blomberg, University of Queensland
Stochastic processes are commonly used to model various aspects of the evolution of organisms, both at the level of the population (e.g. gene frequencies), and at the level of the species (e.g. traits).
