Speaker: Zihui Zheng, PhD Student, Millar Lab, ANU
Abstract - miRNAs are a class of small RNAs that negatively regulate gene expression in eukaryotes. In plants, many miRNA families mediate silencing of target genes, which encode transcription factors involved in plant development and plant defence.

Speaker: David Raubenheimer, The University of Sydney
Modern technological sophistication has enabled us to delve deep into molecular and physiological mechanisms, but the ultimate causes of diet-related outcomes (growth, health, disease etc.) are best understood from an ecological and evolutionary perspective.

Speaker: Maja Adamska, BSB, RSB
Sponges are one of the simplest multicellular animals and are traditionally viewed as the oldest surviving animal clade.

2018
Speaker: Professor Thomas C. G. Bosch, University of Kiel, Germany
In the last decade, biology has made revolutionary advances from century-old debates about the relative importance of non-pathogenic bacteria.

Speaker: Robyn Shaw, Peakall Group, E&E, RSB
Genetic diversity is a key component of biodiversity, underpinning the fitness of individuals and the ability of species to adapt to environmental change. At the population-level, social, demographic and ecological processes are important in shaping patterns of genetic diversity.

2018
Speaker: Juanjo Nogueira Perez - Corry Group - Transport proteins and computational biophysics
DNA is the target biomolecule of many anticancer drugs because DNA replication is one of the most vulnerable cellular process.

Speaker: Dr Amanda Buyan - Corry Group - Transport proteins and computational biophysics
Voltage-gated sodium channels are integral in electrical signaling within the human body and are key targets for anesthetics and antiepileptic compounds used in surgeries and the treatment of neurological disorders.

Speaker: Bonnie Flohr, PhD Student, Evans lab
Abstract - Wheat (Triticum aestivum) production is important to global food security and the livelihoods of those who cultivate it.

2018
Speaker: Richard Moore, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin
An influential claim in recent evolutionary psychology is that the human mind is, at least in substantial part, a product of selection pressures for surviving in a social environment. This has given rise to a number of claims about the uniqueness of human forms of social cognition.

2018
Speaker: Teng Haotian, The University of Queensland
Sequencing by translocating DNA fragments through an array of nanopores is a rapidly maturing technology which offers faster and cheaper sequencing than other approaches. However, accurately deciphering the DNA sequence from the noisy and complex electrical signal is challenging.
