Speaker: Professor Dave Westneat. Department of Biology, University of Kentucky
Biological variation is organized hierarchically; it exists among taxa, among populations, among genotypes or individuals, and within genotypes or individuals.

2018
Speaker: Graeme S. Cumming, ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University
We face an urgent need for better theories of rapid change in social-ecological systems.

Oct
2018
Speaker: Professor Jotun Hein, Bioinformatics at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford
Summary: Long Indel [MLH04] and the irreversible generalization is the sixth of 12 lectures on Biological Sequence Analysis [BSA], I give at ANU, Canberra, Australia in September to November 2018.     BSA is a huge field since sequences are presently so abundant.

Speaker: Florence Danila, von Caemmerer Group
C4 photosynthesis requires a combination of both biochemical and anatomical specialisation of leaf cells.

2018
Speaker: Leonie Moyle, Indiana University
For decades, studies of rapid species radiations have provided insight into the processes that drive biological diversification, but recently these analyses have been revolutionized by data from next-generation sequencing technologies.

Speaker: Professor Jochen Brocks, Research School of Earth Sciences, ANU
The transition from dominantly bacterial oceans to more complex eukaryotic ecosystems was one of the most profound revolutions in our planet’s history. It changed the distribution of nutrients in the oceans, and dramatically transformed ecosystems.

Speaker: Professor Jotun Hein, Bioinformatics at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford
This and the next two lectures deals with stochastic models of insertion-deletions, which is an alternative to score based alignment methods.  This approach should appeal to statisticians.   This approach is more consistent approach to analysis of homologous sequences over the use optimization al

Speaker: Professor Jotun Hein, Bioinformatics at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford
BSA is a huge field since sequences are presently so abundant. So far Jotun has covered pairwise and multiple alignment optimizing some score function or defined via a heuristic algorithm.

Speaker: Camilla Whittington, Sydney School of Veterinary Science, University of Sydney
Evolutionary innovations such as eyes, venom, and live birth (viviparity) are dramatic, adaptive novelties that have shaped the evolutionary trajectories of animals.

Oct
2018
Speaker: Professor Jotun Hein, Bioinformatics at the Department of Statistics, University of Oxford
Multiple Sequence Optimization Alignment by Heuristic Methods is the third of 10 lectures on Biological Sequence Analysis [BSA], I give at ANU, Canberra, Australia in September to December 2018.     BSA is a huge field since sequences are presently so abundant.
